From research provided by the Nexia International, a leading global accounting and consulting network, said levels of corporate activity on global capital markets are showing signs of recovery but new listings or initial public offerings (IPOs) have not yet begun to accelerate significantly.

The reality is, that the majority of the study was on the mid-market stock exchanges, which take several months to list and become actively traded on such as the Hong Kong, NASDAQ, Euronext, and TSX, however the underlying principal is that “Beyond investor sentiment, the report said costs, regulatory and governance requirements of listings were still seen as the primary obstacles to mid-market listings.”

The Frankfurt Stock Exchange takes only 3-6 weeks to list a company, of which the costs are much reduced and the economic turnaround in Europe is the most apparent and likely for long-term recovery. The market recovery globally therefore should drive more listings on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange as the market with the least obstacles, access to capital, and affordable costs.

The report said any recovery would largely be led by institutional investors, with international funds flowing to relatively low geared investments. However, if one was to review the several 1000 institutional investors in the European market, their investments flow heavily into the German Financial market and inevitably to listings like yours. The private equity, capital, and recovery is in the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, companies from North America, from within the EU, and developing countries such as South Africa, Brazil, China, Russia, and India should be gearing their company to prepare for listing on the Frankfurt market.

Turnaround in markets that are heavily dependent on public listings relationship to institutional investors may recover slower, such as the Singapore market, with proportionally smaller numbers of retail investors. Companies in Singapore and similar smaller markets therefore should be turning to the Frankfurt Stock Exchange where the retail and institutional investor base is high, thus enabling their company to get financed and to have liquidity that is higher than that which they would get in the home market.

The Johannesburg Stock Exchange is another example of a market that is too small for the needs and demands of their local mid-market cap and small cap companies who should be looking to the Frankfurt Stock Exchange to take their company public.

“The report also said it was a matter of “back to basics” if companies were to attract investors, with essential investment criteria being a proven track record, strong management, scalability and the potential for attractive price earnings ratios.”

That goes for any company, listing your business is best when your company is a real business trying to raise real capital. If you are a real business looking to list your firm on an exchange that can take your capital requirements into consideration, than you should talk with info@fselistings.com. www.fselistings.com.

The future of private equity is high with the global uncertainty forcing several companies small and large to consider going public on the stock market to find the available public funds that the Banks have a tight hold on.

With the financial crisis many companies have found themselves with less than adequate funds and the need to list as soon as possible. The problem with going public has always been the time it takes to go public, of which it can take 6 months to 2 years, accept for the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

The US OTCBB market takes up to 12 months on average at the moment due to delays within the DTC market and changing rules and views that are more opinions than documented law within the US.

The best market by far for listing is the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, of which the electronic trading platform and streamlined admissions allows for companies to list in 3-6 weeks. This is due mainly to the efficiency of the Deutsche Bourse Group. As the 3rd largest financial market in the world, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is ideal for new businesses to list for capital. The European market has not been hit as hard as the economists have projected as the diversity within the EU has actually made the financial crisis easier to manage on a Country by Country basis, than the very large unmanageable nature of the US financial crisis. In simple terms, the US is much more difficult an economy and market to manage at this time due to the potential volatility than the relatively low volatility of a couple struggling member states in the EU.

The success and strength of the German Economy in any event makes for a bustling investment community of which new companies can benefit from available capital and exposure in Europe in general.

The future of private equity is in Europe for companies in the US, Canada, Australia, and EU member states who are preferential investment communities within the developed world.

Within the Developing world, the BRIC economic development group and South Africa are preferred private equity investments. That is Brazil, Russia, India, and China, with South Africa as the lead in the African nations.

If you are a firm looking to go public on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange as quick as possible so as to achieve your private equity goals, than you should contact info@fselistings.com today with a description of your business and the desired timeframe to go public.

We can take your firm public on a European Stock Exchange in 3-6 weeks, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is the best market for any Small to Medium Sized Enterprise globally for cost, time-to-list, and access to capital.

