Success Stories from Issuers
The Swiss Stock Exchange can look back on a very good year for IPOs and capital raisings. Besides the successful listings of Galenica, Idorsia, Zur Rose, Landis+Gyr and Poenina, there was also some sizeable capital raising in the following years.
In the interviews, Felix Burkhard, CFO Galenica, Jean-Paul Clozel, CEO Idorsia, André Muller, CFO Idorsia, and Richard Mora, CEO Landis+Gyr, explain why they opted for a listing on the Swiss Stock Exchange or how it went. The Swiss Stock Exchange also provides companies with efficient access to capital after they have listed. Rodolfo Savitzky, CFO Lonza, talks about this.
