Analytik Jena AG is leaving the stock exchange after almost 15 years. The shares of the Jena-based manufacturer of analytical measuring technology and life science products will no longer be listed on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange after today.

“We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to our loyal shareholders for their constructive backing in recent years. They were a great support to us,” said Klaus Berka, Chief Executive Officer of Analytik Jena AG.

Following the acquisition of the majority of shares of Analytik Jena AG in 2013, the Swiss Endress+Hauser Group has continued to increase its shares and now holds more than 85.0% of the share capital and voting rights of Analytik Jena. “This shareholder structure means that Analytik Jena AG does not have to be listed on the stock exchange anymore. In particular, we no longer rely on the possibility of raising capital on the stock exchange given the secured financing by our non-listed major shareholder,” Berka explained.

The listing of the shares for over-the-counter trading on the Stuttgart, Munich, Hanover, Düsseldorf, Berlin/Bremen, and Hamburg exchanges is not affected by the delisting of the shares from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. However, it cannot be ruled out that over-the-counter trading will also be discontinued on the other stock exchanges as a result of revoking the admission of the shares to the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

On July 3, 2000, the shares of Analytik Jena AG, which still had 210 employees at that time, were traded for the first time on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange’s “Neuer Markt” securities exchange. At that time, the Company placed a total of 1.0 million shares at a price of EUR 24.0 through a capital increase. With this step, the Company managed to obtain vital liquidity reserves to support global growth and the expansion of sales structures.
