FSE Listings: Listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is still possible for your firm!
Changes to recent rules for Frankfurt Stock Exchange Listings:
Your firm that desires an FSE Listing needs to have a market capitalization of 750,000 euro which means the company has shares that have been issued to that amount based on assets and value paid for those shares
To qualify for FSE Listings your firm needs to have a 1 euro share price
If your firm didn’t apply for acceptance into the Frankfurt Entry Standard by July 1st 2012, then a prospectus will need to be written and prepared. With a prospectus, audited financials and a third party valuation of asset value is required.
If you are interested in listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange Entry Standard contact info@fselistings.com.
In addition, FSE Listings Inc has extensive investor relations programs available to currently listed firms trying to increase their trading volume and awareness.
An alternative to listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is listing on the London Standard Market, which ranges from 300-350k GBP. Some firms charge as low as 200k GBP for listing on the LSE.
If the London Stock Exchange and Frankfurt Stock Exchange Listings are too cost prohibitive for listing, one could try using the Broker Dealer IFXBG Limited, who is a broker dealer that lists firms on the London Exchange “GXG Markets” which is one of the only true OTC markets within the UK.

The SEC has delisted almost 300 firms recently on the basis that the firms could be in the future a potential pump and dump as the operations where not reported back when requested for information on the operations of the business making pinksheet companies, pinksheet shares, and pink sheet listings on the Pink Stock Exchange (quotation board) worthless. Many firms would have paid $100,000 to $150,000 to buy the companies that were delisted as Pinksheet shells, however, versus giving the companies a chance to recreate themselves without reporting appropriate information, the US SEC has taken the administrative measure to remove them from the stock market.
Most stock market professionals see this as just the beginning for the removal of the companies on the Pinksheets. Either delist, move up the OTCBB or find an alternative stock market to list on.
The OTCBB has been difficult to list firms onto for several years now, with the decrease of OTCBB shells due to shell status effecting DTC eligibility, many firms do not choose to buy shells. Listing the firms directly also are nearly impossible for firms unless they can show strong cashflow and are willing to go through 9 rounds or more of comments for the S1 registration and form 15c211 for a broker to sponsor the stock exchange listing.
The alternative for US companies looking to go public is to go public in Europe. Many firms have looked at listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Berlin Stock Exchange, and Canadian Stock Exchange, but few have realized the most effective market is the Global Exchange, the GXG Markets which is located in Sweden, Denmark, and London. Effectively, the GXG markets is one of the last true providers of an OTC market for foreign companies.

Stock Exchange Listings and How To Raise Capital For Your Firm Through Sophisticated Investors!

More than ever before in the history of financial markets a company requires to have transparency, substance, and liquidity. A proper Go Public strategy or money raising process requires building share value to the investor.

The “real economy” is based on logical revenue producing firms, stable businesses and good investments for the common individual. These firms are attractive for Bond offerings to institutional investors and equity offerings to sophisticated investors.

Most people cannot participate in this real economy as they are not qualified, sophisticated, and accredited investors. A perfect example is IPOs such as Facebook, which is offered to a very high-caliber level of investor and not the general public for the most part until post listing. The highest gains for most investors are in IPOs as statistically proven time and time again.

For businesses a major problem for the companies is they are unable to solicit individuals that are not certified as a class of investor that can be contacted for investment opportunities.

One of the solutions for businesses looking for qualified and sophisticated investors is http://www.sophisticatedinvestorregister.com and http://www.qualifiedinvestorregister.com which actively qualifies over 1,000 investors per week adding them to the largest database of sophisticated investors available.

As a firm, your employees have the capacity to contact interested sophisticated investors who have asked to be contacted. To quantify the importance of a database of this kind, 100-150 sophisticated investors who took part in a listing would equal over 18 million euro in capital raised over 6 months.

In addition, companies that are interested in becoming listed in the UK and taking advantage of the sophisticated investor directive, we can take your firm public on an active UK sophisticated investor stock market as a listed firm and you can utilize an active supply of investors to raise capital. Either through public listings on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Berlin Stock Exchange, Danish GXG UK markets, or Plus Markets, your firm could raise the capital required and successfully IPO or list.

