WDP in Bel-20 after 20 years of listing

Double party at WDP! Because 20 years after going public on the Brussels Stock Exchange, our stock has now been included in the Bel-20, the index of the most important stocks on the stock exchange. The actual inclusion takes effect on 18 March 2019 and is part of an annual review of the Bel-20 by Euronext.

The Bel-20 Index

Companies must meet a number of conditions to be included in the Bel-20 Index. Euronext takes into account the market value of the company, the freely tradable shares or free float, and liquidity. 

WDP has been regular fixture for 20 years

WDP has been a trusted value on the Brussels Stock Exchange for twenty years now and has also been listed on Euronext Amsterdam since 2015. With a current market capitalisation of around 3 billion euros, we have a robust financial state. WDP grew from a small niche player into a reference in logistics and semi-industrial real estate.

Solid property portfolio

Today, WDP is market leader in the Benelux and we also have a strong commercial platform in France and Romania. Our property portfolio includes 5 million m² of storage space representing approximately 3.5 billion euros. This value is expected to rise to 5 billion euros by 2023.

 

Without our listing on the Stock Exchange, WDP would never have been able to achieve the growth, professionalisation, and brand awareness that we have now. It is partly thanks to the appreciation of our shareholders that we can write this success story – internationally as well.
