Admission to the MDAX

HENSOLDT celebrated the opening bell on the trading floor of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Almost three years after its successful IPO, the company was admitted to the MDAX on March 20. On April 13, the Executive Board had the honour of ringing the traditional bell at the stock exchange, and CEO Thomas Müller said: "The new chapter in the MDAX is synonymous with the new role and responsibility we now have in defence. The Zeitenwende has also arrived on the capital markets.”

HENSOLDT combines strong innovation with an attractive, robust business model. The macroeconomic environment in 2023 was shaped by high inflation, volatility all across the economy, and disruption in global supply chains. Even in this challenging context, HENSOLDT maintained its successful growth trajectory. The company recorded significant growth in revenue and income along with high profitability.