Contact info@fselistings.com today to inquire how you can take advantage of foreign sophisticated investors for your firm today. Whether you are a Canadian firm, Australian firm, US firm, Spanish Firm, or African firm, going public in Europe is the best opportunity for you to gain investment. You may even already be listed on a Stock Exchange, and could still qualify for our program. Please contact us today to see if we can help you.

In addition to sophisticated and qualified investors, we will endeavor to qualify your firm to create bonds and place these bonds with institutional investors. Contact us today for more information. Info@fselistings.com.

The capital markets are definitely unforgiving with changing regulations, changing listing requirements, and changing exemptions but the only unchanged consistency over all for small businesses raising money to go public on a stock exchange is getting “sophisticated investors” interested in your firm.

Every jurisdiction may not have exactly the same name or the same criteria, but what is common is that there is an exemption for investors who qualify. These are sophisticated, accredited, qualified, and high net worth investors.

Within the United Kingdom, there is one FSA regulated database called the Qualified Investor Register, which takes the self-certified documentation and stores this information for regulated and unregulated offerings to refer to as a way to “categorize” the type of investor they solicited. However the database itself is not allowed to be used for solicitation.

In all of our research there has actually only been one database privately held that assists Qualified and Sophisticated Investors. The two websites based on the different terms are http://www.sophisticatedinvestorregister.com and http://www.qualifiedinvestorregister.com.

We highly recommend going to one of these websites and seeing if you qualify. A private database for registering your self-certification will allow for in the future firms like Facebook, or LinkedIn, or other major IPOs to have the right and legal ability to contact you.

Most people miss the high profile IPOs because they are not certified and or recognized reasonably as being “sophisticated” even though they do qualify.

I suggest going and seeing if you qualify today at http://www.sophisticatedinvestorregister.com.

Again, the benefit is access to a pretty exclusive club of investor opportunities that only self-certified sophisticated, accredited, and qualified investors can access.

For companies, the sophisticated investor register opens up the opportunity of being able to contact potential investors under a universal exemption. This exemption immediately can add your profile to fund managers, brokers, and IPO experts who make exclusive offerings, but cannot without certification. As part of the service, you receive a QR Code – Identification system, an official certificate to be signed and faxed back into the register, and free filing of your information with local government databases.

IF YOU HAVEN’T JOINED THE SOPHISTICATED INVESTOR REGISTER THAN YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHAT MAJOR IPO YOU ARE MISSING!

Qualify for major IPOS if you are a US, American, Canadian, Australian, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Chinese, Indian, EU, Latin American, Central American or UK Sophisticated Investor you need to certify today! If you are not sure, qualify and we will get the proper documentation for becoming part of the register!

US Accredited and Sophisticated Investors. In the United States Securities Commission (SEC) definitions of an accredited investor the most common classification that people actually are include a natural person with an annual income of over $200,000 in each of the two most recent years or joint income with a spouse exceeding $300,000 or net worth or joint net worth exceeding $1 million USD excluding the value of primary residence. However, there are definitions for trusts, business directors of the issuer, employee plans, retirement plans, and trusts that also make up this definition. (http://www.sec.gov/answers/accred.htm)

We do encourage small business owners, trusts with assets over $5 million, banks, insurance companies, business development companies and small business investment companies to register as well. The point of registering is to keep record of your ability to participate in offerings you would and could qualify for. This is an invaluable free service by http://www.sophisticatedinvestorregister.com.

Canadian Sophisticated – Accredited Investors. As a Canadian, the terms are pretty general across Canada for Accredited Canadian Investors. In Ontario Canada, this exemption extends to $1 million in financial assets or net worth of $5 million. One of the particular point is of course persons the OSC recognizes as an accredited investor, which again brings us back to certifications inside of a database that has collected your data as a third party to verify and file with local authorities if required or part of a subscription or offering. (http://www.osc.gov.on.ca/en/21943.htm) Most of the Canadian Accredited Investor jurisdictions are similar to that of Ontario with a few small differences in definitions of assets. See if you are qualified as a Canadian Investor.

