Perrigo to transfer stock to NYSE

ALLEGAN, Mich. (AP) -- Perrigo Co., a maker of over-the-counter drugs, said Thursday that it is transferring its stock listing to the New York Stock Exchange from the Nasdaq.

The company said it expects to start trading on the NYSE on June 6 under its current stock symbol, "PRGO." It will keep trading on the Nasdaq until the transfer takes place.

"We are looking forward to listing on the NYSE as this change will provide increased visibility and enhanced services that will benefit our shareholders," Chairman and CEO Joseph C. Papa said in a statement.

Perrigo's shares fell 89 cents to $117.18 in morning trading.
