Fibre-optic broadband provider Virgin Media has confirmed its intention to be listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).
The company has submitted a report to the Financial Services Authority (FSA) outlining its plans to place shares on the exchange through a secondary listing, which will come into force from 08:00 BST on Thursday (October 1st).
Virgin Media's plans are likely to be approved by the FSA, meaning that the ticker symbol VMED will be seen on the LSE later this week.
The company's primary list of common stock will continue to be part of the Nasdaq exchange in New York.
News of the plans has come after Virgin Media recently appointed Eamonn O'Hare as its new chief financial officer.
The former Tesco finance director is to take up the role from November.
