Share data


Novozymes’ 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.

At year-end 2019, Novozymes had more than 52,000 shareholders, of whom 95% were private shareholders in Denmark. Around fifty institutional investors, including Novo Holdings A/S, owned approximately 50% of the B shares. Roughly 70% of the B shares were held outside of Denmark. Novozymes held 4.1% of the B shares, equivalent to 3.3% of the total common stock. Novo Holdings A/S held 25.5% of the total common stock and, through its holding of the A stock and a proportion of the B stock (20,461,400 shares), controlled 72.0% of the votes. Novo Holdings A/S is wholly owned by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, and Novozymes is therefore included in the consolidated financial statements of the Novo Nordisk Foundation.

The Novo Nordisk Foundation wishes to be an “Engaged Owner” in relation to Novozymes and apply engaged ownership objectives and principles which among other things are described in ‘Objectives & Principles for engaged ownership in relation to Novo Nordisk A/S and Novozymes A/S’, cf. The Novo Nordisk Foundation supports Novozymes in achieving its vision, ensuring competitive financial results and adhering to the Charter for Companies in the Novo Group. All strategic and operational matters are solely decided by the Board and the Executive Management of Novozymes.
