Aussie Apparel Group Ltd. announced Tuesday that NASDAQ changed its new symbol from AAPR to “AASI.” The change was due to an inadvertent error at NASDAQ whereby the AAPR symbol just issued to the company apparently conflicts with the symbol of a NYSE company.

The new symbol AASI — issued today by NASDAQ will be effective at the opening of business on Wednesday, May 28, 2003. The company apologizes for any confusion and/or inconvenience this may have caused to it shareholders.
