New share market wins recruits

13/05/2011 by Robert Tyerman, Growth Company Investor

Bridge Hall Securities, Curzon Corporate Finance and IAF are among the investment groups understood to be joining the new GXG share-trading facility, which is due to open for business later this month.

GXG Markets UK, owned by the Swedish GXG Global Exchange Group, is launching this new online platform, which is subject to Danish regulation, in alliance with AIM-quoted financial services minnow Merchant House Group and hopes to attract a matched-bargain service for smaller companies chafing at the costs and illiquid trading conditions many experience on AIM or PLUS.

Using software called ‘Tellus’ designed by its team in Sweden, GXG Markets UK, run by managing director Simon Kiero-Watson, will also offer an ‘over the counter’ facility for professional investors to trade companies that may not have Plc status. For the Danish-regulated market, GXG and Merchant House envisage listing companies valued at between e5 million and e50 million (£4 million and £42 million).

GXG Group, headed by chief executive Mikael Rosenberg, is using Danish regulations because it already operates an equivalent facility in Denmark and under European Union rules it can use its Danish approvals and licences to trade in Britain. The company says ‘passporting’ in this way is significantly faster and cheaper than starting from scratch.

Kiero-Watson argues that GXG’s matched-bargain system will eliminate the hefty spreads between bid and offer prices often suffered on PLUS and sometimes on AIM, and contends that GXG’s costs will compare favourably with existing exchanges and markets. Rosenberg wants GXG, which has links with some major continental financial groups, to create a pan-European marketplace for small and medium-sized companies and alternative investments.

PLUS Markets Group, AIM-quoted operator of the PLUS share market, denies feeling threatened by GXG. Paul Haddock, head of capital markets at PLUS, says ‘competition can often be beneficial’ and argues that a ‘key difference is that PLUS has Recognised Investment Exchange status’.

GXG Markets UK and Antevorta Capital Partners Ltd. announces a global trading platform for SME’s in London, UK

For Immediate Release : London, UK July 31st, 2011

GXG Markets UK has established a comprehensive range of market solutions which assist and offer SMEs with clear and effective market quotations. GXG’s market solutions has been specifically designed to provide SMEs with a more competitive market quotation utilizing proven and robust trading systems.

What GXG Markets UK offers is a simpler and more cost-effective route for companies to achieve a market quotation and offers a range of different solutions:

  1. Over-the-counter (OTC) Market;
  2. Multi-Lateral Trading Facility (MTF);
  3. Fully Regulated Market.

Each market option offers real time live trading of shares, or for less liquid shares, a regular auction based trading platform. Both of these options provide trading that is concluded on a matched bargain basis which effectively removes the spread between the price a buyer is willing to pay and the seller receives. The removal of the bid/offer spreads is important because the only factors affecting the price of the trade should be the price at which someone is prepared to sell and the price at which someone is prepared to buy. The market price displayed for each company is always the last traded price from the market.  However, investors can additionally elect to see the best five bids and offers currently available in the market.

As A SME you may be looking to obtain a market listing for a number of reasons.  GXG has established an admission process to ensure that joining the Exchange as an issuing company is as straightforward and as easy as possible.  There is no need to issue a prospectus unless you are planning to join the Regulated Market.

Here are the advantages to you as an SME:

  • no minimum or maximum capitalisation;
  • no minimum prior trading record required;
  • no prescribed level of shares to be in public hands;
  • no requirement to be a plc if joining the OTC;
  • no complicated take-over rules;
  • straight forward admission process with no requirement to produce a prospectus on admission unless joining; the Regulated Market.
