PARIS, April 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Spanish technology company Virtualware has debuted today on the Paris stock exchange with a valuation of more than 27 million euros and at a price of six euros per share.
The shares of the company, founded in 2004, which today develops virtual reality solutions for major industrial, educational and healthcare conglomerates, will now be listed on the Access segment of Euronext Paris.
The listing ceremony took place this morning at an event held at the Euronext building in La Defense in Paris, and was presided by the company’s two founders, CEO Unai Extremo and CTO Sergio Barrera.
