We are proud to announce this milestone in the company’s development and believe the NYSE ‘s advanced trading platform will best serve the long-term interests of our current and future shareholders.”

"KMG Chemicals will be a welcome and valued addition to the NYSE listed company community," said Scott R. Cutler, EVP and Co-Head of U.S. Listings and Cash Execution, NYSE Euronext. "A leader in the manufacture, formulation and distribution of specialty chemicals, KMG Chemicals is focused on growth, innovation and the customer. We look forward to a lasting partnership with the company and its shareholders."
