Boliden applies for voluntary delisting of its shares from the Toronto Stock Exchange
The Boliden share´s main listing is on the NASDAQ OMX Stockholm Exchange in the Large Cap segment. The share also has a secondary listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). The share is included in several international indices in addition to the NASDAQ OMX index.
Boliden has today submitted an application for the voluntary delisting of its shares from the TSX. The principal reason is that the trading volume on the TSX has decreased significantly in comparison to NASDAQ OMX Stockholm Exchange and alternative marketplaces, so-called Multilateral Trading Facilities (MTF). In 2012 55 per cent of the shares were traded in Stockholm and 45 per cent at different MTFs while only a fraction of the turnover took place in Toronto.
