Wärtsilä celebrating 100 years as a stock-listed company

Old Wärtsilä stock certificates

Wärtsilä went public 100 years ago on 1 September 1915. The market in which Wärtsilä operated was different from today's, as was Wärtsilä’s offering. During its 100 stock-listed years, Wärtsilä has grown from a diversified Finnish enterprise to a global technology leader, which shapes the marine and energy markets.

On 1 September 2015 Nasdaq Helsinki invited Wärtsilä to celebrate its 100 year journey as a stock-listed company. To celebrate this milestone, Wärtsilä was honoured to ring the closing bell of Nasdaq Helsinki together with Fiskars, Nokia and UPM-Kymmene. The closing bell ringing was arranged in connection with Nasdaq Helsinki’s Open House 2015 event held in Helsinki, Finland. The event attracted close to 500 Finnish private investors.

Wärtsilä’s listing was acknowledged also in Nasdaq Tower located in Times Square
