Initial Public Offering (IPO)

Process by which a company becomes listed on an exchange

A company usually prepares and executes an IPO with the support of an issuing bank, or, in the case of large-scale issues, in conjunction with a syndicate.

Companies go public primarily as a means of raising additional equity capital and as an exit channel for the original capital providers (e.g., venture capital companies). Additional benefits of an IPO include a higher profile for the issuing company and a broader investor base. It is more advantageous for a company to go public during a bull market because this increases the likelihood that all new shares will be purchased, thereby lowering the cost of capital for the issuer.

Admission to the exchange

Prerequisite for a listing on the stock exchange

At FWB® Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse (Frankfurt Stock Exchange) the Admissions Office is responsible for deciding whether to admit securities to the Official Market; the admission of securities to the Regulated Market is determined by the Admissions Committee. Each market segment has its own admissions requirements. However, all issuers must publish an offering prospectus containing the fundamental data required for an evaluation of the security.

Admission to General Standard does not require any further action on the issuers’ part. However, issuers have to apply for admission to Prime Standard; a listing in this segment is subject to the fulfillment of high international transparency requirements.

Issuing price

The initial price of a newly issued security determined off the exchange by the issuing company

In recent years, the bookbuilding method has become a widely used procedure for determining issuing prices.

*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.
