"First North is the right place for a growth company to get a feel for the capital markets. Taaleri has been three years on the First North marketplace. In that time, we have doubled in size. It’s now time to advance to the main list, which is the right place for a company of our stature,” said Taaleri Plc's CEO Juhani Elomaa.
“We are more than excited to welcome Taaleri to Nasdaq Helsinki main market as the first company transferring from First North Finland. We look forward to supporting Taaleri in all the stages of their growth, and are happy to provide them with the increased visibility as well as investor awareness that come with a listing on the main market”, said Henrik Husman, President of Nasdaq Helsinki.
Adam Kostyál, Senior Vice President and Head of European listings at Nasdaq said: “We are very pleased to see Taaleri Plc transfer to the main market. The example set by Taaleri demonstrates that the concept of First North offering a stepping stone to the main market also works for the Finnish companies that are willing and able to grow.”