How and why South Africa and South African companies can benefit from joining the international financial market through the Frankfurt Stock Exchange for the advancement of SMEs within South Africa is an easy argument for one to make. Even recently the only firm actively listing firms in South Africa, www.fselistings.com, informed our publication that even Sponsor brokers for the Altx and JSE have started referring business to FSE Listings due to the ease of entry into the market, access to capital, and the lack of both in South African financial markets.

Unlike the Altx and the JSE, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is an unlisted financial exchange first, which caters to the smaller international companies that could not even be considered for the domestic exchanges, followed by a fully-fledged international financial exchange offering a full range of products and services under the Deutsche Group umbrella which is the third largest stock exchange group in the world and completes over Euro 5.2 trillion in transactions per annum.

The rationale of South African companies listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange would be to take advantage of the international competitiveness of the FSE financial market which is not available within South Africa. South African’s are well aware of the challenges which include:

  • the lack of a formalised Over the Counter (OTC) market, or an unlisted market;
  • the illiquid monopolistic market and lack of venture capital within South Africa as a whole; and
  • the Reserve Bank and Clearing System challenges that don’t allow for South African Companies to list and compete at a global scale  for

The Frankfurt Stock Exchange is smart to capitalize on the JSE’s lagging behind in launching an OTC market, as Frankfurt has done so in India and China, running roadshows and marketing to local companies to list where an unlisted market doesn’t exist.

South Africa is one of the richest African countries and is ideal for listing companies on an international stock exchange that invests heavily in areas such as financial services, mining and exploration, oil and gas, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, energy, green technology, technology and communication, telecommunications, land development, automotive, and industrial or advanced manufacturing outlets.

South Africa currently has a monopolistic exchange environment, therefore there is clearly an opportunity for a competitor to enter this space and bring out products that will service the South African financial environment with access to an international exchange, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

The JSE is recognised as one of the most expensive exchanges in the world and this is compounded by the fact that it has a 44% shareholding in STRATE Limited and thus has some level of control over the cost of clearing and settling in South Africa.

Globally, capital markets development has been fostered by the establishment of competing financial market platforms such as NASDAQ, AIM, FSE-Xetra and PLUS, towards the objectives of greater access to capital for growth companies, and more efficient and cost-effective product delivery to the investing public. FSE Listings is proposing to market the listings into the Frankfurt Stock Exchange for unlisted companies within South Africa who would like to take advantage of an existing successful global market platform, growing South African companies and African companies into one of the top regions in the world for German and European investors to consider taking a stake in. The initiative is focussed on South Africa to assist in a market which has a developed and educated financial market but lack of access, we alleviate that pain by helping companies list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The process takes only 5-6 weeks for South African’s to go public, which can often take years within the current domestic stock market.

The integration of capital markets with Europe through the Frankfurt Stock Exchange will also help spur accelerated economic growth and the creation of SME’s which create larger regional and financial capital markets, and have international reach both for capital and for marketing their products and services.

Taking advantage of the existing market efficiency of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the potential to speed up the process of financial innovation, liquidity, and facilitate increased foreign capital inevitably will help the South African economy and their growing SMEs.

The Frankfurt Stock Exchange is widely traded by foreign investors globally with 89% of their listed companies coming from outside of Germany, of which more than half are outside of Europe. One can try to develop an integrated market or they can list their company within 5-6 weeks on one of the most integrated stock exchanges in the world. The choice for companies should be simple, list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

The model that the SADC has adopted for the past 15 years has not facilitated the desired growth and FSE Listings has taken all these factors into account and, based on international best-practice for developing economies, believes the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is the solution for South African companies, the SADC, and the African continent of businesses in general as one of the premier investment destinations worldwide.

