Within the framework of the ‘European Small and Mid-Cap Awards’, which took place at the Bilbao Stock Exchange on 14th November, Axon was one of the companies selected as a finalist. The nomination was in the International Star Category, which recognises outstanding achievement in sales growth, profit and market share on a global scale.
This is a highly prestigious event which recognises the success of European companies among all the European Alternative Stock Exchanges. The event is a part of the Commission’s annual SME Assembly, which is organised by prestigious organisations such as FESE (Federation of European Securities Exchanges), EuropeanIssuers (the voice of EU quoted companies) and the European Commission.
Since Axon’s IPO in July 2022, it has achieved the following milestones:
- The first distribution of dividends, which amounted to 0.64 euros per share, corresponding to a yield of almost 4%
- A first share plan to give access to career partners.
- An increase in the participation of these same partners, who acquired 1.8% of the company at a valuation that represents a premium of 4.8% over the current share price.
These accomplishments culminate in the recognition received, enabling the company to continue on the path of sustainable growth, diversification of projects and investment strategies, and continuous improvement of the organisation.
Francisco Velázquez, Chairman and Managing Partner, Javier Martinez de Irujo, CFO and Pablo Grande, Investor Relations, were in charge of collecting the valuable award.
