SIG Combibloc, a leading provider of aseptic carton packaging solutions for the food and beverage industry, successfully priced its IPO and listed its shares on the SIX Swiss Exchange, where trading commenced on 28 September 2018. With a market capitalization of CHF 3.6 billion and a generating total gross proceeds of CHF 1.5 billion, this is considered as the largest IPO on the SIX Swiss Exchange in the last years. In connection with the IPO, SIG Combibloc Group Holdings S.A., the holding company of SIG Combibloc Group, migrated its legal seat and the place of management of the company from Luxembourg to the Canton of Schaffhausen, Switzerland by way of a cross-border relocation and thereby became a stock corporation governed by Swiss law prior to the first day of trading.

Reutter, Sandro Fehlmann, Daniel Raun, Alexander von Jeinsen, Manuela Cassano and Carlo Hunter (all Capital Markets), Urs Kägi, Roland Truffer and Annina Hammer (all Corporate), Michael Rohrer (Notary), Dieter Dubs (Listed Companies), Laura Widmer and Fanny Sutter (both Employment), Ralph Malacrida and Micha Schilling (both Financing), as well as Susanne Schreiber, Daniel Lehmann, Cyrill Diefenbacher and Hanna Brozzo (all Tax).
