EUROAPI lists on Euronext Paris


  • Market capitalisation of €1.1 billion
  • 11th company listed on Euronext Paris in 2022
  • EUROAPI represents the largest Life Sciences listing in Europe in 2022 in terms of market capitalisation. EUROAPI is also the largest company in the pharmaceutical value chain to list on Euronext markets since 2012

Paris – 6 May 2022 – Euronext today congratulates EUROAPI, world leader in the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) market, on its listing on Compartment A of the regulated market in Paris (ticker code: EAPI).

EUROAPI originally formed part of the Sanofi Group, which will retain 30% of the company following the operation. EPIC Bpifrance, acting on behalf of the French State under the French Tech Sovereignty convention, has undertaken to acquire 12% of EUROAPI’s capital. EUROAPI is the world’s leading manufacturer of small molecules and the second largest manufacturer of APIs[1]. EUROAPI develops, manufactures and distributes a diversified portfolio of APIs as well as intermediates used in the formulation of medicines for human and veterinary use, both from originators and generics, through its activities “API Solutions” and “Contract Development and Manufacturing Organisation” (CDMO). The company operates six production sites in Europe and offers around 200 APIs to nearly 530 clients present in over 80 countries.

The listing of EUROAPI is part of the deployment of its strategy and its independence from Sanofi, which will remain EUROAPI’s long-term strategic partner. Listing on Euronext Paris will allow the company to reinforce its API development and manufacturing capacities in Europe, serving its customers on a global scale, in order to sustainably meet the needs of patients worldwide.

EUROAPI was listed through the admission to trading, through direct listing of the 94,026,888 shares making up its equity.

The issue price of EUROAPI shares was set at €12 per share. Market capitalisation was ca. €1.1 billion at the opening of the first trading day.

Karl Rotthier, CEO of EUROAPI, said: “This listing is an important step for EUROAPI. It aims to reinforce EUROAPI’s status as reference partner for all laboratories in the pharmaceutical and the biotechnology sectors, and to build upon its independence from Sanofi. This listing will allow EUROAPI to accelerate its strategy aimed at developing the Group’s activities as a CDMO, to reinforce its technological platforms, to leverage its presence in complex and highly differentiated APIs and to guarantee the Group’s operational efficiency. EUROAPI is convinced that it is today well positioned to capture future growth in the dynamic API market.”
