Back

Paris 14 December 2012 – NYSE Euronext (NYX) today announced the listing on NYSE Alternext in Paris of EO2, a major player in renewable energy with a focus on forest biomass.

Founded in 2006, the EO2 Group is one of France’s top contenders in wood pellets, a clean and renewable fuel made as a forestry by-product and used for boilers and wood stoves operated by individual households and collective entities.

EO2 (ticker: ALEO2) was listed through admission to trading of the 2,631,705  shares making up its capital, transferred from the Free Market to NYSE Alternext. Market capitalisation stood at around €9 million on the day of listing.

“We are delighted with EO2’s transfer to NYSE Alternext, our made-to-measure market for small and medium-sized companies,”said Marc Lefèvre, Head of European Business Development and Client Coverage Listing Europe at NYSE Euronext. “Today EO2 is entering a new stage in its relationship with the stock exchange, through a strategic choice that will give it access to more investors and a higher profile.”

Guillaume Poizat, Chairman and CEO of EO2, added: “Our move to NYSE Alternext reflects our ongoing focus on wood pellets, a market reporting annual growth of over 25% a year in the past five years. In 2012, sales of heating pellets are running well above projections. With this eco-friendly alternative to fossil fuels which is also significantly less expensive, our company and products are one of the energy market’s most efficient solutions. In a period of economic crisis, EO2 Group is thus guaranteed market growth in the years ahead, along with high visibility.”

In seven years, €2.7 billion has been raised on NYSE Alternext, half through secondary issues, by companies from countries including Belgium, Canada, China, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain, the UK and the US.
