I sold Debenhams shares on the 8th of April and they got delisted on the 10th. I understand that there is a T+2 settlement period but in this case they fell on the same day.

Is there a procedure to follow and will I still receive cash regardless of what happens with the company?

  • Have you confirmed your trade actually didn't settle? Do you still have those shares in your account?

If you sold the shares then the delisting has no effect on you. That problem belongs to the guy who bought the shares.

    I think OP may not understand that shares of unlisted companies don't disappear. They are naturally a lot less liquid, but still represent the same ownership fraction as they ever did.