Fee comparisons of the JSE Main Board, AltX, AIM and Frankfurt

  JSE Main AltX AIM FSE
Listing Cost R1.5m – R3.5m R1.5m – R3.5m R50 000 R50,000
Annual Fees 4 bp market cap R30 000 R50 000 R50,000
Advisory Sponsor (Variable) R90 000 Nomad (R1m+) FSE Listings (R600,000)

This table clearly shows that it is twice to 4 times the cost of listing on the Altx as it is to list on the AIM, and 5-6 times the cost of listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange when considering the Advisory fee of the Nomad and or Advisory`s associated with the foreign markets. The reality is however, that the investment in listing on the foreign market and benefits associated to listing in Frankfurt or the UK far outweigh any benefit that can be offered from listing on an illiquid, undercapitalized domestic market such as the Altx.

As more and more companies from India list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, there is a push marketing to the India market trying to get companies to list. Statistically speaking companies from India trade higher volumes and consistently on the Frankfurt Exchange.

One of the sectors that would be a good idea to list is land development companies especially those to do with Green Building practices which is a high-growth market in India. In actual fact, much of the property development will remain empty as ITES and IT companies move into Green Buildings for tax benefits.

Mοѕt οf tһе companies wіƖƖ head towards Special Economic Zones (SEZ) wһісһ іѕ designed аѕ per tһе green codes аnd tһіѕ wіƖƖ further render ѕοmе properties vacant. For exmaple, the Bangalore real estate builders һаνе no сһοісе bυt tο ѕtаrt constructing green buildings tο save tһе environment аѕ well аѕ tһеіr οwn business.

For this reason, we believe it is important for more green building companies, green technologies, and green focussed listings should be built and financed in India through the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. In actual fact, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is also the largest Green Index in Europe with a specific focus on this market. The high number of Green investors marketed to gives companies the dual benefit of being both Indian and Green.

Go Green, and go Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Choosing The Frankfurt Stock Exchange for Your Canadian Mining Assets To Go Public

Choosing The Frankfurt Stock Exchange for Your Canadian Mining Assets To Go Public

August 14th 2010 Frankfurt, Germany

The Frankfurt Stock Exchange has been the home of many dual listed Canadian TSX and TSXV companies over the last 10 years, however, in 2006 the beginning of new rules for not dual listing companies from the OTCBB and or lesser boards has caused many companies, especially Canadian companies, to slow down their listings in Germany. However, those companies who did list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange from Canada did so for the high-volume appetite of the German and European retail market of investors for Canadian Mining Companies, especially Gold, Silver, Coal, Platinum, Uranium,  and or Oil and Gas companies from Canada who went public in Germany.

The reality is that many markets have suffered from the inability of getting their local exchange liquidity and not being able to list their firms on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange as a dual listing, but what many companies are happily discovering is that listing a company directly as a primary listing is just as easy and only takes 4-6 weeks.

FSE Listings Inc can actually show client incorporation documents and the day they were accepted to the market, all of which fall into the 4-6 week range of incorporation. There is no market in the world with the same liquidity as the Frankfurt Stock Exchange that can list a Canadian mining company or asset as a public vehicle. A trading OTCBB has become a thing of the past with unwritten laws soon to be written allowing FINRA to veto any company without reason, DTC has become an almost impossible time consuming group in the USA due to their inability to agree with the SEC registered documents and rules related to the definition of a shell, where companies are just not getting symbols or the ability to trade.

In Frankfurt, a company is registered for electronic trading, a transfer agent is put into place, a designated sponsor (market maker) submits the listing, and the company is up and running with the ability to trade in weeks.

