The article reports on the postponement of the listing of Life Sciences Research on the New York Stock Exchange in 2005. It is speculated that animal rights activists have something to do with the decision to postpone the listing of the company on the stock exchange. In September, the holding company was set to list on the exchange, then, less than an hour before the public offering, stock exchange president Catherine Kinney told Huntingdon executives that the listing was being postponed.
