ZURICH, Switzerland — ABB announces that Accelleron Industries AG (formerly ABB Turbocharging), a global leader in high-power turbochargers for mission-critical applications, has been admitted to start trading on SIX Swiss Exchange in Zurich under the ticker symbol “ACLN”, marking the completion of Accelleron’s spin-off from ABB. The listing follows ABB shareholders’ approval of the spin-off at its Extraordinary General Meeting, held on September 7, 2022. ABB has distributed the Accelleron shares on a pro rata basis, as a dividend in kind, with 1 Accelleron share for 20 ABB Ltd shares held.
The spin-off is part of ABB’s portfolio management strategy to focus its efforts on growing global megatrends in electrification and automation, while at the same time allowing Accelleron to grow with increased flexibility and independence as a stand-alone listed company.
Björn Rosengren, Chief Executive Officer of ABB, said: “The completion of this spin-off marks another important step for ABB’s strategy of active portfolio management as we continue to focus on our leadership positions in electrification and automation, while still allowing our shareholders to participate in the continued success of the Accelleron business.
