Today, we marked a significant milestone in Cint’s 23-year history when we rang the Nasdaq bell and became a public company on the Nasdaq Stockholm stock exchange. Like many events this year, our listing ceremony was a combination of deft timing and technology, as we synced up from locations around the world via Zoom for the count down and the official ringing of the bell at 9:00 am CET. To further mark the occasion, the Cint logo lit up the iconic Nasdaq Tower at Times Square in New York as we joined the coveted Nasdaq family of companies.
We have taken significant steps this month leading up to the exciting events of today, 19 February, which marks the “first day” in the next chapter of growth for Cint. On 1 February, we announced our intention to float (ITF) on our website and on 10 February, we published our full prospectus in Sweden. Since then, the interest from Swedish and international institutional investors has been resounding. According to the di.se, a leading Swedish financial site, when Cint IPO order books opened, the offering was fully subscribed in under one minute. This is the highest price range at five times the highest rate ever, in just one day. Today, we proudly welcome almost 44,000 new shareholders to the Cint family.

A history of consumer insights innovation
Back in 1998, our founder Bo Mattsson started Cint to give consumers an opportunity to express their opinion on products and services in a fast and cost-efficient way. He believed that listening to consumers was paramount for companies and brands. By implementing this listening process in a digital platform, Bo and the early Cint team enabled us to serve our customers and become the growth-driven company we are today.
This idea of digitally facilitating better ways for companies to gather consumer insights has always been a central focus for Cint. Our philosophy centres around the belief that insights will drive smarter decision-making, and ultimately help the world build better products and services.
An ongoing commitment to this thinking, and the entrepreneurial culture we foster at Cint, has made us a global software leader in digital insights gathering. In addition, our business model has allowed us to thrive in a market that is undergoing massive digital transformation and, most recently, find success even in a global environment that has been disrupted by the pandemic. While we have experienced steady growth over the years, the growth of the last five-year period has been remarkable.
Today, we are proud to host the world’s largest consumer network for digital survey-based research on the Cint platform, with 144+ million respondents in 130+ countries, and help over 2,500+ B2B companies gather high-quality insights at speed and scale.
A future of continued growth and value delivery
The values and vision which have enriched our past will most certainly influence the exciting future we have in store at Cint. Our unwavering commitment to innovation in the digital insights space is reflected in this new stage of growth and reinforces our ongoing promise to deliver value for our customers.
Our success so far is the result of the collective effort of many. The hard work, dedication, and passion of our employees is the true foundation of Cint’s success. The trust and commitment of our customers and partners have helped make our journey possible. The belief and vision of our board members, past and present owners – especially Nordic Capital for believing in our vision – have guided us to this exciting point in our history.
As we invite new shareholders to take part in the Cint journey, we are excited to continue our decades-long path of growth, collaboration, and innovation. The best is yet to come.
