Nasdaq Copenhagen welcomes Audientes A/S to Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark
Copenhagen September 18, 2020 – Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) announces that trading in the Audientes A/S share (short name: AUDNTS) starts today on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark. Audientes belongs to the Health Care sector and is the eighth company, which will be admitted to trading on Nasdaq Copenhagen in 2020 and is no. 39 on the Nasdaq Nordic market*.
Audientes A/S develops a technologically smart low-cost hearing aid primarily for the middle class in i.a. developing countries and India, as well as low-income groups in high-income countries, including the United States. Worldwide, there are over 466 million people with disabling hearing loss, including about 75 million in India and 30 million in the United States, the majority of whom do not have a sufficiently good remedy in the form of a hearing aid. This is because the existing hearing aids are too expensive and there are too few hearing clinics, especially in low- and middle-income countries, to adapt the hearing aids to the individual consumer. Audientes is founded to help these millions of people.
“The need for good quality hearing aids at an affordable price is large and global, and the market is fragmented, without actual market-leading products, which offers great opportunities for a company like Audientes. We are therefore very much looking forward to the listing, which brings us the opportunity to conquer a large international market with our self-adjusting hearing aids, and at the same time help millions of people with disabling hearing loss", says Steen Thygesen, CEO Audientes.
"We are proud to welcome Audientes to the Nasdaq First North Growth Market," says Carsten Borring, Head of Listing at Nasdaq Copenhagen. Audientes is among the series of entrepreneurial companies that by listing on Nasdaq First North Growth Market, shows the way for other tech companies that, besides raising capital, also want to take advantage of the global visibility that a listing on Nasdaq's markets provides for new companies”.
Audientes A/S has appointed Kapital Partner ApS as Certified Adviser.