As a registered accredited, sophisticated, and high net worth investor, you can generally invest as much as you want to as long as you the primary and principal investor are certified.

Australian Sophisticated, Professional Investor. Within the Australia Sophisticated Investor registration process, the caveats are a little stronger with a requirement of an auditor to give proof of net worth of $2.5 million or two consecutive years of $250,000 per annum. Otherwise, it is defined by the investments size of over $500,000. The most common exemption is generally the professional investor in Australia, of which again there is not a reliable database accept for through www.qualifiedinvestorregister.com. Australian Investors should register themselves, companies, and or status to see if they can take part in international IPOs through this exemption.

Hong Kong Sophisticated Professional Investor. Within the Hong Kong sophisticated professional investor definitions, a high net-worth individual has one of the following, a portfolio of not less than HK$ 8millon, corporations or partnerships or trustee companies with portfolios of that size or total assets of HK$40 million, or corporations that solely act as investment holding companies, and owned by a sophisticated professional investor. As a Hong Kong professional I suggest seeing if you qualify today for the Sophisticated Investor Register. (http://www.sophisticatedinvestorregister.com)

UK Sophisticated Investor – Qualified Investor – High Net Worth Investor. As a UK Sophisticated, High Net Worth, Qualified Investor,within the UK definitions of a sophisticated investor, the register is extremely important, especially for Unregulated Collective Investment Schemes where by the company can’t both market and sell to a sophisticated investor that they the fund certified. Having the persons go to a third party first for certification, such as the http://www.sophisticatedinvestorregister.com allows for the promoters of a UCIS to send their investors to register first through the “third party” and return with the certification to invest within the collective investment scheme. Therefore all firms working with UCIS projects should send their investors to the register to ensure they don’t fall foul of Artcile 23 PCIS Order. It is the responsibility of the provider and distributor to send them to this third party register to return to the investment scheme and make a placement.

UK Investors who wish to take advantage of major foreign and local IPOs should consider certifying through a register so that they fully comprehend the risks and benefits. A sophisticated and qualified investor must update their certificate on a 12 month cycle. The Sophisticated Investor Register reminds and keeps informed the register members to ensure this information is kept up to date by the member and they re-certify annually.

The “high net worth” and “sophisticated investor used to be made by a third party and it became apparent that the exemptions were being rarely used due to their being a lack of a registry and cost of the process. This undermined the investors from having the opportunity to take part in IPOs and investments and effected the intention which was to raise funds through private equity from business angels for IPOs and small business. In the UK, a high net worth individual must certify the annual income must is in access of 100,000 GBP, net assets in excess of 250,000 GBP excluding primary residence, insurance, and pension policies. As a sophisticated investor, the potential investor has to certify if they are a member of a network or syndicate of business angels for the last 6 months, has made more than one investment in an unlisted company in the previous two years, has worked in the previous two years in a professional capacity in the private equity sectors or in the provision of finance for small or medium sized companies, or has been in the previous two years a director of a company with an annual turnover of at least 1 million GBP.

Frankfurt Stock Exchange Listings Prospectus

Thursday, February 9, 2012 @ 03:02 PM
posted by admin

As a licensed broker dealer our partner has the team and ability to file prospectus document for the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and submit the documents to the FSA.

A European Prospectus from the UK, Denmark, or Germany often will be enough to sufficiently cover a companies needs.

As a new directive of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange Open Market, a prospectus document is required with the ability of taking your firm up to the Entry Standard market by September 30th 2012.

If you are planning to list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, you need to begin building your prospectus immediately!

In addition, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange has introduced trading requirements with the recent implementation of the Xetra II requirements for trading volume and market maker requirements. Building a market for the companies listed is becoming a requirement of listing. Companies that list without a prospectus are limited by their abilities to market their company based on BAFIN regulations, which limit the use of the company symbol and various other stipulations for firms who do not have a prospectus filed.

