Unscheduled component change in MDAX
Deutsche Börse today decided on unscheduled changes in MDAX. Due to the takeover of Douglas Holding by Beauty Holding Three AG, the free-float of Douglas Holding dropped below 10 percent. The company therefore no longer meets the minimum free-float criteria of the index. In MDAX the shares of Talanx will replace Douglas Holding. Consequently, the changes to SDAX that were announced on 5 December will not be implemented and the shares of Constantin Medien will remain in SDAX. The changes will be effective as of 12 December 2012. The next regular index review will be held on 5 March 2013. DAX®, MDAX®, SDAX® and TecDAX® are registered trademarks of Deutsche Börse AG.
