Euronext, the pan-European exchange in the Eurozone, has been busy these days. After revealing its determination to acquire Oslo Børs VPS, the exchange announced the successful migration of the 53 companies currently listed on Euronext Dublin to Euronext’s proprietary trading platform, Optiq.
The transition completes the equity migration from the Irish Stock Exchange plc to Euronext Dublin.
Companies listed on Euronext Dublin now join the 1,300 listed issuers, together with a combined market capitalisation of over €3.4 trillion, and have access to the online Connect portal which gives them access to their trading data, and corporate services such as Investor Relations Manager, My Share Price Live, Skope, and Company Webcast Solutions.
Daryl Byrne, CEO of Euronext Dublin and Head of Debt & Funds Listing and ETFs, commented:
This is a fantastic day for Euronext Dublin. We are excited to extend the benefits of the Euronext model to all of our listed companies and trading members. Irish listed companies can now enjoy access to deeper and broader pools of international capital, enhanced corporate services and visibility as part of this single pan-European orderbook alongside their European peers. We are now in a stronger position to offer more listing solutions to scaling Irish companies looking to access permanent capital through a listing on Euronext which has nearly 1,000 listed SMEs and is the number one listing venue for technology SMEs in continental Europe. We look forward to continuing to work with our listed companies and the Irish ecosystem to unlock the growth and opportunities that participating in a single, pan-European exchange offers.
Stéphane Boujnah, CEO and Chairman of the Managing Board of Euronext, added:
As the only pan-European exchange operator and liquidity pool, Euronext now provides listed companies and trading members in Ireland with leading-edge technology, a seamless way to interact and break down barriers to capital and growth, for the benefit of financing the real economy.This is a key milestone in the integration roadmap of Euronext Dublin as they will now be able to leverage the full power of Euronext’s proprietary trading platform, Optiq, and the unique features that come with it. All of this within eleven months after the closing of the acquisition and seven months after the introduction of Optiq to all our issuers. Working hand in hand with the Irish financial and business community, we are very proud of this achievement.
