TeamViewer makes biggest European IPO of the year

German connectivity software firm TeamViewer has debuted on the Frankfurt stock market, with a $5.25 bln valuation making it the biggest European IPO of the year.

Julian Satterthwaite reports.

It's Europe's biggest IPO of the year.

German software firm TeamViewer on Wednesday (September 25) making its debut on the Frankfurt stock exchange.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TEAMVIEWER CEO, OLIVER STEIL, SAYING: "I am very, very proud of what we achieved." TeamViewer makes connectivity software for things like remote IT support and online meetings.

Staff gathered on the exchange floor to celebrate the IPO.

There were cheers at the announcement of an opening price of just over 26 euros - about 32 dollars.

That valued the firm at about 5.25 billion dollars.

Early trading saw the share price fall back amid a broader selloff on German markets.

Chief Executive Oliver Steil wasn't worried: (SOUNDBITE) (German) TEAMVIEWER CEO, OLIVER STEIL, SAYING: "It's within the framework we expected.

We had a lot of investors' support and I think we should not forget that stock markets are a little agitated with everything going on around the world.

So we are very happy." TeamViewer will use proceeds from the share sale to fund expansion in Asia and the U.S. Some investors see a warning though in the fate of rival collaboration app Slack.

Since a June IPO its share price has nearly halved amid difficulty in delivering revenue growth.

Depression risk detected by measuring heart rate changes: Study [Video]

Depression risk detected by measuring heart rate changes: Study

For the first time doctors have shown that measuring changes in 24-hour heart rate can reliably indicate whether or not someone is depressed. In practical terms, this may give clinicians an objective "early warning" of potential depression, as well as a rapid indication whether or not treatment is working, so opening the way to more rapid and responsive treatment. Presenting results of this pilot study at the ECNP virtual congress, lead researcher, Dr Carmen Schiweck (Goethe University, Frankfurt) said: "Put simply, our pilot study suggests that by just measuring your heart rate for 24 hours, we can tell with 90 per cent accuracy if a person is currently depressed or not". Scientists have known that heart rate is linked to depression, but until now they have been unable to understand exactly how one is related to the other. In part, this is because while heart rates can fluctuate quickly, depression both arrives and leaves over a longer period, with most treatments taking months to take effect. This makes it difficult to see whether or not changes in one's depressive state might be related to heart rate.
