Panasonic Reports Delisting Schedule From NYSE - Quick Facts

Panasonic Corp. (PC) announced the delisting schedule from the New York Stock Exchange or "NYSE" and notified to the NYSE on April 1, 2013 that it will apply for voluntary delisting of its American Depositary Shares or "ADSs", in relation with its announcement on March 28, 2013 on its intention of delisting from the NYSE.

Panasonic listed its ADSs on the NYSE in December 1971 primarily to promote trading of its shares and to raise the visibility of the Panasonic brand in the U.S.

While the company believes the initial objectives of the U.S. ADS listing were mainly achieved, it judges that the continued listing on the NYSE is not economically justified, considering the fact that the trading volume of Panasonic's ADSs on the NYSE accounts for only a small fraction of the total trading volume of Panasonic's shares. Hence, Panasonic would apply for voluntary delisting of its ADSs from the NYSE and for termination of registration of its ADSs with SEC under the Exchange Act.
