The listing of Celesio shares in the market segment “m:access” is expected to end with the expiry of 29 July 2016 and the inclusion in the unofficial market on 31 March 2017.
The Management Board also resolved to take the necessary steps in August 2016 to end the listing of Celesio AG’s shares in the regulated unofficial market segment “Primärmarkt” of Börse Düsseldorf AG and the inclusion of Celesio shares in the unofficial market of the Düsseldorf stock exchange. The listing of Celesio shares in the Düsseldorf unofficial market segment “Primärmarkt” will then be terminated at the end of September 2016 and the inclusion in the unofficial market on 31 March 2017.
The existing inclusion of Celesio shares in the unofficial markets of the stock exchanges in Hamburg and Hannover was not initiated by Celesio AG and will hence not be affected.
