Without going too much into details, I bought some IPO back in the early 2000's. Company had never going public and couple years later, I "kinda forgot" about my shares. Today I found the (paper) stock certificate, so I started looking online for info on this company, but search went fruitless. And yes, I already did search the website of the Secretary of State.
I'm now wondering what to do about this scenario. While I don't expect this IPO that is in my hands to make me rich, I'd hope that I can still get some money back. It would suck if the company is now dead but I don't know anymore I remember that I *MIGHT* have the CEO's email but unable to retrieve it at the moment.
So all you Wall Street gurus out there, please let me know if you have any advice. Thanks
