Unscheduled adjustment in MDAX

Adjustments due to spin-off of METRO Wholesale & Food Specialist AG from METRO AG / MDAX calculation on 13 July with 51 companies

On Wednesday, Deutsche Börse announced an unscheduled change to the MDAX index. Following the spin-off of METRO Wholesale & Food Specialist AG from METRO AG, an adjustment of MDAX is required. On 13 July, METRO Wholesale & Food Specialist AG will therefore be included in MDAX for one day. This adjustment ensures the trackability of the index for investors. The MDAX Index will accordingly be calculated on a basis of one additional company for one day.

METRO Wholesale & Food Specialist AG will enter the index with a price of zero. The total number of shares and free float used for METRO Wholesale & Food Specialist AG in the index is given by the parent share, METRO AG, in the index and the ratio for the spin-off. At the close of Xetra-trading on 13 July, METRO Wholesale & Food Specialist AG will be taken out of the MDAX Index, and the METRO AG weighting will be adjusted accordingly.

The next scheduled index review is 5 September 2017.
