Most businesses are designed to be scalable. Along your growth journey, your business may find itself in need of raising capital and provide liquidity for its shareholders. A workable way to achieve this is through a public offering on a regulated market. However, going public comes with a huge set of complexities such as stringent regulatory oversight, enhanced reporting requirements, increased liability and an expensive process, just to name a few.
Hence, with your business being cost-averse, you may be struggling to find alternative, yet robust ways of raising capital and improving shareholders’ liquidity while enjoying relaxed regulatory scrutiny and continuous obligations. But is there a solution to the problem with no catch?
At Royal Pine, our response to the problem is the utilization of the Emerging Companies Market (ECM) of the Cyprus Stock Exchange (CSE) which allows for your company to float its securities to a recognized secondary market of an EU member state. The ECM is governed by a simplified regulatory framework and hence when your company is seeking to list its shares, corporate bonds or derivatives it is not obliged to adhere to the mandatory provisions of regulated markets in relation to both listing requirements and continuous obligations.
Apart from gaining the status of a listed company which can increase the interest of investors, the securities themselves can be more attractive to investors as the listing provides a straight forward exit option. In addition, your business can benefit from a lower cost of both listing and continuous obligations compared to the regulated markets, all of the above rendering the capital raising process easier.
A Nominated Advisor needs to be appointed in order to ensure that your company, as an issuer, is appropriate to be listed on the ECM and to advise and monitor the company in respect of its compliance with the rules and regulations. Royal Pine, having the required experience and organization, is authorised by the CSE to act as a Nominated Advisor for debt and equity listings. Our team possess the necessary knowledge and expertise to assist you throughout the admission process while carefully considering your needs.
