AB Electrolux (STO:ELUXA) (STO:ELUXB) (LSE:ELXB) B-share will be delisted from the Official List of the UK Listing Authority, UKLA, and the London Stock Exchange, LSE, effective of March 11, 2010. On December 16 last year, Electrolux communicated that the Board of Directors had decided to apply for such a delisting.
The Electrolux B-share has been listed on the LSE since 1928. The LSE listing has been a part in a strategy to increase international ownership in Electrolux. However, this listing is no longer deemed necessary due to deregulation of international capital markets and the increased foreign ownership of shares on Nasdaq OMX Stockholm. In recent years, trading of Electrolux shares on the LSE has been limited.
Following the delisting, all trading in Electrolux shares will be concentrated to Nasdaq OMX Nordic Market in Stockholm. Electrolux has also exited its other international listings in recent years, including those of Paris, Zürich and Geneva as well as New York's Nasdaq.
