(Vienna) The application of the rules and regulations has led to changes in both the ATX Global Players and the ATX Family index. As of Monday, 18 September, BAWAG Group AG will be included in the ATX Global Players. This is the result of a review of the company's turnover. The ATX Global Players is composed of those companies of the prime market that generate more than 20% of their revenues on the world market and will in future comprise 16 index members. The sectors currently most represented in the index are Production technology & Machinery (26%), Mining & Metals (19%), Hardware & Equipment (12%), Chemicals (11%), as well as Automobiles & Suppliers and Food, Beverages & Tobacco (10% each). The maximum index weighting is adjusted quarterly to 20%.
STRABAG AG and PIERER Mobility AG are included in the ATX Family
With STRABAG SE and PIERER Mobility AG there are also two new entries in the ATX Family. The ATX Family is a free float-weighted price index and includes all stocks included in the ATX Prime in which the founding families, management boards or supervisory boards hold between 25% and 75% of the shares or in which these shares are attributable to them. As a result of the two new inclusions, the ATX Family also grows to 16 index members with effect from Monday, 18 September.
The composition of the two indices is reviewed once a year in September. The calculation is based on a purely quantitative methodology, which is laid down in a set of rules. In addition to the changes in the ATX Global Player and ATX Family, the new composition of the ATX National Index will also come into effect next Monday, where Telekom Austria AG will replace STRABAG SE.
