SHW AG: Free trade continues on the Munich stock exchange .
Aalen, 17 May 2019. The Munich stock exchange has informed SHW AG that the shares of SHW have now also been admitted to the free trade segment of the Munich stock exchange, m:access. As already announced, SHW AG is repositioning itself on the stock exchange and is shifting its primary listing from the regulated market of the Frankfurt stock exchange to the free trade segment of the Munich stock exchange (m:access). The Management Board will apply for delisting of SHW shares from the regulated market of the Frankfurt stock exchange as soon as the offer documents related to the announced purchase offer from Pierer Industrie AG have been published. Delisting from the regulated market depends on affirmation from the Frankfurt stock exchange and is not scheduled to take effect until expiry of the period for accepting the offer.
"It was important for us that our company continues to have a presence on the stock exchange and that we ensure a high degree of transparency for our shareholders. Due to the fact that the m:access segment in Munich offers us more freedom to act at lower costs, with less administrative effort, we can concentrate more on our operating activities", explains Thomas Karazmann, CFO of SHW AG.
