CHC Helicopter Corp. hit the Big Apple October 11 when its class-A subordinate voting shares began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “FLI.” Making a characteristically high-profile splash in the concrete canyons of lower Manhattan, CHC CEO Craig Dobbin, flanked by other company officers, rang the official opening bell to start trading on the stock exchange floor at 9:30 a.m. while outside, in front of the pillared bastion of capitalism, stood a red-white-and-blue Eurocopter EC 355 TwinStar, resplendent in CHC livery. The CHC executive team includes (left to right) David Dobbin, vice president; Jo Mark Zurel, CFO; CEO Dobbin; Sylvain Allard, president; Noel Clarke, senior v-p; and Craig C. Dobbin, vice president. A few days later, CHC stock was selling at $18.85 a share, well above its previous 52-week low (as traded on other exchanges) of $8.51.
