HELLENIC EXCHANGE HOLDINGS S.A.: Interview with Mr. Spyros Capralos, President of the Athens Exchange and CEO of Hellenic Exchanges The new hope for the stock exchange associated with your name refers to the opportunities the President can bring to the market associated with its expansion in the neighboring countries. It is not an issue of names, yet people in certain positions do leave their mark. As already stated, our effort concentrates on restoring the lost credibility of the Athens Stock Exchange. Confidence is easily lost but gained back with a lot of effort. The measures taken aim at bringing back Greek investors in the market. Foreign investors are confident; they realize over 50% of transactions and hold more than 35% of the Athens Stock Exchange total capitalization, mainly in FTSE 20 companies where they control almost 45%. Is it possible for this trend to continue and view at some future point in time foreign investors acquiring more than 60% of FTSE20 capitalization, claiming the right of ownership of the Greek large caps? Given that all market participants, the government, the Capital Market Committee, the Stock Exchange, all listed companies, the journalists and the analysts do their job and make right decisions, foreign investors preference on Greek Stock Market will continue, as long as Greek blue chips have growth and profit potentials in southeastern Europe and the rest of the world.
