FRANKFURT Dec 5 German power groups Innogy
and Uniper will join the MDAX index
of mid-cap shares, having recently been spun off by utilities
RWE and E.ON.
Stock exchange operator Deutsche Boerse said on
Monday they would replace hospital operator Rhoen-Klinikum
and machine tool maker DMG Mori AG, which
will move to the SDAX index.
Shares in Innogy, which bundles RWE's healthy assets --
grids, retail and renewables -- have fallen around 14 percent
since they started trading on Oct. 7.
Uniper, which E.ON split off to rid itself of ailing
generation assets, has meanwhile gained about 15 percent since
its listing in September.
The index changes take effect on Dec. 19. The next regular
index review will be held on March 3.
