Listing Bonds on Emerging Companies Market of the Cyprus Stock Exchange
The Cyprus Stock Exchange, a eurozone member exchange allows private or public companies domiciled in any jurisdiction in addition to Cyprus to issue bonds and list them on the Emerging Companies Market of the Cyprus Stock Exchange (ECM) under simplified listing rules and in record time.
Such a listing of bonds is ideal for:
- Promoters who wish to raise money from other investors and are looking to operate through an approved regulatory structure,
- Promoters who have lined up pension funds and other institutional investors wishing to invest in their project or company whose charter allows them to invest only in listed titles trading on recognized stock exchanges,
- Companies who wish to bypass the banks and offer a better return to investors directly and by issuing their bonds, raise money
The minimum amount of the bonds that can be listed on any eurozone stock exchange, including Cyprus is EUR 200.000 per listing. The Bond Registry is maintained by the CSE in electronic format.
A Trustee will need to be appointed with a Trust agreement in place in order to protect the rights and act in the best interests of bond holders.
Once the bonds are listed, the CSE will provide the ISIN code allowing the bonds to be accessible by all professional investors using their Bloomberg or Reuters terminals. The whole listing process takes 2 weeks to complete and the fees are very reasonable.
Companies interested to list their bonds on the ECM need to maintain a CSE approved Nominated Advisor (Nomad) to handle the listing procedures. Eurivex is an approved and experienced Nomad.
