Euronav listed on the NYSE
On 23 January Euronav began trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). On the occasion of its listing, Euronav was invited to ring the closing bell on 18 June 2015.
A closing bell signifies the end of a trading session on the NYSE which occurs every weekday at 4 pm EST. The CNBC broadcasts this ceremony as they cover the period up to the end of trading and review the trading of the day after the market has closed.
Five minutes before the actual closing bell, a designated group was guided to the bell podium for ‘le moment suprême’. At 4 pm sharp our CEO Paddy Rodgers rang the bell while the rest of the Euronav group enthusiastically clapped and cheered. Claiming that the entire Euronav team was glowing with pride… would even be an understatement.
