SHW AG decides to switch to the General Standard - close orientation to the follow-up obligations of the Prime Standard

- Intensive capital market communication to continue unchanged

- SHW share still traded on the XETRA electronic trading system

Aalen, 10 November 2017. The Management Board of SHW AG today decided to file an application with Deutsche Börse AG to switch from the Prime Standard to the General Standard of the Regulated Market.

The revocation of admission to the Prime Standard will become effective at the end of a period of three months after the decision of the management of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange being published in the internet (www.deutsche-boerse.com). The revocation does not affect the admission of the shares of SHW AG to trading on the Regulated Market (General Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

With the exception of the Quarterly Statements, SHW AG will fulfil all follow-up obligations of the Prime Standard (e.g. languages for the follow-up obligations: German and English; analysts' meeting: at least once a year) in the future.

"We will continue to participate regularly in capital market conferences and roadshows in future and be available for on-site meetings. And apart from that we will make no material cutbacks to our capital markets communication," says Martin Simon, CFO of SHW AG. "Our goal is that our share is valued adequately on the capital market. To this end, we will pursue an open and intensive dialogue with all market players in future as well. We will provide relevant facts and constantly communicate the value perspectives of our company."

The shares of SHW AG will be traded on the XETRA trading system as before. "In this way continuous tradability is guaranteed at all times in the future as well," says Martin Simon.
