Brice Chambard, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Obiz, stated: “Just over 10 years after the creation of Obiz, we are proud and happy to announce the successful IPO of the first GoodTech© on the Euronext Growth® market in Paris. On this occasion, we want to warmly thank the French and European institutional investors, as well as the thousands of individual shareholders, for their trust in Obiz’s development. This capital increase will allow us to amplify the success of our virtuous model of ethical and profitable growth, through the acceleration of our organic development but also through external growth transactions. Our ambition is for Obiz to become the benchmark ethical affinity platform for the relationship marketing market, in France and in Europe. This IPO operation is the result of outstanding teamwork. The operation code name was ‘RDP’, like the special forces regiment in the French army (the 13th Régiment des Dragons Parachutistes, or 13th RDP), and the outcome is worthy of the 13th RDP’s motto ‘beyond the possible’. As the saying goes, ‘none of us alone is as worthy as all of us put together’.”
