Infosys begins trade on NYSE Euronext London and Paris
Infosys took a major step in the globalization of the company by becoming one of the few companies to cross-list its shares in the U.S. and Europe. After the pioneering listing by an Indian company in the US in 1999, Infosys is now one of the few companies anywhere that enables investors to trade shares on exchanges in three continents across the world.
To celebrate this, CEO S.D. Shibulal rang the Opening Bell on NYSE Euronext in London, then travelled from London to New York, the very same day, to ring the Closing Bell on the New York Stock Exchange – the first CEO of an NYSE Euronext listed company ever to do this.
Speaking about the news during his trade mission to India, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron said, "Infosys is a great example of Indian investment in the U.K. and I’m delighted that they will be the first Indian company to be admitted to trade on NYSE Euronext London this week. This decision is a testament to Britain’s position as the gateway of choice for Indian companies wanting to invest in the European Union."
Commented S.D. Shibulal, “Listing on NYSE Euronext enables U.K., French and other European investors to have direct access to Infosys shares. The listing broadens our trading window between Mumbai and New York and demonstrates our commitment to the region as one of the key drivers of our next phase of growth.”
Infosys trades on the NYSE and NYSE Euronext under the ticker symbol “INFY”.
