Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, Oslo, Milan, Paris – 30 December 2022 – Euronext, the leading pan-European market infrastructure, confirmed the attractiveness of its primary markets activity in 2022, remaining the leading venue for equity listing in Europe and debt listing worldwide.

In 2022, Euronext welcomed 83 new equity listings – half of which were carried out by Tech companies – representing an aggregated market capitalisation at listing of €23 billion, and raising €3.8 billion.
In June 2022, Euronext launched the Euronext Tech Leaders segment, dedicated to high-growth and leading Tech companies, with key partners active in private and public equity markets. Since the launch of the initiative, Euronext has welcomed four new Euronext Tech Leaders to its markets, bringing the total for the segment to 110+ issuers, with an aggregated market capitalisation of €0.8 trillion as of 29 December 2022. This initiative further strengthens Euronext’s Tech ecosystem of 700+ listed Tech companies, 660+ private companies that are alumni of its pre-IPO programmes and a large base of international investors financing all types of Tech company growth profiles.
Euronext remains the European equity listing venue of reference, being home to nearly 400 large-capitalisation issuers1 and 1,500+ SME issuers, and continues to attract leading companies across all industries and geographies.
In 2022, large-capitalisation companies again took advantage of the wide range of listing options available on Euronext markets. Notably, Vår Energi (€774m raised, €6.9bn of market capitalisation at listing) - the most valuable oil exploration and production company to conduct an IPO globally in the past 10 years, Technoprobe (€713 million raised, €3.4 billion of equity value at listing2), and Industrie De Nora (€480 million raised, €2.7 billion of equity value at listing3) chose the traditional IPO route, Technicolor Creative Studios (€1.1 billion of market capitalisation at listing) and DEME (€2.4 billion of market capitalisation at listing) spun off from their parent companies, while FL Entertainment (€4.5 billion of market capitalisation at listing) and Deezer (€1.0 billion of market capitalisation at listing) carried out business combinations with SPACs listed on Euronext.
This year Euronext introduced a new listing framework in Italy, which is harmonised with Group and global standards to simplify access to financing on its venues for both local and international issuers.
The Euronext debt listing business has also grown in 2022, reinforcing its worldwide leadership position:

Euronext Corporate Services, Euronext’s suite of digital and corporate solutions, has also grown significantly with more than 450+ new clients added in 2022, supported by the acceleration in digitalisation trends. Euronext Corporate Services now counts over 4,500 clients across 30 countries.
