GESCO share 

GESCO is listed on the stock exchange out of conviction. Whatever changes and upheavals have occurred on the capital markets, we believe in the basic idea of the stock market: bringing together companies and investors for mutual benefit.

The IPO in March 1998 was therefore a central part of the corporate strategy, in order to finance the future growth of the GESCO Group. We were subsequently able to obtain additional funding for further acquisitions through increases in share capital.
