Exxaro approved to list on A2X

Exxaro Resources Ltd (share code: EXX) has been approved for a secondary listing on A2X Markets on Thursday, 2 April 2020.

Exxaro CEO Mxolisi Mgojo said, “Mining still plays a significant role in the economy of our nation. Our listing on A2X supports our commitment to investors and the South African marketplace. At Exxaro we believe that one of the keys to remaining relevant is to incorporate emerging technologies into our business operations and our listing on A2X is an example of this. A2X is leveraging technology in an effort to reduce trading costs which will lead to cost savings for Exxaro investors.”
