Bombardier announced today that its applications to de-list its Class B shares (subordinate voting) from the official markets of the Frankfurt and Euronext Brussels stock exchanges have been granted. The effective date of de-listing is March 7, 2005 for the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and Dec. 31, 2004, for the Euronext Brussels, after closing of markets. Bombardier’s decision to de-list from both stock exchanges was due to the very low volume of the Corporation’s shares being traded on these exchanges. The Class B shares are listed and will continue to be traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
A world-leading manufacturer of innovative transportation solutions, from regional aircraft and business jets to rail transportation equipment, Bombardier Inc. is a global corporation headquartered in Canada. Its revenues for the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2004 were $15.5 billion US and its shares are traded on the Toronto, Brussels and Frankfurt stock exchanges (BBD, BOM and BBDd.F).
