Update on Stoxx and FTSE Index families
On July 5th, 2021 Stoxx and FTSE each issued a press release on their decision to revise Natixis’ weighting in their respective Index families downwards, effective July 8th, 2021. This decision was notably triggered by the significant reduction in Natixis’ free float, by more than half, since the opening of the offer (from ~29.4% to ~13.3% as at July 1st).
As previously communicated in Natixis’ press release dated July 5th, 2021 and June 22nd, 2021, MSCI and Euronext had already announced the exclusion of Natixis from their Index families during or following the conclusion of the simplified tender offer launched by Groupe BPCE on all Natixis outstanding shares. Other index providers are also in the course of assessing the situation and Natixis will update investors when relevant.
