FSE Listings: Listing on the Open Market (First Quotation Board) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange

The main listing requirements for the First Quotation Board are:

  • Free float requirement (at least 30 initial shareholders)
  • Minimum share capital of 500,000 Euro
  • An ordinary share par value of 0.10 Euro
  • An Issuer Data Form with supporting documents, such as Business Plan, 5 year projections, Auditor Verification of the details of the Opening Balance Sheet and share capital, etc.

A prospectus is not required, the issuer data form and supporting document, in addition to the share capital sufficiently clear the firm for listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The listing therefore does not require clearing through BaFin, where a prospectus does. The Issuer Data From pertains to where there is no public offering, that the company is primarily raising capital through Private Placement and exemptions that allow for capital to be raised. Some of these exemptions could include, owners of companies, investors with capital to invest over 50,000 euro, frequent investors categorized as Qualified, Sophisticated, and Accredited investors. The subscription agreement and jurisdiction therefore covers these requirements and the method of retaining the investors.

A Frankfurt Stock Exchange BaFin prospectus is applicable, where the Issuer Data Form allows for the companies to contact institutional investors and high-networth investors, the institutions are often limited to investment to companies that have successfully filed with BaFin a prospectus. A prospectus ranges from 30k-80k Euro on average, and depends per company and what is required by the Investment Bank and Broker Dealer. It is often not as simple as just building one to have one, this is partly why many companies build it after listing and at the requirement of a firm who will commit money. Meeting these firms are usually done through Roadshows, contacting investment bankers and designated sponsors over the Internet in Germany is probably the most ineffective way to progress. The best is to hire a firm, such as FSE Listings Inc’s partners to personally deliver the contacts to you and discuss the goals and requirements to invest in your firm after listing.

The Open Market Entry Standard

The Open Market Entry Standard is a little more complex with its requirements over the First Quotation Board, where by there is a minimum 1 year of corporate existence, free-float requirement (at least 30 initial shareholders), minimum share capital of 500,000 Euro.

In general, the requirements and obligations after listing a firm on the Entry Standard include publication of facts which may materially affect the market price of the issuer’s securities, audited consolidated financial statements not later than six months after the end of the reporting period, interim reports within 3 months of the end of the first half of the financial year.

Various listing committees, audit committees, and governance are recommended in order to prepare to move up the various higher levels of the exchange into the General and Prime Standard. We recommend to more clients to begin as an Open Market Frankfurt Listing with capital to build a prospectus as a development stage company and then progress to the upper tiers of the exchange. Recently several of the new listings on the General Standard were Entry Standard firms that progressed their listing.

*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.
