What happened to PCW?

What happened to PCW?

Effective May 18, 2007, PCCW's ADR program has become a "Level 1" program trading under a new ticker symbol "PCCWY", and the old ticker symbol "PCW" has been delisted. In addition, PCCW ADR is no longer traded on the New York Stock Exchange, but traded on the OTC Markets Group Inc. (over-the-counter market) in the United States. The delisting was approved by the Board in March 2007, due to a number of considerations including the limited trading volume of PCCW's ADRs relative to its worldwide trading volume, and the time and cost of maintaining a listing in the United States and meeting the regulatory compliance requirements.

PCCW Limited announced that shareholders at an Extraordinary General Meeting on January 7, 2003 approved a proposal to consolidate every five PCCW shares into a single new share, effective January 8, 2003. How does this affect my old PCCW shares?

Every five issued and unissued old ordinary shares of HK$0.05 each in the capital of the Company is now worth a single new ordinary share of HK$0.25. The existing board lot of 1,000 shares for trading on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong remains unchanged. At the same time, PCCW's American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), listed on the New York Stock Exchange, have also been consolidated at the same 5:1 ratio. Each new ADR will continue to represent 10 new PCCW shares. Following the Consolidation becoming effective on January 8, 2003, the outstanding ADRs have been consolidated in order to mirror the Consolidation in the Company's home market in Hong Kong with the exchange of every five outstanding ADRs for one new ADR. Each new ADR represents ten new Shares. Details on the consolidation of the Company's ADRs were separately mailed to its registered ADR holders shortly after January 8, 2003.