If you are interested in listing a company on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, consider the following services and required documents:

Firstly Prepare the documentation for your team of FSE Listings Consortium Consultants:

List of Required Documents and Information

  • Certificate of Incorporation
  • Memorandum
  • Articles of Association
  • Number of shares outstanding (as per incorporation documents) and par-value per share (also as per incorporation documents)
  • Certified Copies of ID’s of the directors and supporting documents (please look at appendix A)
  • Business Plan
  • Financials (Opening Balance Sheet etc)
  • Letter from Auditor with regards to paid in capital or a Solicitor who is holding the funds
  • Letter from the CEO Certifying the paid in capital and number of shareholders within the company
  • ISIN documentation completed and applied for by FSE Listings Inc

Second Step Documents

  • Frankfurt Application Document Signed with above documents.
  • Engagement Letter with the Registrar for Electronic Trading within your jurisdiction, For example CREST
  1. Upon receipt of registration details create the register of members of ordinary shareholders.
  2. Produce and issue the initial ordinary share certificates of entitlement.
  3. Liaise with Euroclear UK & Ireland Limited (“EUI”) to ensure all procedures and documentation is in place to enable CREST eligibility of the issued ordinary shares.
  4. Issue for signing and return by your firm both the CREST Security Application Form and CREST Enablement Letter.
  5. Submit to EUI both the signed CREST Security Application Form and CREST Enablement Letter.

Secondly, ensure you have a consultant from FSE Listings Inc who can perform the following tasks with the documentation supplied:

Consulting Services:

  • Initial due diligence
  • Prepare and coordinate drafting of a Company securities prospectus/expose for admission to the Frankfurt Stock Exchange for IPO
  • Liaising with company management for all due diligence documentation required in respect of the IPO listing
  • Preparation of all other documents required for admission to trading and commencement of trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange
  • Appoint and work with Share Registrar of Company to have shares registered
  • Activate electronic share registration system with Share Registrar and share clearing system in Germany
  • Joint presentation of the application for the listing of new shares for IPO by Company
  • Liaison with Frankfurt Stock Exchange
  • Drafting and coordinating publication of any mandatory announcements
  • Application for the start of trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange for the Company’s IPO.
  • Assist in transfer of shares via CREST/CLEARSTREAM into the electronic trading system.

FSE Listings Inc announces new Canadian Companies listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange from the NEX, TSX, TSXV, CNQ, and CNSX

August 14th 2010 (Frankfurt, Germany) FSE Listings Inc announces new Canadian Companies listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Three companies from Calgary, Alberta have recently stepped forward and two companies from Toronto, Ontario looking to list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Several companies find the difficulty to stay as an operating entity on the Toronto Stock Exchange second tier challenging in the current market place where several Canadian Brokers cannot or will not perform a financing for their companies. With the appropriate capital-in, these companies are attractive listings for the Frankfurt Stock Exchange whereby they can begin with their assets and current shareholder base a “fresh-start” in a new market.

Many firms on the TSX, TSXV, NEX, CNQ, CNSX, and related Canadian Exchanges fit the criteria of a primary listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The companies have substantial investment-in and shareholders, a tangible asset that only requires further financing, however, they are in illiquid Canadian markets or lack the appeal to work with a broker dealer.

As one Canadian firm said, “Listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in 5 weeks from incorporation of a holding company, and starting fresh is much better than trying to bring a company back to life from the NEX market or paying out the high-fees demanded by TSX compliance. Frankfurt is simply a better option, Canadians are familiar with it, and its RRSP eligible.”

The Frankfurt Market offers a considerable amount of liquidity, much more than one can expect from a lesser listing, and obviously much better than no listing at all. The fact we can list companies in 5-6 weeks from incorporation, we have perfected the due diligence process and preparation for new clients down to a listing science making us one of the most sought after teams in the small cap markets.” Mark Bragg of FSE Listings Inc and OTC Listings.

FSE Listings Inc has been operating as the Frankfurt Stock Exchange Listings Consortium since 2000, listing companies on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and US OTCBB. With several hundred firms listed within the professional consortium of Listing Partners, Lawyers, Accountants, and Partners, FSE Listings remains one of the most successful and industry relied upon professional groups.

Why list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, and why is it superior to the alternatives?

