Groupe Eurotunnel enters the “CAC Next 20” index on the Paris Stock Exchange
Groupe Eurotunnel, the world leader in piggy-back transport and the leader in the cross-Channel market, quoted in Paris and London, will be added to the “CAC Next 20”, when markets close on 21 June. This decision was taken by the Expert Commission Indices Committee of NYSE Euronext on 4 June 2010.
The “CAC Next 20” index, considered to be the antechamber of the CAC 40, comprises the 20 most representative stocks, in terms of market capitalisation, cash flow and liquidity, following the 40 stocks included in the CAC 40. Groupe Eurotunnel SA is therefore today a potential entrant to the CAC 40 index.
The decision by the Expert Commission Indices Committee of NYSE Euronext is proof of the markets’
interest in transport, a sector which is at the heart of the economic and environmental challenges of the 21st Century.
GET is now quoted on the main following indices: CAC Next 20, SBF 120, DJ Stoxx 600, Next 150, MSCI World index, MSCI Europe.
Jacques Gounon, Chairman and Chief Executive of Groupe Eurotunnel SA, stated:
“This is a great opportunity and also a measure of how far this group has come. Entering the CAC Next 20 will enable us to increase the Group’s visibility in financial markets, and more than that, it is synonymous with the attention and respect we give to our shareholders”.
On 18 June, the GET share closed at 6.118 €.
