(News Bulletin 247) – The specialist in payment solutions in the world of work will join the Parisian index on June 19.

It had been a long time since the CAC 40 had seen a newcomer, since Eurofins in September 2021.

A year and a half later, a change is finally taking place. Euronext, the operator of the Paris Stock Exchange, has announced that Edenred will join the CAC 40 as of June 19.

The specialist in payment solutions in the business world, known to the general public for its Ticket Restaurant brand, will replace Vivendi, which is penalized by its valuation, one of the lowest in the CAC 40 (9 billion euros) and a floating limited by the share of just under 30% of the Bolloré Group.

OVH leaves the SBF 120

Remember that to make its decision on entry or exit from the CAC 40, Euronext’s scientific council is largely based on trading volumes and the floating capitalization of a company. However, sectoral logics can also be taken into account.

Edenred, which in addition to meal vouchers is present in fuel cards as well as inter-company payment, has been knocking on the door of the CAC 40 for several quarters. With a good stock market performance: the value has taken 19% since January 1 and 165% over 10 years.

Apart from the CAC 40, the scientific council of Euronext has also decided to leave the cloud computing specialist OVH to replace it with the logistics specialist ID Logistics.
