Zalando Shares Join the MDAX Index

BERLIN, JUNE 3, 2015 – Shares in Zalando SE, Europe’s leading online retailer, will join the MDAX index of German mid-cap stocks post stock market closing on June 19, 2015. This decision was announced by the Deutsche Börse AG (German Stock Exchange) today. Zalando SE listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on 1 October 2014 and gained inclusion in the SDAX index of German small-caps already last December. Membership in the MDAX means Zalando will now be traded in the German Stock Exchange’s second most important equity index.

“We’re extremely pleased that the MDAX inclusion has now become a reality so soon after our IPO. Joining the index of the 50 most important German mid-caps underlines the progress of our business and the interest in our stock”, said Rubin Ritter, member of the Zalando management board.
