Kevin Barry, CEO of Mincon, speaking at the company’s market launch at the ISE, said “Floating on a public market is a significant milestone for Mincon. By listing on the Irish Stock Exchange, Mincon will be able to source international capital to fund the next phase of its expansion. We operate in a global marketplace, having a stock exchange listing also enhances our reputation with our international customers.”

Deirdre Somers, Chief Executive of the ISE, added “Mincon is a mature export-orientated Irish business which has grown through the development of its manufacturing, distribution and client base internationally. We are delighted to see a company like Mincon use the public market as a means to raise international capital. It demonstrates that the ISE is a place for established and emerging Irish companies to scale their business. A listing on the ISE complements Mincon’s global focus and will raise its profile among the international investor and broking community.”
