Logistics real estate company confirms expansion in the Netherlands with listing on Euronext Amsterdam

Amsterdam, 18 November 2015 – Today Euronext Amsterdam welcomes the logistics real estate company WDP (ticker symbol: WDP), a market leader in the Benelux.

WDP has a growing share of the Netherlands’ region in the company’s property portfolio, which today has the same weight as WDP's historical home market of Belgium. Its strong property portfolio in the Dutch market includes warehouses for wehkamp, Action and Kuehne + Nagel. This listing on Euronext Amsterdam strengthens the company’s profile and visibility on the Dutch property market and among Dutch investors.

WDP’s new listing is in addition to its listing in its home market on Euronext Brussels, since 1999.

“The success and growth of WDP in the Netherlands could only be achieved through and with our Dutch clients. And we want to thank them sincerely for that”, according to CEO Joost Uwents. “WDP is now no longer a purely Belgian but a real Benelux company, which is as active in the Netherlands as in Belgium. In both core markets, therefore, there is no lack of growth ambitions.”

Maurice van Tilburg, CEO of Euronext Amsterdam said: “It’s great to welcome WDP, an international player in the logistics property market, to Euronext Amsterdam. Following the company’s strong and increasing activities in the Netherlands, this dual listing provides the company with enhanced visibility in the Dutch market and a large and diverse pool of investors. We’re delighted to facilitate and support WDP’s further expansion and development in the Netherlands.”

To celebrate the listing, Tony De Pauw and Joost Uwents, CEO’s of WDP, sounded the gong in Amsterdam to open trading on Euronext’s markets.
