PIA goes public at the Shanghai Stock Exchange
This morning, our parent company Ningbo PIA Automation Holding Corp. was listed at the Shanghai Stock Exchange STAR Market and officially registered on the Science and Technology Innovation Board.
"This is an exciting day for all of us," comments Co-CEO Thomas Ernst on the IPO. "We are pleased to now be listed on the stock exchange in China with some of the world's best-known brands, thus underlining our leading market position in the automation sector. At the same time, we focus on the future: with the IPO, we are creating the foundation to continue our growth and to further drive the automation and digitalization of our industry."
PIA is allocating around 25% of its shares to the capital market, so there is no change in the basic ownership resulting from the IPO. Jeff Wang (founder of Joyson Group) remains majority owner of the company.
