TUI has applied to delist its shares from the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the stock exchanges in Stuttgart, Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf and Munich as per 31 March 2015. The listing of the shares on the Hanover stock exchange is to be maintained.
TUI is therefore expected to leave the MDAX selection index by the end of March 2015 at the latest. The decision about the exact date is at the sole discretion of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
As announced in the framework of the merger with TUI Travel, TUI will immediately launch a secondary market quotation of its shares in the Open Market on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange when the delisting becomes effective in order to provide the opportunity for German investors to trade their TUI shares in euro.
The shares in the new TUI Group have been listed on the London Stock Exchange since 17 December 2014. The shares have been included in the FTSE UK Index Series and the FTSE 100 Index as of the same date.
