DONG's name change to Ørsted adopted
At the extraordinary general meeting today, DONG Energy A/S decided to change the company's name to Ørsted A/S. As a result of the name change, the company's stock symbol changes to Ørsted. The change will go into force at the commencement of trading on October 31, 2017.
"I am pleased with the shareholders' clear support to change the company's name to Ørsted. The reason for our name change is that after the extensive strategic change from black to green energy, our old name no longer suited the company. Ørsted signals our Danish roots and our vision of creating a world that rely exclusively on green energy. The new name has already been well received at home and abroad," said Thomas Thune Andersen, chairman of Ørsted.
