German defense supplier Hensoldt saw its shares slide on Friday morning as its market debut got underway in Frankfurt. 

The company, once part of Airbus but now owned by U.S. private equity firm KKR, manufactures radar and high-tech camera equipment for military aircraft, tanks and submarines. 

After an issue price of 12 euros ($13.99) per share, the stock dropped to 10.84 euros shortly after opening in Frankfurt, according to Reuters data. The company was originally priced at the bottom of its range and the IPO (initial public offering) reportedly values the company at 2.3 billion euros.

It employs approximately 5,500 people and generated revenues of 1.11 billion euros in 2019.

The market debut echoes the fortunes of caravan maker Knwaus Tabbert earlier this week, which was also priced at the bottom end of its range and saw shares slide as they begun trading.