However, with the prospectus filed, there is more flexibility when co-ordinating publicity and investor relations. More and more companies are being driven towards a prospectus to mobilize their overall market making activity, not limited to press releases, publications, roadshows to retail investment markets, and incoming requests. It is only a matter of time, maybe even September, before companies will have to take two key aspects into consideration or become delisted:

  1. A prospectus so that the firm can actively market their share symbol and company to the general public without contravening securities laws in Germany and or Europe in general
  2. Maintaining an active market to enable market makers to maintain their role of actively buying and selling shares within the market, which is not possible in an illiquid market

One naturally pertains to the other, as the prospectus enables the flexibility to make a market, without the ability to attract a retail market the market makers eventually can not support the bid and ask from the sale of existing shareholders and the market could, can, and will being to move towards a lower illiquid position.

The reality is that a company can list before having a prospectus on the open market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, however, it is advisable to begin developing the prospectus as soon as possible to ensure shareholders and the public have the disclosures necessary to invest in the firm and to be able to stay listed after September 30th 2012. For a price quote and proposal to develop a prospectus, contact info@fselistings.com.

FSE Listings- How to raise real money on the Frankfurt Exchange with active trading markets and why Equity Lines of Credit do not work for Newly Listed Firms

The Frankfurt Stock Exchange – Deutsche Boerse Group trades over 14 trillion euro in securities and has the ability to offer a very liquid marketplace. However, for newly listed firms, the liquidity comes slowly overtime and a proper FSE Listings public relations strategy. Trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is not like trading within the US OTCBB, where many tools like equity lines where invented. These mechanisms do not work on newly listed firms as the market maker structure in Frankfurt is different than the US and Australia, but most Equity line and Listing firms don’t really know how “TRADING ON FRANKFURT” works, therefore, if someone sold an equity line to your firm, do not expect the funds immediately after listing. Funding from these types of mechanisms only can occur when the provider can sell shares into the market to finance your firm.

My biggest fear with new companies is that they sign on for equity lines, debentures, bridge loans, and or even some are so naïve to give up 5% of their business to the firms that list them… once the firm lists the stock that gets sold into the market makes your company worthless. As active trading the FSE Listings market is, if someone hits the bid of the market maker, the company becomes liable for the trade, the market maker orders the firm to pay their open positions, and the company gets delisted if they don’t have the funds to cover. Thus, active trading and equity lines do not work on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange for new companies.

No matter the mechanism, check what they are selling you with us first! Most time their proposals lack the details of the final documents or the final documents hide how you “Default” the day you sign on. Many of these types of funders started in New York on the Pinksheets and OTCBB, however, they now operate in
Australia, Hong Kong, Brazil, Vietnam, the USA, Canada, and are aggressively targeting firms wanting to list in Frankfurt.

There are ways to produce active trading:

  • An investor awareness campaign to sophisticated investors via online marketing
  • Press Releases and good news
  • Releasing financial data that is audited and prepared for public disclosure
  • Building a Prospectus and delivering the prospectus to institutions
  • Performing a roadshow
  • Newspaper and Print marketing of the companies reputation

On average for every 1 euro you spend in public relations your firm will see 2-3 euro in market trading and interest.

If we use the 3 to 1 ratio as the real ratio (I have seen firms claim to do 10-1 ratio, but these
firms generally can’t even do 0-1).

If you have an equity line of credit and begin a campaign with 100,000 euro invested, you will see 300,000 euro in market activity. Under most debentures and equity lines, over the first 15 day period the financers generally go by a lowest bid price average over 15 days prior to drawing down or asking for funds. During the first few days of that time they would have shares, thus they probably sold into this market, at least 1/3 of the trading which is stipulated in their contracts which is equal to 100,000 euro they now have. This sale would drive the share price down back to 10 cents for example. Over the next 15 days they are required to assess the market again to finalize your payments.

Day 1: They sell additional shares into the market, but the market cannot hold up 100,000 shares sold because the 3 to 1 marketing is not strong enough to hold up large blocks of shares being sold in the market, the bid drops from 1 euro to 10 cents euro.

