History of the AGRANA share

AGRANA is listed in the Prime Market segment of the Vienna Stock Exchange and is also quoted in the VÖNIX, the Austrian Sustainability Index. This equity index comprises those exchange-traded Austrian companies which are leading in social and environmental performance. Furthermore, AGRANA shares are listed in Frankfurt's Präsenzhandel segment as well as in Stuttgart's and Berlin's Freiverkehr segment.

 

1991

AGRANA went public.

2002

Since 2002 the shares of AGRANA, the international company specialising in SUGAR, STARCH and FRUIT, are listed in the Prime Market segment of the Vienna stock exchange. To be included in that segment, issuers must maintain higher standards of transparency, share quality and disclosure than those laid down by Austria's stock exchange act.

 

The value of the AGRANA share has increased stately over the years. That has been a result of AGRANA's listing in the Prime Market segment (since January 1, 2002) following the transformation of AGRANA's preference shares into ordinary shares, the growth potential of Eastern Europe that became apparent to many as EU enlargement approached, and the group's diversification into its new Fruit Juice Concentrates and Fruit Preparations segment.

2005

AGRANA successfully placed 3.175 million new shares in February 2005; so, it increased the number of issued shares to 14.202 million. The issue price was set at EUR 72 per share.

2017

In February 2017 AGRANA successfully placed in another capital increase 1,402,204 new shares at a subscription and offer price of EUR 100. The gross proceeds of this capital increase came to roughly EUR 142 million and serve to finance further profitable growth. As a result of the issuance of a total of 1,420,204 new AGRANA shares and the concurrent secondary offer of 500,000 existing AGRANA shares previously held directly by Südzucker AG, free float increased to approximately 18.9%. The aggregate gross volume of the transaction amounts to approximately EUR 192 million.

2018

At the 31st ordinary AGM of AGRANA Beteiligungs-AG on 6 July 2018 a resolution was passed pertaining to a 1:4 share split. The corresponding amendment to the articles of association in the register of companies was made on 24 July 2018. The change to the listing at the Vienna Stock Excahnge (start of trading in the new ISIN) took place on 27 July 2018.

After an absence of eleven years, AGRANA shares were again listed on the ATX index between 18 September 2017 and 19 March 2018. The ATX lists the shares of the 20 most heavily traded companies on the Austrian Stock Exchange.
