Serko lists on NZX Main Board

The public pool of the IPO, by which the company sought to raise $22 million, was over subscribed by 350 per cent and had to close nine days early.

Following a successful IPO, Serko shares have commenced trading on the NZX Main Board today under the ticker code ‘SKO’.

The public pool of the IPO, by which the company sought to raise $22 million, was over subscribed by 350 per cent and had to close nine days early. Following completion of the offer, the company now has around 900 shareholders, including institutions from Australia and New Zealand, clients of some NZX firms and members of the public in both countries.

The IPO was meant to provide the funds for Serko, a NZ cloud-based travel services provider, to expand into target markets in the Asia Pacific.

CEO Darrin Grafton said: “We are very pleased to reach this exciting milestone. We greatly appreciate the support and confidence of our new investors. We are now moving forward with our plans to expand our existing business into new markets and develop new products that will help corporations run more cost effective travel programmes for their employees.”

Chairman Simon Botherway said: “The response to Serko’s capital raising has been very pleasing. We now have a strong and diverse share register.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
