- ICA shares will continue to trade on the Mexican Stock Exchange
MEXICO CITY, June 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Empresas ICA, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:ICA) (NYSE:ICA) announced today that it intends to voluntarily delist its American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”), evidenced by American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), from the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”). This action does not affect ICA’s listing on the Mexican Stock Exchange, where approximately 80% of its worldwide trading volume currently takes place.
On January 7, 2016, ICA received notice from the NYSE that its ADS’s had traded for 30 consecutive days below US$1.00 per share, and therefore did not meet the requirements for continued listing on the NYSE, subject to a six-month cure period. Today, ICA will provide written notice to the NYSE of its intent to delist. ICA plans to file the related Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) shortly thereafter and expects the delisting to become effective ten days later. Accordingly, the Company anticipates that the last day of trading of its ADSs on the NYSE will be on or about July 17, 2016.
ICA reserves the right, for any reason, to delay these filings or to withdraw them prior to their effectiveness, and to otherwise change its plans in this regard.
