NEWPORT NEWS- Ferguson plc, a leading distributor of plumbing and heating products, is now listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

Ferguson added the U.S. listing of its ordinary shares on March 8. The company will keep its premium listing on the London Stock Exchange as well as its inclusion in the FTSE 100 index. Its ordinary shares will trade on both exchanges under the ticker symbol: FERG.

“The additional U.S. listing is an important milestone,” said Geoff Drabble, chairman of Ferguson plc.

Ferguson’s board expects that over time the additional U.S. listing will lead to more U.S. share ownership. The board plans to hold a shareholder vote to change the primary listing to the U.S. at a later date.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
