The listing offers SMEs the opportunity for equity financing to develop the business - from expanding operations to acquisitions. The option to increase its capital through the capital market offers the company the possibility to have long-term capital and also to obtain additional financing from banks or other financial institutions through the issuance of financial instruments (bonds) listed.


The continuity and transparency of information requirements imposed by the listing market to issuers of financial instruments reduces the costs of collecting information and monitoring for banks, allowing listed companies to enjoy more favorable loan terms.

IPO on the exchange strengthens the continuity of the startup phase

Considering that only 30% of Italian startups survive beyond the fifth year of activity, the listing on the Malta Stock Exchange contributes to ensuring the continuity of companies, beyond the figure and the role of the founder.

Create a mechanism of employee incentives

Employees of listed SMEs may hold stakes in the company and enjoy the benefits of their quality as shareholders, thereby reinforcing their commitment to their work for the success of the company.

Prestige and increased visibility

 

The quotation increases the visibility of the company. Public recognition gained through the media and documents made public gives SMEs a higher profile and greater credibility, which translates into a broader and more diversified investor target. This results in a greater ability to attract the placement of the financial instruments issued and therefore the value of the company.

Increase of brand awareness

In today's free market economy, brands compete to dominate the market. They do it both through price policies and by improving the quality of their products and their reference. As competition is bound to be harder and harder, to remain among the successful brands on the market, further measures are needed to keep the target customers alive. The stock exchange offers the company greater credibility towards the public, through the intrinsic guarantees and the implicit checks made by the market regulator.

Liquidity for shareholders

 

Stock market listing creates a trading and trading market for company shares, offering investors a regulated environment in which to trade their shares. Increased liquidity on the public market leads to a better valuation of the shares compared to what one would have in private transactions

Impulse to growth through mergers and acquisitions

The shares of the listed company can be used as an exchange currency to finance acquisitions of shareholdings in target companies, with consequent optimization of the use of liquidity and attractive tax advantages.

Efficient risk distribution

 

The development of capital markets has always allowed a more efficient distribution of risk through the transfer of risk to those willing and able to support it. Therefore, the capital markets allow capital to be exploited to the fullest and that the most risky and profitable assets are appropriately financed.

Tax benefits

 

The advantages relating to trading in financial instruments issued by companies listed on MALTA STOCK EXCHANGE (capital gains) are exempt from taxation on income from capital in Malta.
In several European countries, such as Italy and Spain, attractive tax incentives are available for private investors wishing to direct their savings towards the financial instruments issued by SMEs listed on European markets.
