NEW HEAD OF INVESTOR RELATIONS FOR AKER BIOMARINE
Aker BioMarine has appointed Martin Stenshall as the company’s Head of Investor Relations.
Stenshall comes from Danske Bank Markets in Oslo, where he has held the role as both Senior Analyst and Head of Equity Research. Prior to joining Danske Bank, Stenshall held key financial positions at KPMG, PwC and Aker Kværner. He has a Master’s degree in Finance from Griffith University in Brisbane, and a Bachelor’s of Accounting and Auditing from the University of Oslo.
“I was drawn to Aker BioMarine due to their strong focus on sustainability and the exciting growth journey ahead. This is not only because of the planned listing on the Oslo Stock Exchange in early 2021, but also because of its products, which I see as a strong contributor to human and planetary health,” says Stenshall.
“After many years in finance, I am really looking forward to working for a company that directly supports health, environment, and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals,” he adds.
Aker BioMarine has been trading on Merkur Market since 6 July 2020. As part of the listing, the company raised NOK 2.15 billion (USD 225 million) in new equity through share issue. The company will move to the main list on the Oslo Stock Exchange within the first quarter of 2021.
Aker BioMarine is a biotech innovator and Antarctic krill-harvesting company. The company develops krill-based ingredients for nutraceutical, aquaculture, and animal feed applications.
“We have now entered a new phase where the financial markets will play an important role as we grow our company. Investor Relations is an important function, to ensure that we are open, transparent and always engaging with our stakeholders, keeping them abreast of our journey,” says Katrine Klaveness, CFO at Aker BioMarine.
She continues, “With Stenshall’s extensive experience and deep understanding of the financial markets, I believe that both Aker BioMarine and its investors are in good hands.”
