Neon Equi­ty AG with suc­cessful stock mar­ket debut

Frankfurt/​Düs­sel­dorf, 16 Janu­ary 2023. Neon Equi­ty AG (NEON; ISIN: DE000A3DW408), a foun­der-mana­ged inves­tor and growth enabler, reports on its suc­cessful stock mar­ket debut. The 40,050,100 regis­tered ordi­na­ry shares wit­hout par value (no-par value shares) have been lis­ted on the Open Mar­ket of the Düs­sel­dorf Stock Exch­an­ge sin­ce Fri­day, 13 Janu­ary 2023. With a clo­sing pri­ce of EUR 11.00 per share on the first tra­ding day, the mar­ket capi­ta­li­sa­ti­on of NEON was accor­din­gly around EUR 441 mil­li­on. A first lis­ting of the shares on XETRA is also plan­ned in the near future, as well as the inclu­si­on in the Open Mar­ket seg­ment Quo­ta­ti­on Board of the Frank­furt Stock Exch­an­ge.
NEON is an equi­ty invest­ment com­pa­ny with an invest­ment focus on Euro­pean com­pa­nies in the real estate, tech­no­lo­gy, and con­sul­ting sec­tors. The focus is on high-growth com­pa­nies which have an ESG-com­pli­ant busi­ness model and a con­cre­te capi­tal mar­ket per­spec­ti­ve. NEON curr­ent­ly has a well-fil­led deal pipe­line with num­e­rous com­pa­nies in a con­cre­te invest­ment review and due dili­gence pro­cess. NEON plans to dyna­mi­cal­ly expand its invest­ment port­fo­lio during the coming quar­ters.
As an acti­ve, part­ner­ship-ori­en­ted inves­tor, NEON sup­ports the com­pa­nies in the imple­men­ta­ti­on of their fur­ther growth stra­te­gies, in par­ti­cu­lar through the plan­ning and suc­cessful con­duct of the neces­sa­ry capi­tal mar­ket tran­sac­tions. In addi­ti­on to its own co-invest­ments in this frame­work, NEON con­tri­bu­tes exten­si­ve know-how and a sus­tainable net­work of insti­tu­tio­nal inves­tors as well as pri­va­te inves­tors with capi­tal mar­ket affi­ni­ty. NEON’s track record covers a broad spec­trum from the are­as of equi­ty, debt capi­tal and toke­nisa­ti­on. Sin­ce 2015, the com­pa­ny has plan­ned, struc­tu­red and suc­cessful­ly imple­men­ted IPOs, capi­tal increa­ses, bond issues and increa­ses as well as toke­nisa­ti­ons with a volu­me of seve­ral bil­li­on euros. NEON is also curr­ent­ly pre­pa­ring IPOs for 2023.
NEON is direct­ly and indi­rect­ly majo­ri­ty owned by inves­tor and foun­der Tho­mas Olek. Around 10 per­cent of the shares in the com­pa­ny are in free float.
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.”


NEON EQUI­TY AG invests in ESG com­pli­ant com­pa­nies with high growth oppor­tu­ni­ties in future indus­tries such as AI, mobi­li­ty, nut­ri­ti­on, health and ener­gy and accom­pa­nies them in suc­cessful IPOs. In doing so, NEON EQUI­TY is one of the lea­ding pro­vi­ders in advi­sing IPOs and capi­tal mar­ket tran­sac­tions and con­nects fast-gro­­wing ESG com­pa­nies with inter­na­tio­nal insti­tu­tio­nal inves­tors. NEON EQUI­TY thus pur­sues a sus­tainable and stock mar­ket rele­vant stra­tegy and advi­ses its port­fo­lio part­ners inde­pendent­ly of banks on all capi­tal mar­ket instru­ments.
