The two North American brewers Molson and Adolph Coors yesterday said that following shareholder approval of their proposed merger, they will apply to list the Class A and Class B shares of Molson Coors Brewing Company on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

This listing would be in addition to the previously announced listing of Class A and Class B shares on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the listing of exchangeable shares on the TSX.

"Following numerous meetings with investors held in Canada this week, the companies have determined that there is significant demand for Molson Coors Brewing Company to pursue a dual listing of its primary shares and we will move in that direction," explained Daniel J. O'Neill, President and CEO of Molson.
