Givaudan is a Company that through its many evolutions has a rich history, dating back to the late 18th Century. At the dawn of the 21st Century, Givaudan entered one of its most exceptional periods, when in June 2000, the Company was publicly listed on the SIX Swiss Stock Exchange. 8 June 2015 will see us complete 15 years on SIX, as a global company that is creating shared value worldwide.
Over that period, Givaudan shares have seen an increase in value of almost 255%, peaking in January of this year with shares trading at CHF 1,948.
Givaudan currently has 9,233,586 shares, with 24,584 registered shareholders as of 1 June 2015, who have enjoyed considerable cash flow returns in recent years. During this period, the Company has created over CHF 15 billion in value for shareholders in the form of dividend payments and share price appreciation.
We take this opportunity to thank our shareholders and investors for their continued confidence and trust, and are committed to continue to grow our company and deliver increased value for many years to come.
