On 5/27/2024, LABORATORY CORP AMER HLDGS NEW shares were exchanged for LABORATORY CP AMER HLDGS NEW. One to one exchange.

How is this recorded in Quicken? After the download from the broker, Quicken created 2 placeholders, one for the missing shares and one for the new shares. Should I record this as a corporate name change and delete the placeholders, or some other way?

Thank you.

    This came from the New York Stock Exchange:

    ___________________________________________________________

    NOTIFICATION OF THE REMOVAL FROM LISTING AND REGISTRATION OF THE STATED
    SECURITIES

    The New York Stock Exchange hereby notifies the SEC of its intention to
    remove the entire class of the stated securities from listing and
    registration on the Exchange at the opening of business on May 31, 2024,

    [ X ] 17 CFR 240.12d2-2(a)(3) That on May 17, 2024 the instruments
    representing the securities comprising the entire class of this security
    came to evidence, by operation of law or otherwise, other securities in
    substitution therefore and represent no other right except, if such be
    the fact, the right to receive an immediate cash payment.

    Pursuant to the formation of a holding company which became effective on

    America Holdings (Old) was suspended from trading before market open on
    May 20, 2024.

    It does seem to be nothing more than a name change, but I'm not entirely sure. I can't find any indication that the CUSIP has changed.

    I'd simply change the name of your prior holding.

    And, from LabCorp's website:

    Today Labcorp announced that it intends to implement a new holding company structure on May 17, 2024. The name of the new holding company will be Labcorp Holdings Inc. The new parent company will replace Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings as the publicly-traded entity and Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Labcorp Holdings Inc. The new parent's name is more closely aligned with the brand name, and the company will have a structure that is optimized to reflect the company's operations. Common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE on an uninterrupted basis under the existing symbol "LH" and Laboratory Corporation of America stockholders will automatically become stockholders of Labcorp Holdings Inc. on a one-for-one basis with all of the same rights.

    as identified in NotACPA’s post above, the symbol did not change; it remains as LH.
