Record Year for Listings on Nasdaq’s Nordic Markets

 
 
  • 115 new listings across the Nordics in 2017 beat previous record from 2015
  • Number of listed companies at Nasdaq Stockholm Main Market at all-time high
  • Nasdaq First North passed 300 listed companies

Nasdaq Nordic welcomed 115 new listings to its markets* in 2017, raising 3.8 billion EUR in capital. This surpassed the previous record of 97 new listings in 2015. A majority of new listings (79 companies/69 percent) were on Nasdaq First North .

“The Nordic region has maintained its position as Europe’s leading listing hub for SMEs through Nasdaq First North, which is a liquid market for early stage companies to grow both financially and organically,” said Lauri Rosendahl, President of Nasdaq Nordic and Nasdaq Stockholm. “SMEs employ roughly two in every three people across the EU and contribute significantly to economic growth. Maintaining a strong Nordic ecosystem for IPOs, where these companies get more efficient access to financing and capital, is one of Nasdaq’s top priorities.”

A number of other milestones were also achieved in 2017, including:

  • The Nasdaq Stockholm Main Market is currently at an all-time high in terms of total number of listed companies with 321, exceeding the previous record of 318 listed companies set back in 2001.
  • For the first time Nasdaq First North reached 300+ listed companies across the Nordics in October (current number of listed companies: 318).
  • The 60th listed company completed a switch from Nasdaq First North to the Main Market since Nasdaq’s European market for smaller, growth-oriented companies launched in 2006.

“While Finland and Sweden continue to attract the majority of all Nordic listings, it has been exciting to see an increased interest also from Danish companies this year, in particular in Nasdaq First North,” said Adam Kostyál, SVP & Head of European Listings, Nasdaq. “The IPO climate is closely linked to macro economic events and based on our pipeline of companies for next year we expect a continued strong activity for Nordic IPOs during the first half of 2018, as long as the current environment remains resilient.”
