Infosys, a global leader in consulting and technology, today announced that it will be transferring the listing of its American Depositary Shares (ADS) to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) from the NASDAQ Global Select Market (NASDAQ). The company is also seeking to list its ADS on the Paris and London exchanges of NYSE Euronext.
Infosys ADS will begin trading on the NYSE Euronext markets in the U.S. under the ticker symbol 'INFY' on December 12, 2012. Until the transfer is complete, Infosys ADS will continue to trade in the U.S. under the ticker symbol 'INFY' on the NASDAQ.
