Xpediator plc named runner-up in the European Small and Mid- Cap Awards 2019
Xpediator Plc is pleased to announce that it came runner up in the ‘Rising Star’ category at the annual European Small and Mid-Cap Awards which took place in Brussels on the 12th November.
Xpediator was one of 27 nominations drawn from across 12 countries, listed on ten different European stock exchanges.
The Awards, launched in 2013, were created by the European Commission to recognise some of Europe’s smaller listed companies identified through four varying categories and showcased on the night. European Issuers, who represent listed companies and the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE) who represent the stock exchanges are also co-organisers of the event.
The objective of the Awards is to promote best practices and highlight the best European Small and Mid-Sized Companies that have gained access to capital markets via an Initial Public Offering (IPO). They showcase the diversity of European markets and aim to promote stock listings, in particular targeting SMEs and growth companies. These companies are critical to accomplishing the EU’s goals of job creation, competitiveness and growth.
The European Small and Mid-Cap Awards advocate the benefits of equity financing and encourage smaller companies to consider this financing option. Equity market financing plays a key role in the creation of jobs and growth and in the overall competitiveness of a company. http://europeansmallandmidcapawards.eu/
