Detection Technology has been included in the new Nasdaq First North 25 index launched on October 15th 2015. By launching First North 25, Nasdaq wants to highlight the growing investment opportunities on Nasdaq First North to a broader group of investors, and provide further visibility for companies included in the index.
”I am very pleased that DT has been included in the new First North 25 index among the first companies. This supports our IR targets and improves our visibility among domestic and international investors”, says President and CEO Hannu Martola.
The First North 25 index portfolio is selected through a two-step process based on market capitalization and aggregated trading turnover. The index portfolio is rebalanced twice a year. As of October 15th four Finnish companies are included in the index.
Nasdaq also introduces local First North country indexes. The indices include shares traded on the respective markets, and are designed to add further visibility for Nasdaq First North in the Nordics.
