Budapest Stock Exchange launches new equity market category
The Budapest Stock Exchange (BSE) introduced a new equity market category called "Equities Category T" on 3 September 2012. By launching this new category, the BSE hopes to promote the option of a technical listing, the simplest form of entering a regulated market, to companies considering going public.
The BSE aims to highlight the opportunities of technical listings for potential issuers and draw investors' attention to the differences between the risks associated with listings combined with public transactions and the risks of a technical listing. Moreover, growing demand from market participants for a new, better structured and transparent market segmentation on the stock exchange was a major factor in the BSE’s decision for this new category.
