Translations of "Firm"

Q: Как сказать на Английском (американский вариант)? “are you firm on asking price” what does it means?

Being firm - Being determined / Not open to changing your mind
Asking price - The price the seller will accept, basically the "price" set by the person who's selling it.

Q: Как сказать на Английском (американский вариант)? ‎“Chinese firms that fail U.S. accounting standards to be delisted as of 2022 - Mnuchin”

Why the sentence use “of 2022” not just “as 2022”

A: It would read better written as "will be delisted" instead of "to be" first of all.
It sounds better saying "as of 2022" though because it's short for saying "as of the year 2022," otherwise "as the year 2022 comes" / "as 2022 comes" would be reasonable but unnecessary.

Saying "delisted as 2022" would imply 2022 was delisted, in a literal sense, which doesn't make sense. "As" in that case alone is interpreted like "like." "As of" as a phrase of itself however is interpreted more readily to mean "in" almost, "as of the case" / "in the case" mean almost the same thing for example.
Q: Как сказать на Английском (американский вариант)? firm value has negative impact on earnings
A: I think you mean: firm values have negative impact on earnings.
Q: Как сказать на Английском (американский вариант)? ぷりぷり(えびの食感は firm and crisp?)
