BaFin Approves Leica Shares

From Leica Camera AG Corporate Communications:

"Today, the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin—Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht) approved the listing prospectus of Leica Camera AG, Solms, for the listing in the Official Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange of the new shares originating from the Company’s capital increase in August 2005 (ISIN DE000A0EPU72). It is expected that both the aforementioned new shares (ISIN DE000A0EPU72) and the old shares of Leica Camera AG (ISIN DE000A0EPU98)—the latter already listed in the Official Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange—will be traded under ISIN DE000A0EPU98 as from the beginning of next calendar week after the approval—which is expected by Leica Camera AG—by the Stock Exchange Admission Board (Börsenzulassungsstelle). As a result, the old and the new shares of the Company will have equal status in respect of stock exchange trading, in addition to their hitherto already equal status in respect of securitisation of rights in the Company. Since November 2005 the new shares have been traded on the Open Market of the Berlin-Bremen Stock Exchange under ISIN DE000A0EPU72."

Catchy, huh? And Mike thought Canon used incomprehensible names.

Those folks in the G.F.F.S.A. must have very large business cards.

"Antidisestablishmentarianism" is considered the longest word in english. This pales into comparison with Vierwaldstaetterseedampfschiffahrtsgesellschaft. (supposed to be one of the longest german words). Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht is a tad shorter.
