HeadHunter Group PLC Announces the Start of Trading of its American Depositary Shares on the Moscow Exchange

 

MOSCOW, Russia, September 25, 2020 — HeadHunter Group PLC (Nasdaq: HHR, MOEX: HHRU) (the “Company”) announced the start of trading of its American Depositary Shares (ADSs) (ticker: HHRU) on the Moscow Exchange.

 

Commenting on the event Mikhail Zhukov, CEO of HeadHunter Group, said: “We are glad to offer investors access to our securities through the Moscow Exchange with clear and convenient infrastructure, with quotation and settlement in Russian rubles.”

 

Yury Denisov, CEO of Moscow Exchange added: “Headhunter is one of the most popular and useful resources for both employers and job-seekers. Now, millions of platform users can buy shares in this leading recruitment agency using Moscow Exchange’s infrastructure.”

 

“We are pleased that new-economy companies are listing on Moscow Exchange. This helps to attract new investors to the market, and allows them to diversify their portfolios that is especially needed among growing demand for exchange trading from retail investors: 6.5 million people have already opened brokerage accounts to trade on MOEX, of whom 2.8 million have joined the Exchange this year. A secondary listing in Moscow creates additional demand for a company’s securities from Russian investors and increases liquidity.”
