Mantex listed on Nasdaq First North

Max Gerger, with staff, rings the bell.

Today, Mantex started trading on NASDAQ First North, and it was proud CEO who traditionally rang the bell to open the stock market.

Why do you ring the bell?

The tradition of ringing the bell, at the opening and closing of the market, dates back to the 1870s. The stock exchange in New York went over to continuous trading, and needed a signal that everyone could hear. Before then, most trades took place between two people, but now the exchange wanted a system where as many as possible could buy and sell shares simultaneously in a common marketplace.

Even though the stockbrokers have left the trading floor, and most trading now happens in computers, the tradition of ringing the bell has survived.

A big thanks!

– “This is an exciting day for Mantex, and I would like to send a big thank you to all who made this possible; To all the new investors who believe in our products, our main owners, partners and not least all our employees who worked so hard to get everything in place. Now it is up to us to live up to the trust you have shown us! “, said a very happy Max Gerger, Mantex CEO.
