12 November 2008 - Consolidation of Swiss share trading on SIX Swiss Exchange as of mid-2009

November 2008

On 11 November 2008, SIX Group announced its decision to concentrate Swiss share trading in Zurich as of mid-2009. Consequently, trading in the shares of the Swiss blue chip companies (i.e. shares included in the Swiss Market Index and Swiss Leader Index), which currently is conducted on SWX Europe in London, will be relocated to SIX Swiss Exchange in Zurich and be subject to a harmonised regulatory environment. This is advantageous for issuers and market participants. Additionally, it enhances the efficiency of the exchange.

SIX Group is being advised by Bär & Karrer in this matter as to Swiss law. The Bär & Karrer team comprises partner Rolf Watter and associate Till Spillmann (both corporate and regulatory) and partner Mani Reinert (antitrust law).
