Carl Zeiss Meditec AG to be included in MDAX

Three changes in SDAX/Changes to be effective as of 27 December 2018

On Wednesday, Deutsche Börse announced changes to its selection indices, which will become effective on 27 December 2018. The shares of Carl Zeiss Meditec AG will be included in the MDAX index and will replace the shares of CTS Eventim AG & CO. KGaA, which will be included in the SDAX index.

The exclusion of CTS Eventim AG & CO. KGaA is based on the fast exit rule; Carl Zeiss Meditec AG is eligible for the index inclusion due to its market capitalisation and order book turnover. MDAX tracks the 60 largest and most liquid companies below DAX.

The following changes will apply to SDAX: CTS Eventim AG & CO. KGaA, Knorr-Bremse AG and VARTA AG will be included. The shares of BayWa AG and DMG Mori AG will be deleted from the index, according to the fast exit rule. SDAX tracks the 70 next biggest and most actively traded companies after the MDAX.

The constituents of the indices DAX and TecDAX remain unchanged.

The next scheduled index review is 5 March 2019.