Day 2-15: The shares in hand, the financer is capable of holding the lowest bid price and daily close at 10 cents.

The request for funds from the equity line would be the first 15 days of 1 euro averaged with the last 29 days of 10 cents in concept. However, any block of shares sold outside of their block would have to have come from a “blacked out” seller or any shares sold over a certain size. So the contract defines that you basically get 12.6 cents euro on the dollar of the 100k euro sold into a market you paid 100k euro for. Thus, you get 12.6k for the 100k in shares you gave the equity line provider. With the pressure of stock sales in your market from financer’s holding shares, it is almost impossible to sustain your share price and “volume” at the same time over a 30 day period as per the documentation as a newly listed Frankfurt Company.

The reality is, do not give shares to investor relations firms or firms who claim to list you and do investor relations, you will get pennies on the dollar if they pay you at all.

Many of these firms attach upfront fees paid from the funds they get from selling your stock, thus the chances of you seeing any money is low, and the chances of you destroying your company is high. If you want me to explain your equity line of credit and how it may be a death trap for your firm, contact myself Mark Bragg, info@fselistings.com and send over the agreements for us to review for free and tell you where they get you.

Why the European Crisis is the opportunity for a corporation to raise money in Europe with Frankfurt Listings and Bonds

The current tension about the possibility of downgrading various country ratings with the S&P is driving institutional investors to purchase bonds and invest in Companies who are at par or less risk than Countries themselves!

Institutional investors generally take positions in no less than 50 million euro packages into Countries and Companies globally in the trillions of euros invested annually. The crisis has leveled the playing field putting companies and countries at a level playing field within the AA rated and AAA rated categories. It is important, because many firms and listing agencies claim to build bonds, but our partners develop AA rated Bonds! The rating is the key with competing.

As a Country outside of Europe, you also get the benefit of the institutions leveraging emerging markets and or opportunties outside of their own predicament.

How can small businesses take advantage of the Crisis with Listings?

FSE Listings Inc lists companies on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and then utilizing your public company listing packages together 50 million euro of AA rated bonds to finance the company. The package is often sold within 20-30 days of listing and bonding the company.

A minimum of 2.5 million euro per company and maximum of 5 million euro. (There are special instruments and compartments within the funds that can qualify for 50 million euro or more.)

Now you as a company can access and compete with Countries and gain institutional investment. As the stock markets in the world try to stabilize, a prospectus and listing with a Frankfurt Listing company is often not enough surety to get investment. Bonds are in demand for the institutions, and the rating of a cash flow positive company with assets is stronger than a poorly run Country who is leveraged. The institutions are making the smart choice, and switching from investing in the red and going into the Companies themselves. This could be one of the most explosive trends for raising capital and building businesses in a decade! With the regulation of Hedge Funds and downgrading of Countries, investment dollars are looking for a secure return.

The only firm in the world that offers the Frankfurt Listing combined with AA Rated Bond issuances is FSE Listings Inc and IFXBG. (International Financial Exchange and Banking Group)

Don’t fall for the prospectus pushers who raise no money for your firm, or equity-lines that are based on market volume, get financed based on value with the best securities tool to access institutional investors!

How do you start?

AA Rating is the new Black says Bloomberg, there may never be AAA ratings – it’s time for you to take advantage of the trend while it exists!

FSE Listings: Why list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with FSE Listings and Issue Bonds versus working with Equity Placement firms, Equity Lines or Equity Capital Partners

Initially one needs to understand the cost to a company of taking shareholder equity. By committing to Equity Placement firms and or Equity Line holders shares of the firm, you are giving them a direct claim to your firms profits proportionate to their investment and holding of your firm. Therefore, you as a company need to consider:

