The Tecan Share

Performance of the Tecan share in 2012

The Tecan share recorded a positive performance of 20.5 % in 2012, thereby outperforming the SPI Extra benchmark of small and medium- sized companies listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange by 6.6 %.

The Tecan share began 2012 with price gains and in March, the company reported solid results for the 2011 financial year. At the same time, delays to an important development project were announced and the outlook for 2012 was presented. Investors reacted negatively to these two events, which resulted in a fall in the share price. Between April and October, the share price remained relatively stable within the range of CHF 60 to 70. After the new CEO, David Martyr, joined the company in October 2012, the share price performed well in the final quarter against a favorable stock market environment.
