Dortmund/Frankfurt, November 24, 2023 – thyssenkrupp nucera has received an award from Deutsche Börse Group and the publishing house Weimer Media Group in the “Impact IPO” category.

This prize was awarded to a company for the first time.

“The award is both recognition and motivation for us at thyssenkrupp nucera. To be honored for the IPO shows great confidence in our technology to produce green hydrogen for the decarbonization of industry,” says Dr. Werner Ponikwar, CEO at thyssenkrupp nucera. “We will vigorously pursue our growth strategy to expand our electrolyzer capacity to drive the shift in the energy mix away from fossil fuels towards sustainable energy sources such as green hydrogen.”

A nine-member jury made up of representatives from the media and universities, as well as experts from the financial sector, selected the winner in the “Impact IPO” category from several nominated companies. Other award categories in addition to “Impact IPO” were “Outstanding IPO”, “Smallcap IPO” and “Exceptional Equity Financing”.

She also emphasized the importance of green hydrogen as the energy source of the future. Hesse's Minister President Boris Rhein (CDU) is the patron of the event.

“The IPO was a significant step for our company and our planned investments – in a challenging capital market environment. The fact that this step and its impact have been recognized by the award is further proof of the great potential of the hydrogen market – and the potential of thyssenkrupp nucera,” says Dr. Arno Pfannschmidt, CFO of thyssenkrupp nucera.
