The issued share capital of ASMALLWORLD AG comprises of 8'137'153 registered shares with a nominal value of CHF 1.00 per share. The opening price was CHF 12.40 per share, corresponding to a market capitalization of around CHF 101 million. An offering of the company's shares has not taken place. The shares will be listed under the "Swiss Reporting Standard" and included in the SPI®.
