At a recently held general meeting, a special resolution of a proposed name change for Global Graphics was unanimously passed without amendment. The company will now be called Hybrid Software Group. The change of name has also been accepted by the Registrar of Companies for England and Wales.

The company remains a UK entity with its shares listed on Euronext Brussels. It is expected that Euronext will make the change of name effective from the start of trading on 20 October, 2021, and that the company’s stock symbol will be changed from GLOG to HYSG. There will be no other changes to the listed shares.

Chair Guido Van der Schueren said, “I have felt for some time that the name ‘Global Graphics’ no longer described the group’s mission, especially to the investor community. With the acquisition of Hybrid Software earlier this year it was clear that we needed a name which reflects the real nature of our business: enterprise software combined with printhead electronics for digital printing applications. I’m very pleased with the strong support we have received for this rebranding.”

CEO Mike Rottenborn adds, “The four operating companies in the group – Global Graphics Software, Hybrid Software, Meteor Inkjet and Xitron – operate under their own individual brands which are well established in the market, but it’s important that investors and customers see them as part of a larger group with a complete solution for industrial inkjet manufacturing. Rebranding the company as Hybrid Software Group is an important step in the positioning of our company, and I look forward to promoting the new brand.”
