(NDAQ), the two biggest operators of U.S. equity markets, say the following companies are based in China and gained listings on U.S. exchanges after conducting reverse mergers, in which a publicly traded shell corporation is purchased. Stocks that have been delisted from the Nasdaq Stock Market, NYSE Amex or New York Stock Exchange have been omitted.
