OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Union Pacific virtually rang the Closing Bell in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the railroad's New York Stock Exchange listing today.

"It is an honor to celebrate this historic milestone and the company's ascension to the longest-listed transportation company and largest railroad traded on the New York Stock Exchange with the financial community and our dedicated employees," said Union Pacific Chairman, President and CEO Lance Fritz, who led the virtual ringing. "Their relentless focus on our customers is transforming Union Pacific more than 150 years after President Abraham Lincoln founded our company."

The ingenuity of its employees helped transform Union Pacific's network by streamlining operations and focusing on safe, efficient and reliable rail service that customers can count on. Operating changes implemented over the last two years improved shipment arrival times for customers, contributing to Union Pacific's record-high stock price achievement in 2020. Initially trading on the New York Stock Exchange at less than $27 per share, Union Pacific has had seven stock splits and paid dividends on common stock for 121 consecutive years.

As a company that has operated for more than a century and a half, sustainability is built into the fabric of Union Pacific's performance. Its continuous circle of innovation helps the company withstand the test of time and become stronger after emerging from unforeseen challenges. Union Pacific is ready to support America's post-COVID 19 comeback with reliable rail service that will help current and future customers grow.
