One of the leading online food delivery services in Europe, Takeaway has now reserved a spot in AEX-Index on Euronext. Basically, the Netherlands-based company has now been promoted from the MidKap to the AEX index of the Amsterdam stock exchange. The AEX features 25 of the largest and most actively traded companies that are listed on Euronext Amsterdam.
It is also the most widely used indicator of the Dutch stock market. The company will be included in the AEX-Index on Euronext Amsterdam effective at the start of trading on the European markets, on June 24, this year. The news comes soon after Euronext conducted its quarterly review and is based on free-float adjusted market capitalisation and liquidity.
Jitse Groen, CEO of Takeaway.com said: “Only two and a half years after our IPO, the inclusion of Takeaway.com in the main index on Euronext Amsterdam marks an important milestone for our company. It is clear for us though that we are still at the beginning of the development of our sector, and we intend to play an increasingly important role in it.”
Earlier this year, Takeaway.com raised €680M through an accelerated bookbuild and started offering news shares and convertible bonds. It also announced of successfully placing 8.35 million new ordinary shares, which represent about 19 percent of the company’s outstanding share capital.
Additionally, via an accelerated bookbuild offering, the online food delivery platform managed to raise approximately €430 million. This happened due to an issue price of €51.50 per New Share, along with the simultaneous offering of convertible bonds in the aggregate principal amount of €250 million due January 2024.
