(Vienna) At yesterday’s meetings of the executive bodies, the Vienna Stock Exchange decided to simplify its group structure. In order to reduce expenses and costs, Wiener Börse AG will be merged with the former group holding company CEESEG AG. The Prague Stock Exchange is thus a 99.54% subsidiary of Wiener Börse AG. Other shareholdings include the Austrian securities clearing house CCP.A, the energy exchanges and clearing companies CEGH, EXAA, APCS and CISMO. The management board and ownership structure of Wiener Börse AG remain unchanged. The change will become effective at the beginning of April, subject to entry in the commercial register.
