NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Blockbuster officially lost its coveted place on the Big Board today.

The movie rental retailer warned last week that it faced possible delisting from the New York Stock Exchange, after shareholders failed to approve a recapitalization plan, which included combining Class A and Class B common stock, or the option for a reverse stock split, which was necessary to comply with listing requirements.

NYSE halted trading of Blockbuster last Thursday afternoon as a result.

Blockbuster is currently trading on the OTCQB under the ticker BLOKA.PK.
