Vortiv Ltd (ASX:VOR) has announced a trading halt.

There are a few reasons why a stock would go into a trading halt. It is generally ahead of a news announcement.

Vortiv Ltd has requested the trading halt pending an announcement by Vortiv in relation to the execution of a binding Share Purchase Agreement for an acquisition by Vortiv Ltd.

Trading halts are typically enacted in anticipation of a news announcement, to correct an order imbalance, as a result of a technical glitch or due to regulatory concerns.

Halts may also be triggered by severe down moves, in what are called circuit breakers or curbs.

The trading halt will remain in place until normal trading commences on December 8, 2021 or when the company announcement is made.