  • The Frankfurt Stock Exchange is the world’s third largest trading center for securities and Germany’s largest exchange.
  • German investors, both institutional and private, who have held back from investing for many years by government restraints and their own conservatism, are now actively searching for small to mid-size Australian, U.S. and Canadian companies to invest in.
  • The German Frankfurt Exchange has a primary market consisting of more than 100 million people, and has the fastest rate of growth and the highest income per head in the EU.
  • European investors invest for the long term. And in most European countries there are major tax benefits for holding on to purchased stock for a certain amount of time as opposed to “dumping” it immediately into the market. The lack of investors that instantly sell a company’s stock allows for stability in stock price and opportunities for growth. Compared to the listing on other exchanges, such as the NASDAQ, OTC Bulletin Board, Canadian Venture Exchange (TSX) or the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in London, Frankfurt stands out because of the ease of entry, (Audited financials are not required), fast process and low annual fees.
  • Today, with a total turnover of €5.2 trillion per year the Frankfurt Stock Exchange strengthens its position as the world’s 3rd largest trade-place for stocks and the world’s 2nd largest by market capitalization.

Canadian Markets Need To Consider Listing Somewhere other than the US and the TSX, Frankfurt Appears to be the best Option

August 14th 2010 (Frankfurt, Germany)

Canadian markets are facing the potential of a second recession with the capital markets and brokerage firms preparing for potentially another slide in investor confidence. With September approaching, which is not typically a good month in North America, Canadian companies need to consider where they can best access capital for their company.

The US Market takes at least 6-12 months to list a Canadian Company, and relatively similar within the TSXV and CNSX, therefore, choosing to list in these markets not only takes long, but the initial sponsor raised capital may not be readily available as brokers scale back on the number of deals they are doing. Thus, the company puts the ball into the hands of regulators, brokers, and debtors to scrutinize their activity and viability over a long arduous period of time.

The Frankfurt Stock Exchange experience in contrast lists companies within a 5-6 week period, of which, investor road-shows can begin immediately upon listing and capital raising activities allow Canadian mining, technology, and industrial firms to raise $5 – $10 Million dollars without being held back by regulatory approvals or broker dealer options and warrants.

Why list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, and why is it superior to the alternatives?

  • The Frankfurt Stock Exchange is the world’s third largest trading center for securities and Germany’s largest exchange.
  • German investors, both institutional and private, who have held back from investing for many years by government restraints and their own conservatism, are now actively searching for small to mid-size Australian, U.S. and Canadian companies to invest in.
  • The German Frankfurt Exchange has a primary market consisting of more than 100 million people, and has the fastest rate of growth and the highest income per head in the EU.
  • European investors invest for the long term. And in most European countries there are major tax benefits for holding on to purchased stock for a certain amount of time as opposed to “dumping” it immediately into the market.

Regulated Market

As of November 1, 2007, the subdivision of the Official and the Regulated Markets no longer exists. Securities entered into these markets on or since this date are now listed only on the regulated market.

The admission and follow-up requirements of the former Official Market (Amtlicher Markt) apply for the Regulated Market. This also applies to the entry requirements, which previously differed in the two markets: The company must have existed for at least three years; the estimated market value of the shares, or, in the case that an estimate cannot be made, the capital of the company itself must be at least 1,25 million euros, 25 percent of which must be owned by diversified holdings.

The Regulated Market is an organised market in accordance with article 2, paragraph 5 of the Securities Trading Act. This means that the admission and follow-up requirements for the participants and the organisation of trading are legally regulated.

Before being admitted to trading, issuers are required to undergo an approval process as stipulated by public law. Together with at least one bank, a financial service institution, or a company that does business under the provisions of article 53, paragraph 1, no. 1, or article 53b, paragraph 1, no. 1 of the Banking Act, prospective participants must submit an application to the Admissions Board of the respective exchange. Companies already listed on the Regulated Market at one German exchange can apply for admission to another exchange without a supporting institution.

In addition to the admission requirements, issuers on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange opt for a transparency standard. Issuers in the regulated market can choose either the general or the prime standard. Issuers in the open market choose the admission standard. This choice depends on the admission and follow-up requirements.
