In 2005, Electrolux de-listed its American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) from Nasdaq in response to the internationalization of capital markets and the increase in international ownership of shares on the Stockholm and London stock exchanges.
Electrolux intends to apply for deregistration with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Deregistration is expected to become effective during the fourth quarter 2007.
As a consequence of the application, Electrolux obligation to file certain reports and forms with the SEC, including the 20-F and 6-K, will be immediately suspended. Electrolux financial reports and press releases will continue to be made available in English on Electrolux website (www.electrolux.com).
Electrolux shares will continue to be listed on the stock exchanges in Stockholm and London. Electrolux has not terminated its ADR facility.
