Trading bell heralds third IPO in 2014 already

With an opening price of CHF 67, SFS is now listed on SIX Swiss Exchange and so is able to tap into the international capital market.

With the IPO of SFS (SFSN), the Swiss Stock Exchange has gained one of the leading companies worldwide for mechanical fastening systems and precision formed components. It supplies various markets, including the automotive, construction, construction supply, electrical, electronic, aerospace and medical technology industries. At the start of trading, the price of the listed shares stood at CHF 67, which corresponds to a total market capitalization of CHF 2.5 billion. SFS is listed in the International Reporting Standard and has been included in the SPI®.

Broader shareholder base

"Through the IPO, SFS Group is seeking to enhance its growth, broaden its shareholder base and secure a sustainable long-term future for the company as an independent entity", explains Heinrich Spoerry, Executive Chairman of the Board and CEO of SFS Group. "The company is well prepared for this step. For some years already, its business performance, accounting transparency and corporate governance standards have met the requirements of a listed company. I look forward to the additional growth opportunities that today's listing on SIX Swiss Exchange will enable."

Gateway to the capital market

A listing on SIX Swiss Exchange provides companies with access to strongly capitalized Swiss and international investors. "SFS is the third company this year choosing to float on SIX Swiss Exchange in order to realize its growth plans", says Marco Estermann, Head of Issuer Relations. "We are supporting these plans with an efficient capital raising process and various services, such as individual support in the field of investor relations." Earlier this year, the Thurgauer Kantonalbank and Bravofly Rumbo Group have successfully joined the Swiss exchange.
