On Assignment (NASD: ASGN) announced that it will transfer the listing of its common stock from the Nasdaq to the New York Stock Exchange. The company expects to begin trading on the NYSE on Aug. 31, and On Assignment representatives will ring the opening bell on Sept. 19.
The company will continue to use its current stock symbol “ASGN.”
“On Assignment continues to expand its national and global presence in the technology, healthcare, and life sciences staffing markets through organic growth and acquisitions,” said President and CEO Peter Dameris. “Nasdaq has been a valuable partner; however, we believe trading on NYSE Euronext, the world’s largest stock exchange, will broaden our visibility and provide long-term value to our customers, employees, and shareholders.”
On Assignment ranks No. 22 on Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2012 list of largest U.S. staffing firms.
