CINCINNATI - For the second time this month, a local company rang the bell on Wall Street Monday morning.
Vantiv Inc. celebrated its first anniversary as a publicly-traded company this morning by ringing the opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange.
Fairfield investment advisor Rik Saylor participated in NASDAQ's closing bell ceremony March 1.
Vantiv closed with a $22.85 share price on March 22, one year after it went public with an offering price of $17. The Symmes Township-based company has about 1,300 local employees. It is the nation's top-ranked PIN debit acquirer, according to a recent Nilson Report.
"Today not only marks our first anniversary as a public company, but it is emblematic of our success in 2012," said Vantiv CEO Charles Drucker in a press release. "When we went public last year, we set out to achieve aggressive financial objectives, and due to the hard work of our employees, we exceeded those goals last year."
