Sears Will Move to Nasdaq After Merger

Share this article:
Sears, Roebuck & Co. will switch its listing from the New York Stock Exchange to the Nasdaq Stock Market after its purchase by Kmart Holding Corp., according to reports yesterday.


Hoffman Estates, IL-based Sears has been listed on the NYSE since 1910. The company said in a filing this week with the Securities and Exchange Commission that the move will occur once its merger with Troy, MI-based Kmart is complete.


A source familiar with the discussions said the NYSE and Nasdaq competed fiercely for the listing, according to the reports.
