Hall of Shame
Orsus Xelent Technologies (ORS US)
In Jun 2011, share price surged (more than 6 times trough to peak) after the company's 2011 Q1 results in which the company announced a $32 million "profit" ($12.73/share) due to a "non-cash reversal of allowance for bad debt."
The GeoTeam pointed out that the company has no discernible business operation and that it was facing a liquidity crisis.
The company was notified by NYSE that it was not in compliance with the Exchange's Company Guide with respect to its financial condition. It was delisted in Oct 2011.
