Aon to Remain on S&P 500

NU Online News Service, March 28, 2:37 p.m. EDT

Aon Corp. will remain on the S&P 500 index following its reorganization into a newly formed public-limited company, Aon plc., and moving its headquarters from Chicago to London.

In a statement, Standard & Poor’s says that each share of Aon Corp. common stock will be exchanged for one “Class A Ordinary” share of Aon plc. on a one-for-one basis before the opening of trading on Monday, April 2.

Shareholders approved the move on March 16 by a vote of 98 percent of the shares voted.

The insurance broker says the move will not result in any job loss and Aon plans to add positions at its Chicago offices.
