“Today's listing of AddLife means that we’re now a stand-alone company, a defined Life Science player, in the Nordic countries,” said Kristina Willgård, CEO of AddLife AB. “It’s our opening-day on the stock exchange but AddLife has a hundred year old history as a spin-off from Bergman & Beving and Addtech. We’ll now be able to fully focus on continuous profitable growth, both organically and through acquisitions. Independent players within the Life Science sector are well-needed in order to meet the increasing market demand and the challenges that the healthcare sector is facing.”

“We welcome AddLife to our Nasdaq Stockholm main market,” said Adam Kostyál, senior vice president and head of European listings at Nasdaq. “We congratulate AddLife on its listing, and we look forward to supporting the company with the increased investor exposure that comes with a main market listing.”
