A week full of history lies ahead of the Swiss financial center. Investors are eagerly awaiting the IPO of the Zurich running shoe brand On on Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange. The company, in which Roger Federer (40) is also invested, should then be worth CHF 5.5 billion. But the day before, another Swiss company dared to take the step on Wall Street – almost unnoticed by the general public.

The IPO of the sports data provider Sportradar based in St. Gallen is no less spectacular. The numbers are gigantic by Swiss standards: A prospectus from the US Securities and Exchange Commission that Blick shows: Sportradar wants to raise $ 504 million by offering 19 million shares in a price range of $ 25 to $ 28 per share. In addition, there is a private placement of $ 159 million. If the goal is achieved, the St. Gallen residents are worth over 7 billion francs. It would be one of the largest IPOs in Swiss history!
