CNH Industrial announces voluntary delisting from Euronext Milan and single listing on the New York Stock Exchange; CNH further announces up to $1 Billion Share Buyback Program
Basildon, November 7, 2023
CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE: CNHI / MI: CNHI) announces today that its Board of Directors has approved an application to delist its ordinary shares from Euronext Milan. Such application will be filed today.
As announced on February 2, 2023, the decision to delist from Euronext Milan and concentrate its listing on NYSE was taken following a careful review of the relative trading volumes on the two exchanges. Since the spin-off in January 2022 of CNH’s On-Highway activities and the creation of Iveco Group, the majority of CNH stock trading has progressively shifted to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), revealing that the Company’s business profile and investor base fit better with a single US listing. Concentrating trading in one market should allow for increased liquidity and investor focus, while further simplifying the company profile and compliance requirements.
The Company believes that the NYSE meets all requirements provided in the Milan Stock Exchange rules applicable to CNH, i.e., that NYSE’s characteristics are equivalent to European regulated markets and it has a sufficient level of liquidity, ensuring also adequate safeguards for investors. This press release includes a summary overview of such key safeguards for investors.
Upon satisfaction of all conditions, Borsa Italiana will arrange for the delisting of CNH’s ordinary shares and will publish a notice indicating the date of effectiveness of the delisting. Delisting from Euronext Milan would take effect no earlier than 45 days after the publication by Borsa Italiana of its notice arranging for delisting. The Company is confident that single listing on the NYSE will be effective at the beginning of January 2024. Further information will be made available pursuant to the applicable regulation. Until the day of delisting, CNH’s common shares will continue to be listed also on Euronext Milan.
CNH’s Board of Directors and its Management Team are grateful to Euronext Milan for having been the Company’s listing venue for more than 10 years and are excited about the Company’s continued presence on the NYSE.
Additional practical information regarding the delisting will be published in the Investor Relations section of our website at www.cnhindustrial.com as soon as Borsa Italiana will announce its decision about the delisting application.
CNH further announces today that the Board of Directors has approved a new share buyback program (the “Program”). Under the Program the Company will repurchase from time to time up to US$1 billion worth of its common shares between November 8, 2023, and March 1, 2024. Funded by the Company’s liquidity, the Program is intended to optimize the capital structure of the Company and to assist with offsetting any potential volatility arising from the delisting of its shares on Euronext Milan.
