“Following the recent changes in the minimum entry criteria to the London Stock Exchange Main Market, the Aquis Growth Market is now even more of a serious alternative for emerging companies seeking to raise capital”

Aquis Exchange PLC (AIM:AQX) is to list on the Apex Segment of its own exchange while also keeping its AIM listing.

“A dual listing on the AQSE Growth Market is a logical step in the group’s progression and a tangible demonstration of confidence in that market,” the exchange said in a statement.

“As the AQSE Growth Market is a recognised stock exchange and recognised growth market (like AIM), Aquis’ securities on the AQSE Growth Market will continue to be qualifying investments for ISAs, exempt from SDRT and are eligible for relief from inheritance tax.”  

The exchange has also partnered with VSA Capital Limited to create an index of stocks listed on the AQSE Growth Market.

This index, to be known as the VSA Capital AQSE Apex Index, will incorporate all equities within the Apex segment of the AQSE Growth Market and be weighted by market capitalisation.

Alasdair Haynes, Aquis Exchange’s chief executive, said: “The Aquis Stock Exchange has been transformed over the past two years to make its rules more appropriate for growth stocks, to boost liquidity and to encourage more retail investors into the market.

“In addition, following the recent changes in the minimum entry criteria to the London Stock Exchange Main Market, the Aquis Growth Market is now even more of a serious alternative for emerging companies seeking to raise capital and is positioned as the home of growth companies. It is logical therefore for Aquis to be on our home market”.
