Our ownership structure

Management in Novonesis is headed by the Board of Directors and the Executive Leadership Team. The leadership and governance structure promotes transparent and sustainable corporate value creation.

Novonesis’ stock consists of two types: A and B shares. Both shares have a nominal value of DKK 2 per share, but an A share carries 10 times as many votes as a B share.

Just after completion of the merger between Novozymes and Chr. Hansen, Novonesis had approximately 100.000 shareholders. At that time Novo Holdings A/S held 23.87% of the total common stock and controlled 62.55% of the votes. Novo Holdings A/S is the holding company for companies in the Novo Group.
