In a statement, the NYSE said “it no longer intends to move forward with the delisting action.” The NYSE cited “consultation with relevant regulatory authorities” for its reversal.

Just last week, the NYSE said it would remove the shares to comply with a U.S. government order that bars investments in 35 companies owned or controlled by the Chinese military.
