  • and the Spanish stock exchanges in Madrid, Bilbao, Barcelona and Valencia

Type of shares: Bearer shares
Securities Code Number (ISIN Code): NL0000235190

In July 2000 EADS (stock exchange symbol EAD ) was created by merging Aerospatiale Matra of France, DASA of Germany (DaimlerChrysler Aerospace AG excluding MTU Triebwerke) and CASA of Spain (Construcciones Aeronauticas SA). Aerospatiale Matra was already listed on the Paris Stock Exchange prior to the merger. Its shares were then swapped on a one-to-one basis and new shares were issued.

In January 2014, EADS was renamed Airbus Group. As a result, its listing name (Airbus Group) and stock exchange symbol (AIR) were changed. However, its ISIN and Euronext codes remained unchanged. Airbus Group changed its stock market listing name to Airbus in January 2017. Its stock exchange symbol, ISIN and Euronext codes remain unchanged. On 12 April 2017 Airbus Group was renamed Airbus after approval of the respective resolution at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders.
