General information

Since 10 July 2000, Airbus shares have been listed on: 

  • the Paris Stock Exchange
  • the Frankfurt Stock Exchange
  • 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.

Airbus is included in the following major indices:

  • CAC 40 (French key index)

Disclosure of transaction in own stock realised during the year

2018

Airbus started implementing a share buyback programme on 28 February 2018 for the sole purpose of covering its long-term incentive plan in shares. The repurchased shares will be redistributed to the beneficiaries of long-term incentive plans according to the relevant plan rules. The share buyback programme was completed on 10 April 2018.

The share buyback was undertaken pursuant to the general authority conferred on the Airbus SE Board of Directors by the 13th resolution to repurchase up to 10% of Airbus SE’s issued share capital by the Annual General Meeting of shareholders of Airbus SE on 12 April 2017.

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.
