Oneida Delisted From NYSE, Will Trade On OTC Market

May 17, 2004
Oneida Ltd. recently announced that its common stock has been suspended from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and is being traded on the Over the Counter (OTC) market. The OTC market is a regulated quotation service that displays real-time quotes, last-sale prices and volume information for over 3000 companies. Oneida said the NYSE notified the company that trading of its common stock was suspended effective May 11, 2004, because Oneida had fallen below the NYSE's continued listing standards for global market capitalization and total stockholders' equity. Oneida's stock will be traded on the OTC market under the symbol ONEI. The OTC market is comprised of the National Quotation Service Bureau, commonly referred to as the Pink Sheets, and the Over the Counter Bulletin Board.
