Euronext is pleased to announce that three of its issuers have been awarded at the European Small and Mid-Cap Awards 2016. The aim of this event, organized by the European Commission, the FESE and European Issuers, is to promote best practices and to encourage small- and medium-sized companies to gain access to the capital markets via an IPO.
This year’s long selection process culminated with the announcement of the prize winners during a gala dinner on Thursday 17 November 2016 at the Albert Hall in Brussels.
In the highly competitive ‘Rising Star’ category, Oncodesign, a leading innovator in cancer treatment, won the gold medal.
Bone Therapeutics, a regenerative therapy company, received the silver medal for the ‘Star of Innovation’ prize.
Lastly, Focus-Home Interactive, a company specialized in the publishing and distribution of video games, was awarded third place in the ‘International Star’ category.

This awards ceremony intends to showcase all at once financial institutions and also the companies listed on their markets. As such, Euronext was the second most decorated stock exchange at the awards ceremony.
