The RadioShack bankruptcy (OTCMKTS: RSHC) is official, and the NYSE has delisted its shares from the index. The company filed Chapter 11 on Thursday, but there's a chance the brand will survive after reorganization. Under a last-minute deal, its emergency lender, hedge fund Standard General, will purchase up to 2,400 of the retailer's remaining stores. According to the deal, Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) will build a "store within a RadioShack store" retail presence in up to 1,750 of the acquired locations. The mobile company will take up one-third of the retailer's store locations and sell Sprint plans and mobile devices on all of its brands, including Boost and Virgin Mobile. Shares of Sprint were up more than 5% yesterday after the company reported strong customer growth.
