Cable firm Ziggo replaces Douwe Egberts coffee in blue chip index

Cable company Ziggo will join Amsterdam’s blue-chip AEX index on September 23, following coffee firm Douwe Egberts’ €7.5bn takeover by German investment house Joh A Benchiser.

Ziggo is currently in the AMX midcap index.

The German group has managed to buy at least 90% of DE Masterblenders shares, forcing its delisting under stock exchange rules, Nos television said.

The coffee and tea group was listed in June 2012 and promoted to the AEX just a year ago.
