本次上市股票仅面向机构投资者开放，Adyen方面表示，上市前几天股票就已经出现了多次超额认购。作为超额配股权的一部分，Index Ventures和General Atlantic等现有投资者出售了13.4％的股份。而这也是Index Ventures投资的第四个公开上市的公司，此前上市的几家创企分别是Dropbox、Zuora和iZettle。而iZettle已与上月在上市前被支付巨头PayPal公司收购。
Fintech payments giant Adyen has more than doubled its value during trading after its debut on the Amsterdam stock exchange today, as its share price rose to €503 in morning trading despite being priced at €240 at the top of a range set last week.
Adyen, which processes payments for Netflix, Facebook and Ebay, now has a market value of more than €13bn (￡11.5bn), closing the day at €462.95 - a rise of 93 per cent. Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan Securities acted as joint global coordinators and bookrunners for the offering.
The fintech firm’s listing on Amsterdam’s Euronext comes under a month after its competitor Izettle was bought out by Paypal, just before it was about to go public in Stockholm.
The listing was only open to institutional investors, which Adyen said had been oversubscribed to “multiple times” in the days preceding the sale.
As part of an overallotment option, existing investors, such as Index Ventures and General Atlantic, sold 13.4 per cent of shares. The news represents Index Ventures’ fourth IPO, after Dropbox, Zuora and iZettle.
Analysts have suggested that yesterday’s strong showing on the market for Adyen could spill into other European deals.
