Bank Austria Creditanstalt shares registered in public trading

Today, the Polish Securities and Exchange Commission registered Bank Austria Creditanstalt (BA-CA) shares in public trading. The decision clears the way to the first public trading of an international company on the Polish stock exchange. The BA-CA stock will be dually listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange and the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE). BA-CA shares will have their debut on the WSE in middle of October. The trading on the two stock exchanges will be governed by different rules, which are specific to each of these markets, and on the basis of applicable trading regulations.

“The listing of the BA-CA share in Warsaw underlines the importance of the Polish market to our bank. In 1991 we were the first international bank to enter the Polish market. Now we will become the first international company to be listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. We are very pleased with this,” said Willi Hemetsberger, member of the Executive Board of Bank Austria Creditanstalt.

The Issue Prospectus of BA-CA shares, containing the details of the shares admitted to public trading in Poland, will be made available at all Customer Service Points of brokerage houses throughout the country in a few days.
