Stockholm, December 14, 2020 – Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) announces that trading in AcouSort AB’s shares (short name ACOU) commence today on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market.

“AcouSort has matured over the past years,” says AcouSort’s CEO Torsten Freltoft. “We have significantly expanded our business to an international customer base where we now are ready to reap the benefits of being listed at the Nasdaq First North Growth market. Being part of Nasdaq is an important quality stamp for our existing and future customers, collaborators and suppliers.
