Leonardo DRS, Inc. (Nasdaq and TASE: DRS) (“Leonardo DRS” or the “Company”) today announced that it is taking steps to voluntarily delist its common stock from the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (the “TASE”).
Pursuant to Israeli law, the delisting of Leonardo DRS’s common stock is expected to take effect three months following the date of the Company’s request to the TASE to delist the Company’s common stock, which occurred on September 27, 2023. During the interim period, Leonardo DRS’s common stock will continue to be traded on the TASE.
The delisting in Israel will not affect Leonardo DRS’s continued listing on Nasdaq under the symbol “DRS” and all shares of common stock now traded on the TASE may be transferred to Nasdaq. The Company will continue to file public reports and make public disclosures in accordance with the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and Nasdaq.
“At this time, we believe that it is in the best interest of our Company and its stockholders that we concentrate our market activity on a single exchange,” said Bill Lynn, Chairman and CEO of Leonardo DRS. “We are grateful to all of the investors who traded our common stock on the TASE and thank them for their ongoing support.”
