General Principles for Listing 

The listing of securities on the Exchange is governed in such a way as to ensure that investors have and can maintain confidence in the market. The general principles are set out below:

  1. Applicants are suitable for listing;

  2. The issue and marketing of securities are conducted in a fair and orderly manner and potential investors are given sufficient information to enable them to make a properly informed assessment of an issuer;

  3. Investors and the public are kept fully informed by listed issuers, and in particular immediate disclosure is made of any information, to be evenly disseminated, which might reasonably be expected to have a material effect on market activity in, and the prices of, listed securities;

  4. All holders of listed securities are treated fairly and equally;

  5. Directors of a listed issuer act in the interests of its shareholders as a whole, particularly where the public represents only a minority of the shareholders.
