Devon Energy to Transfer Stock Listing to NYSE

Devon Energy announced that its board of directors has approved plans to transfer the company's common stock listing to the New York Stock Exchange.

Devon has been approved to file an application with the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and expects trading to commence on October 12, 2004. Until then, Devon will continue trading on the American Stock Exchange (AMEX). The company expects to retain DVN as its ticker symbol.

"We have had a long and successful affiliation with the AMEX since becoming a public company," said J. Larry Nichols, chairman and chief executive officer. "We now look forward to beginning our relationship with the NYSE."
