Etalon Group Announces Intention to Cancel Listing on London Stock Exchange

18 July 2023

ETALON GROUP PLC (“Etalon Group” or the “Company”), one of Russia’s largest and longest-established development and construction companies, announces its intention to cancel the listing of its global depositary receipts (GDRs) on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The decision was taken on 17 July 2023 at a meeting of the Company’s Board of Directors.

Etalon Group has been listed on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange since 2011. In connection with the suspension of trading in the Company’s depositary receipts from 3 March 2022, Etalon Group requested that the UK Financial Services Authority (FCA) cancel the listing of the Company’s GDRs, issued under Regulation S (ISIN US29760G1031) and Rule 144A (ISIN US29760G2021), and that the London Stock Exchange cancel the admission of the GDRs to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.

In accordance with Listing Rule 5.2.8, 16 August 2023 will be the last day the GDRs are listed on the London Stock Exchange. Therefore, the LSE Listing Cancellation becomes effective as of 8:00 a.m. (London time) on 17 August 2023.

In July 2023, the Bank of Russia decided to register a prospectus for the Company’s GDRs 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 and to allow Etalon Group’s GDRs to be publicly traded in Russia. Therefore, the Company completed the process of changing the basis for its listing on Moscow Exchange. Following the LSE listing cancellation, the Company will maintain its GDR listing on the regulated market of Moscow Exchange.

The GDR programme remains in force and is operational. GDR holders may exercise their rights under this security in full.
