"We are overwhelmed by the interest shown in TalkPool and it provides great confidence as we enter a new phase of the company’s history,” said Erik Strömstedt, CEO of Talkpool. “The successful listing enables us to cease the opportunities for business and acquisition in the IoT and Network Services Markets, ensuring a bright future for Talkpool." 

“We were looking for SEK 10 million SEK in our IPO and got subscriptions for a block-busting ten times that value – a clear evidence of the interest in our company,” said Magnus Sparrholm, Chairman of the Board of Talkpool. “While we today celebrate our successful IPO, I hereby invite TalkPool’s new shareholders to join me in taking a long-term investment approach. TalkPool is enabling the next generation of internet that features not only people but also things that are communicating over the internet in smart ways. It will take years for our investments in IoT to become rife, but I am convinced that TalkPool will grow fast and that our IoT leadership will continue to bear fruit.”

“We welcome TalkPool to Nasdaq First North,” said Adam Kostyál, senior vice president and head of European listings at Nasdaq. “First North continues to attract a significant number of innovative growth companies, and we look forward to supporting TalkPool for many years to come.”  

TalkPool AG has appointed Remium Nordic AB as the Certified Adviser.
