Entry Standard

Capital market access provided by Deutsche Börse for small and medium-sized companies as an alternative to EU-regulated segments

Entry Standard is a transparency standard within the Open Market (Regulated Unofficial Market) with additional requirements. Companies in Entry Standard must meet the following criteria and publish on their website:

  • significant company news or circumstances that may be significant for the valuation of the respective stock/issuer
  • the audited consolidated financial statements and management report (respective national accounting principles or IFRS) no later than six months after the end of the reporting period
  • a brief, up-to-date profile of the company and a calendar of company events
  • an interim report no later than three months after the end of the first half.

Inclusion in Entry Standard does not equal admission to a regulated market in the sense of article 2, para. 5 of WpHG (German Securities Trading Act). In Entry Standard, the provisions for organized markets do not apply. This particularly concerns the following stipulations:

  • admission to the stock exchange (article 3, para 2 of AktG – German Stock Corporation Act)
  • obligation to publish ad-hoc announcements (article 15 of WpHG – German Securities Trading Act)
  • notification when threshold levels are reached (article 21 of WpHG – German Securities Trading Act)
  • mandatory offer in the case of a change of control (WpÜG – German Securities Takeover Act)
  • publication of a prospectus in the case of a private placement (article 3 of WpPG – German Securities Prospectus Act)

Therefore, Entry Standard is primarily aimed at qualified investors in the sense of article 2, para. 6 of WpPG (German Securities Prospectus Act), who are able to assess and accept the potential risks related to the investment in shares of the respective organization. Investors must be aware of the fact that this part of the Open Market (Regulated Unofficial Market) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is not subject to the high Europe-wide transparency standards and strict provisions for investor protection on organized markets.

*FSE Listings: Note of warning, we have no affiliation to a group misrepresenting the FSE Listings brand called Julius Csurgo, Global Regency, Merger Law Associates, Frankfurt Listings, and other such names. As far as our research has revealed, they appear to charge more and allegedly are slower than our firm at listing, in addition, we are not even sure they can list firms. Several firms have complained they were listed and didn’t even get to trade or clear properly using listings services and contacted us believing us to be the same firm. We believe that in this matter, one should be careful of all firms who do not have the representative Mark Bragg contact you. Our firm listed several companies in April and expects to do this again in May, with over 100 listed to date as a consortium. We are the leaders, competition is only healthy if they are not misrepresenting a brand, therefore, we bring this to your immediate attention that we have no affiliation to these firms. We are the only FSE Listings Inc, contact Mark Bragg today.
