The Leading Bulgarian IoT company is the first winner of this special Forbes award

April 18, 2022, Sofia Allterco’s dual listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange has been recognized as the most impressive deal of 2021 at the Forbes Business Awards 2022. The listing took place last November and thus the smart device manufacturer became the first Bulgarian company to have its shares listed directly on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Following this stock exchange debut with a secondary listing in Prime Standard, the segment with the highest transparency, Allterco’s market value exceeded BGN 500 million. The deal is a huge success for a Bulgarian company, which not only testifies to Allterco’s great ambitions for growth and development, but also to the company’s potential to revolutionize the IoT market.

“2021 was an extremely successful year for Allterco and this award is a proof that the team’s efforts are paying off. I’d like to thank Forbes for the award! To us, it’s a recognition for our great job, as well as a motivation to innovate and conquer more peaks and markets. We continue boldly forward and no wonder to see you here again next year”, commented Dimitar Dimitrov, CEO of Allterco.
