The (SEBI) announced the new norms applicable for listing on the SME exchange.
The security and exchange board of India (SEBI) has recently announced the new norms to be applicable for listing on the SME exchange. A model SME equity listing agreement has been drafted in order to highlight the conditions required for getting listed on the SME bourses.
It is believed that the listing criterion for small entities on the SME trading platform will help small scale firms to meet the required conditions to raise adequate equity capital from the market.
The norms has also been relaxed to a great extent by the capital market regulator for SME- exchange listed securities, thereby, also facilitating SMEs with the option of submitting half - yearly financial results in lieu of quarterly results. The small firms are not required to submit annual report anymore.
SEBI had earlier allowed existing exchanges, namely, Bombay Stock exchange (BSE), National Stock Exchange (NSE) and Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX-SX) to set up separate trading platforms and had also relaxed the criteria for their listings.