The Real Cost Of Money – The cost of issuing shares is higher in the long-term than that of developing a debt instrument such as a bond. For example, the limitation of a Bond with a 10% yield, a shareholder is limitless based on a portion ownership of your firms growth. A Bond may be over 5 years, and the capital invested increases your capacity by 50%, so the funds in place are justifiable for the coupon payment of 10%. After 5 years, your firm earns all the profits of the decision made. With shares and shareholders, as long as there are shareholders, they have a right to the profits of the company ongoing. Often companies underestimate the real costs to gain the shareholders, which are in short the immediate and ongoing cost of legal, accounting, financial advisory, governance and corporate professionals such as brokers, bankers, and sponsors. In the current markets, these costs can absorb up to 50% of funds raised in an IPO, and sometimes they are costs that exceed the capital raised directly related to their services. Often, after the exercise of writing a prospectus and preparing your firm to raise capital, the capital raising in the private equity market depends on your ability to help raise money and pay attention to the shareholders and potential investors to gain the investment. The time consuming exercise deteriorates even some of the strongest businesses as the focus is on capital and not the company management and profitability during that timeframe. This is a high cost.

Loss of Control – The Company loses control to make decisions as it is required to consult with the shareholders of the Company. This is a difficult choice for entrepreneurs, and it is even more difficult when trying to set the today value of the dreams, aspirations, and blue sky of a firm to an investor. Often private equity involves losing more control than debt of the operations and decision making of a company.

Downward Pressure on the firm’s value – Go public and merger law related firms, or firms who offer equity lines of credit, convertible debentures, and private placement services at a discount of your share price create pressure on your stock and companies value. Especially the Bridge Loan programs for listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, whereby they take their 5% of the shares and sell them into the market or at a discount to shareholders who liquidate based on emotion as they have no relationship with your firm and its success. Equity line firms strive on being issued shares for no upfront cash over a 15 day period or more so that they can sell shares into your market pushing down the stock value and bid so they can make more profit, of up to 50-90% in some cases. These PIPEs, Debt Financing, and special purpose private equity placements are toxic to companies who want to raise additional capital as their company value is driven down to pennies and control is ultimately diluted both in voting power and in their ability to raise and attract interest of capital. Beware of the equity partners and capital firms who offer Equity Lines, Private Placement, Bridge Capital, and Financing options prelisting of your firm. The most illiquid moment of a company is prelisting, and therefore, the owner of such a document actually has control of your firm before giving you a dime. The ability to apply pressure to anyone’s share price in our opinion is the ability to control someones firm. Bridge Loan (Sharks) and joker brokers who assist firms who do not have the 60k euro to list on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange prey on unsuspecting firms for their 5%+ of your deal and reputation to take advantage of your firm once it is listed. Don’t fall into the penny stock pump and dump scenario by avoiding these kinds of partners from the beginning. In addition, these firms may disguise their tactics by promising stock promotions of which you will be able to liquidate your shares and or your shareholders will be able to liquidate their shares into a vibrant market. We receive 5-10 phone calls per week from these types of stock promoter and bridge capital firms who are trying to sell their shares privately and exit the company. Their interest is not in your firm or your share price, its exiting their position. Be vigilant about who you choose as your partners, and before you choose anyone, get the advice of FSE Listings Inc as to their professional reputation by contacting www.fselistings.com.

Effects on the Balance Sheet and Financials

Dividends are paid from after-tax earnings, bond payments and interest payments are tax deductible. This affects the relative costs to the company of financing by issuing interest-based securities and financing through ordinary shares.

Everyone always thinks about listing a firm and raising private equity capital, however, public company shares are just the ability to offer shares and liquidate shares in a public arena. Thus, it gives a cash flow value to the shares of the company. Unlike private company shares that generally have no cash flow value. By listing your firm on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, your shares have cash value to insurance firms and debtors, who will develop a corporate securitized bond collateralized by the cash flow and assets of the company.

The Benefits of the Bond and Frankfurt Listing:

  • No loss of control
  • Interest and Coupon Payments that are tax
    deductible, not from after tax earnings
  • Limiting the claim to the companies prosperity
    to rate of interest or coupon payments versus a shareholder claim of the
    profits (the true cost of money)
  • Access to the full amount of capital required
  • No downward pressure on your share value or
    market
