Wolters Kluwer marks 50 years of Euronext Amsterdam listing
By Gloria Methri
Wolters Kluwer is opening its trading session on Euronext Amsterdam – the world’s oldest stock exchange – with the sounding of the ceremonial gong. The ceremony celebrates the company’s 50th year of listing on the Exchange and Nancy McKinstry’s 20th year as Wolters Kluwer CEO and Chair of the Board.
CEO McKinstry has been credited with Wolters Kluwer’s digital transformation for two decades. Only eight other companies in the S&P Global 1200 have a CEO with at least 20 years of continuous service at the same company. McKinstry is also the longest-serving female CEO of a publicly traded Dutch company.
In these 20 years, the technology firm has transformed through print, online, and digital, towards its current day position as an expert solutions company. Under McKinstry’s leadership, the company has embedded a relentless drive for technology innovation within its culture. Approximately 50% of Wolters Kluwer’s digital revenues are derived from solutions that leverage Artificial Intelligence.
Wolters Kluwer stock debuted for listing on what is now Euronext Amsterdam on June 13, 1973*. Today, the company has revenues of €5.5 billion (as of year-end 2022), approximately 20,900 employees globally, and serves customers in more than 180 countries.
Wolters Kluwer’s stock market listing dates to 1973, as one of the company’s legal predecessors, Informatie en Communicatie Unie (ICU), made its debut on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange, now Euronext Amsterdam, on June 13. The company was renamed Wolters Samsom Groep in 1983 and merged with Kluwer in 1987 to become Wolters Kluwer. That year its listing was terminated because of the merger.
