Corporate bond offering

A Frankfurt Stock Exchange or London Stock Exchange corporate bond offering allows your company to raise money without dilution to any of the shareholders. On 26 January 2012, the 10th corporate bond was listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange’s Entry Standard segment (the Entry Standard segment only began allowing bond listings in March 2011). The Entry Standard segment has proven to be very well suited for the issuance of corporate bonds for small and medium-sized companies. A corporate bond is not only listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, but is also accompanied by an approved prospectus, which allows for advertising and promotion to the general public. Since only March 2011, companies with Entry Standard listed bonds have received a total of approximately €390 million through corporate bond financing. The capital raised via these ten recent Entry Standard bond listings was between €15 and €70 million. This proves that even attractive smaller companies with smaller financing requirements are successfully placing their corporate bonds on the Entry Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

VINTRY PLC and its law firm will take care of everything needed for the bond listing, including the bond rating and promotion to institutional investors. Please contact us to discuss listing a bond on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. We look forward to hearing from you.

About the London Stock Exchange

Established in 1698, the London Stock Exchange Main Market has long been home to some of the UK’s, and indeed the world’s, largest and best-known companies. There are over 1,400 companies on the Main Market with a combined market capitalization of £3.7 trillion. Companies of all sizes, types and nationalities together represent approximately 40 different sectors. As well as sectoral and geographical diversity, the Main Market accommodates the admission to trading of companies with a Premium Listing or a Standard Listing.
 
More than 85% of the capital raised on the London Stock Exchange are done so on its Main Market rather than the smaller AiM or PLUS. In the past, listings on the London Stock Exchange Main Market has been reserved solely for larger, more established companies and the listing rules/requirements were quite strict. Recently, the London Stock Exchange was divided into two segments, the “Premium” and the “Standard”. This change is extremely import to companies considering a listing in London because now, not only can less established companies list on the London Stock Exchange main board, but they can do so at about half the cost and in less time than the AIM market. Companies can now list on the highly respected London Stock Exchange’s main board easier, faster and more affordably than ever before. And not only are the listing costs much less than the AIM, the total ongoing costs are less as well. As such, a London Stock Exchange listing on the Main Market is much more attractive to companies of all shapes and sizes than the AIM or PLUS. Whatever your company’s size or sector, we can put you at the heart of one of the world’s most sophisticated financial communities, the London Stock Exchange Main Market.
