Moscow Exchange welcomes Etalon Group to its Equity Market
On 3 February 2020, trading in Global Depository Receipts (GDRs) of Etalon Group, one of Russia’s largest and longest-established development and construction companies, launched on Moscow Exchange’s Equity Market. The security ticker is ETLN.
Yury Denisov, CEO of Moscow Exchange, said:
"We are very pleased that a growing number of companies that already have listings on a foreign exchange have recognised the importance of an additional listing in Moscow. For Etalon Group this is an opportunity to expand its investor base and unlock additional demand for its shares, especially from private investors. This listing will enable domestic investors to diversify their portfolios with shares of a leading company in the promising and socially important construction sector. I wish Etalon Group success in this new page of its history as a Moscow-listed company."
Sergey Egorov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Etalon Group, said:
"Listing on Moscow Exchange is an important step for the Company in terms of improving the investment appeal of Etalon Group’s GDRs. Both international and Russian institutional investors value Moscow Exchange for its convenience and reliability. We are pleased that, starting today, a wide range of investors who were previously unable to acquire the Company’s GDRs on the London Stock Exchange will now be able to add securities from one of the largest companies in the Russian development market to their portfolios. In addition, access to Moscow Exchange enables us to be included in various stock indices, which we hope will contribute to further growth of Etalon Group’s share liquidity and market capitalisation."
