Prague Stock Exchange pleased about new listings despite crisis
In addition to several bonds admitted to trading, a new stock was also listed on the Free Market
of the Prague Stock Exchange. The issue of OCEL HOLDING SE shares was a so-called technical
listing, a procedure which has not been used before at the Prague Stock Exchange.
The Prague Stock Exchange has also opened a new unregulated market: "START" is a niche market for small and medium businesses, providing them with simple, straightforward and affordable access to capital. The new market is regulated by the Exchange only and its rules are set to satisfy the needs of issuers, while guaranteeing sufficient liquidity, which is a key issue for investors. The partners of the project are Raiffeisenbank and Cyrrus, both of which act as so-called Guarantors. In order to ensure that potential investors are best informed about the results of the businesses traded within the START market, the Exchange has assigned Guarantors the task to prepare the so-called annual analytical report. This report compares the issuers’ latest results with their business plans presented upon their market launch. Investors thus have a clear view of the attractiveness of their investments. The first issuer - e-publishing company “Wooky” - has already been admitted by the CEO of the Stock Exchange and is to start trading by the end of July.
