Axel Springer To Delist On April 6 From Frankfurt Stock Exchange - Quick Facts

German media holding company Axel Springer SE (AXELF.PK) announced Wednesday that the Frankfurt Stock Exchange has informed that its delisting application has been approved. The Axel Springer SE shares will be delisted from the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in accordance with the stock exchange regulations at the end of April 6, 2020.

Thereafter, the Axel Springer SE shares can no longer be traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange after being a listed company for a 35-year period.
