Celebrating 75 years of our IPO

On September 24, 1944, Johnson & Johnson was first listed as a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The Company was founded in 1886 and had already established itself as a successful business for almost 60 years. Taking it public created an opportunity for people to invest in a company with a vision of healthcare, expanding the frontiers of Johnson & Johnson geographically and scientifically, to deliver health and healing globally, propelled by significant breakthroughs in science, technology, and medicine.

The collective commitment and efforts of our global Johnson & Johnson colleagues throughout the decades have enabled great achievements and strong results, evidenced by:

  • Impacting more than a billion lives every day;
  • Increased dividends for the last 58 consecutive years;
  • 36 consecutive years of adjusted operational earnings growth; and
  • Our standing among Standard & Poor’s Top 10 Market Cap companies.
