December 8, 2022 — Nasdaq (Nasdaq:NDAQ) announces that trading in the shares of Alvotech (short name ALVO) will commence today on the Nasdaq Iceland Main Market.

Alvotech is a biotech company, founded in 2013 by Robert Wessman, focusing solely on the development and manufacture of biosimilars for patients worldwide. Alvotech has formed a network of strategic commercial partnerships to provide global reach and leverage local expertise in markets that include the U.S., Europe, Japan, China, and other Asian countries and large parts of South America, Africa and the Middle East.

“Moving from the Nasdaq First North Growth Market to the Main market in Iceland is an important step for us,”said Robert Wessman, Chairman and founder of Alvotech. „By being listed on the Main market we are better equipped to attract a broader spectrum of investors, both domestically and internationally.
