What is Monde Nissin’s stock symbol?
Monde Nissin trades under the stock symbol MONDE. You can track its stock price on the Philippine Stock Exchange website. Simply visit the homepage of the website and type in MONDE on the stock quote search bar.
Since the company has a strong presence in the United Kingdom, there is talk of a secondary listing there in the future. Additionally, the United States may also be a potential target for a listing. Stay tuned.
When did Monde Nissin go public?
The company began trading on the Philippine Stock Exchange on June 1, 2021. The company raised approximately $1 billion from the initial public offering (IPO). According to CNN Business, it was the largest IPO in the country’s history.
A large portion of the money raised from the IPO will be used to increase the growth of the Quorn brand. This is the area where the company expects to see substantial growth over the next decade as the demand for meat alternatives is likely to continue to ramp up.
Despite the increasing popularity of Quorn, Monde Nissin still views Lucky Me! (an instant noodle company) as the backbone of the company. Money will almost certainly be used from the IPO to bolster the brand through increased exports to places like North American and Europe. Additionally, the company will likely attempt to elevate sales in its already strong markets in the Philippines and Thailand where they still see much room for growth for instant noodles.
