DP World Limited is pleased to announce that its shares have today been admitted to the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s main market for listed securities.
There was no new capital raised as part of the listing on the London Stock Exchange. The aim is to provide an additional platform to invest in DP World shares to help attract a broader range of investors. DP World shares will also continue to trade under DP World's existing listing on Nasdaq Dubai with its shares being fully fungible across both exchanges.
Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman of DP World commented, “Today marks another milestone in our history as DP World becomes the first Dubai Company to obtain a Premium listing on the London Stock Exchange. This is a very proud day for the Board and Management of DP World.”
Mohammed Sharaf, Chief Executive Officer commented, ”DP World is the only listed global port operator and we are delighted to be listed on the London Stock Exchange offering more investors the opportunity to invest in our unique company.”
