Consolidation of Swiss Share Trading on SIX Swiss Exchange Completed

May 2009

Effective 4 May 2009, SIX Group has completed the concentration of Swiss share trading in Zurich. Shares of Swiss blue chip companies (i.e. shares included in the Swiss Market Index and Swiss Leader Index) previously traded on SWX Europe in London, are now traded in the new Swiss Blue Chip Segment of SIX Swiss Exchange. Trading in the Swiss Blue Chip Segment is subject to transitional rules. Further harmonised and updated rules for SIX Swiss Exchange fully integrating the transitional rules for the Swiss Blue Chip Segment are expected in early 2010.

 SIX Group was advised by Bär & Karrer in this matter. The Bär & Karrer team comprised Rolf Watter (responsible partner) and Till Spillmann (managing associate) who was supported by Tamer Dürr (senior associate).
