Troubled payments company Finablr has been told it cannot delist from the London Stock Exchange without a vote by its shareholders, Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said on Thursday.

Finablr was bought by a Middle Eastern consortium and rebranded as WizzFinancial to create a regional money transfer group.

The company’s shares have been suspended since March 2020.

Finablr’s application to delist under a rule allowing firms in a precarious financial position to sidestep a shareholder vote has not met the necessary conditions, the FCA said.
