Vedanta to delist American depository shares

September 24,2021

Vedanta also intends to terminate its ADS program and the corresponding deposit agreement pursuant to which the ADS program is maintained.

The company said its board has taken into account the recent low trading volume of its ADS on the NYSE and the associated costs of maintaining the listing and related obligations.

Upon delisting of its ADS program, the Company will concentrate all trading of its equity shares on the BSE Limited (“BSE”) and the National Stock Exchange of India Limited in India (NSE), Vedanta said in a statement.

The company will file a Form 25 with the SEC on or about 29 October 2021 to delist its ADSs from the NYSE. The delisting is expected to become effective ten days thereafter, at which time the ADSs of the company will no longer be listed for trading on the NYSE.
