Thomas Olek, CEO and major shareholder of Neon Equity AG: "We are pleased that NEON is among the pioneers in IPOs in 2023. The move to the stock market is only logical for us, because after all 'capital market' is part of our corporate DNA. We already have an attractive portfolio, which we intend to expand further. In doing so, we see ourselves as partners on an equal footing with the investees. In accompanying their further growth, I would like to support the companies as an entrepreneur. In doing so, NEON can draw on a strong transaction experienced team, and, of course, NEON also invests itself in corporate actions, thus demonstrating a convincing commitment in addition to its advisory services."
