ETALON GROUP PLC (“Etalon Group” or the “Company”), one of Russia’s largest and longest-established development and construction companies, announces that its Board of Directors decided on 12 May 2023 to apply for a primary listing on Moscow Exchange.
In 2011, Etalon Group received its primary listing on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. Since 2020, the Company’s global depositary receipts (GDRs) have been traded, under the ticker ETLN, on the main market of Moscow Exchange and included in its Level 1 quotation list.
The Company plans to change the status of its listing on Moscow Exchange to primary by registering a prospectus for its existing GDRs with the Bank of Russia in accordance with Regulation of the Bank of Russia No. 714-P of 27 March 2020 and Directive of the Bank of Russia No. 5951-U of 29 September 2021 in the context of the procedure for receiving permission from the Bank of Russia to allow existing GDRs to be publicly traded in Russia. The change of Etalon Group listing status to primary is subject to approval by the Bank of Russia.
The procedure for changing the listing status on Moscow Exchange will not require any additional actions on the part of holders of the Company’s GDRs and will not place any restrictions on trading in Etalon Group’s GDRs.
