30. November 2017

Vienna, 30 November 2017 – RHI Magnesita is pleased to inform about the announcement of the company’s inclusion in the FTSE 250 index. The inclusion marks an important milestone for the company and will further open up the stock to a wide audience of investors.

“The inclusion in the FTSE 250 index is another significant step towards the strategic repositioning of RHI Magnesita as the global leader in the refractory industry“, said the CEO of RHI Magnesita, Stefan Borgas. “Our focus now is to complete the integration, build the business in regions and products where we don’t have a significant presence, and use our combined best in class technological know-how to find new solutions for our customers.”

This latest development is further proof that the repositioning efforts are effective and that the post-merger activities of RHI Magnesita are right on schedule. With €2.5 billion in pro-forma revenue in 2016, RHI Magnesita will be among the leading FTSE 250 industrial companies. The indexation will take effect from the start of trading on Monday, 18 December 2017.
