Search API "ReasonDelisted"

Hi, everybody! I keep working with delisted companies' data and I have successfully retrieved a list of these companies using the "ReasonDelisted" selector, as illustrated in the attached screenshot. However, I have encountered a limitation with the scope of reasons provided for delisting. Currently, the data only reflects two reasons: "Acquired" and "Merged". Notably, it lacks information on companies that have either filed for bankruptcy or transitioned to private ownership.

This omission leads me to two questions:

  1. What is the reason for the absence of other delisting reasons in the dataset, particularly for companies that have gone bankrupt or private?
  2. I have observed that some companies, despite having undergone mergers, do not have this information reflected in their "ReasonDelisted" field. Could you provide insight into why this might be the case?

Furthermore, to delist return calculations, I am interested in obtaining detailed terms of acquisition or merger for the companies in question. Is there a methodology or tool available that would allow for the collection of this specific data?Screenshot 2024-02-14 at 11.08.19.png

Thank you in advance!

Hi @vitali

I checked the domain of "ReasonDelisted" and as you, I only saw: "Acquired" and "Merged". My only guess is that no other information was gathered. Perhaps if it doesn't fall into either one of these categories, then the content team may categorize "NA" as everything else.

Because this question is more about content as opposed to the specifics of the API, I would suggest you open a content ticket and they can bring in a content specialist to clarify if other reasons can be determined.
