From Jubilation! Solutia Emerges From Bankruptcy, you know the good news.
The next step is being relisted on the New York Stock Exchange...
Which we officially celebrated today - Monday, March 17, 2008 at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time - as Solutia took part in the Opening Bell Ringing Ceremony at the New York Stock Exchange.
Very cool to witness it via live NYSE webcast [you may experience it via recorded webcast] and to see our new stock symbol - SOA.
The two were chosen via random drawing. Essentially, all U.S. based employees were invited to participate. 1,709 employees expressed interest and of the two chosen, I know one: David Montgomery, Engineering Fellow, from our plant in Decatur, Alabama.
[By the way, I discovered via Google that David Montgomery did a webcast in 2000 on DeltaV success stories and authored this article on Company-Wide Asset Management. Way cool, David!]
The second, Jeff Leandro is Environmental Coordinator at our Indian Orchard site in Springfield, Massachusetts.
What a great way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
