Etalon Group Limited was originally incorporated under Guernsey law with Global Depositary Receipts (GDRs) admitted to the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange under the ticker ETLN. On 15 December 2016 an Extraordinary General Meeting of shareholders held at Redwood House, St Julian’s Avenue, St Peter Port, Guernsey approved the change of domicile of the Company. As a result of the re-domicile, Etalon Group has migrated from Guernsey, and its name has been removed from the Guernsey Register of Companies.
From 5 April 2017 the Company is registered in Cyprus under the name ETALON GROUP PUBLIC COMPANY LIMITED with registration number HE 368052 and registered office at Arch. Makariou III, 2-4 CAPITAL CENTER, 9th floor 1065, Nicosia, Cyprus. At the Annual General Meeting held on 27 July 2017, the Company’s name was altered from ETALON GROUP PUBLIC COMPANY LIMITED to ETALON GROUP PLC.

The Company also complies with the relevant sections of the Financial Conduct Authority’s Listing Rules, Prospectus Rules and Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
Further, the Board recognises that it has a responsibility to set the correct ethical tone for the rest of the Etalon organisation to follow.
