Nasdaq has delisted the UNIX technology company SCO, citing its filing for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code as the reason.

An excerpt from

The Lindon, Utah-based company’s shares were taken off the Nasdaq because of the bankruptcy proceedings, the company said Thursday in a statement. The company had appealed Nasdaq’s decision to do so but lost its appeal on December 21, the company said in a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The SCO group had been fighting a major litigation case against IBM but suffered a major loss in August 2007. The company will be looking forward to its mobile platform and UNIX services for revival.
