  • 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.

2016


On 30 October 2015, Airbus Group SE announced a €1 billion share buyback for completion by 30 June 2016. Airbus Group SE appointed an Investment Services Provider (ISP) for the implementation of its share buyback as authorised by the Annual General Meeting of 27 May 2015. Under the terms of the agreement signed on 30 October 2015, the parties agreed that the ISP would sell a certain number of Airbus Group SE shares representing a maximum of €1 billion to Airbus Group SE, which undertook to buy them at market price between 2 November 2015 and 30 June 2016. The final price reflected the arithmetic average of daily Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) over the execution period less a guaranteed discount and did not exceed the maximum purchase price approved by the Annual General Meeting of 27 May 2015. All of the shares bought back under the agreement were cancelled.
