M&A and IPOs
SECO, an Industrial IOT company, is listing its shares on the Italian Stock Exchange. The company expects to float 37.773m shares with a price range between €3.30 and €4.15 per share (valueing the company between €264.6m and €332.8m).
Reading this week
Following the Italian and European Q1 reports on VC & fundraising, it is now time to take a look at how was Q1 in the Central and Eastern European region. Spoiler: not too bad.
For perspective, this is the NVCA report about Q1 2021 in US Venture capital.
In case you missed it, Europe is drafting new regulations related to AI, trying to ban or limit its use in edge cases (e.g. surveillance). Here the European Commission website with all the details. I welcome the goal of protecting the rights of European citizens, but I am also worried that the EU might end up creating more red tape, hindering innovation, failing to protect people so much. We'll see.
