With five IPOs since the beginning of the year, biotech and medtech companies are enjoying a robust profile in NYSE Euronext’s European markets.

The Strategic Planning Committee presented its recommendations beginning of July during the traditional Paris Europlace event. Made up of personalities known for their expert role as intermediaries, investors or issuers, the committee is designed to advise NYSE Euronext on its SME strategy. Its conclusions are “ambitious and innovative,” says Fabrice Demarigny, attorney with Marccus Partners, Head of Capital Market Activities for the Mazars group and Chairman of the Strategic Planning Committee.
