Associated Banc-Corp in Green Bay, Wis., is planning to join the New York Stock Exchange.

The $26 billion-asset company said in a press release Wednesday that it has started transferring the listing of its common stock to the NYSE from the Nasdaq.

Associated said expects to begin trading on the new exchange on Dec. 23, under the stock symbol "ASB." The company's warrants, expiring on November 2018, will trade on under the stock symbol "ASBW."

"We are pleased to join many of the top U.S. banks which currently trade on the NYSE," Philip Flynn, Associated's president and chief executive, said in the release. "We look forward to the NYSE providing us support and visibility for our existing and prospective shareholders."

Associated will continue trading on the Nasdaq until the transfer is completed.
