Listing Requirements

International and World Stock Exchange Listing Requirements

We assist companies in going public. We can even help new corporation to go public. Once a company becomes public they must meet certain listing requirements in order to be listed on one of the various stock exchanges and trade their securities.

Although the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) is a governing board in the United States it doesn't set the listing requirements for foreign stock exchanges and bourses, these are set by each individual stock exchange. Typically they include a specific minimum number of publicly traded shares and shareholders along with minimum trading price for their stock and overall market value for their company. In addition to initial listing requirements, each board has continued listing requirements. Meaning each company is required to fulfill specific standards in order to continue having their stock listed on that board or they may be delisted. However these requirements are typically more relaxed than the initial ones. The OTC Markets, OTC Pink Sheets and the Over the Counter Bulletin Board OTCBB have the most relaxed standards.

This is a directory of stock exchanges throughout the world. Please visit each exchange’s website for more specific detailed information on how do you get a listing on the stock exchange and what are the requirements to list on the stock exchange.

OTC Pink Current Information aka The Pink Sheets

The OTC (Over The Counter) Markets operate a bit differently than the other US markets. OTCQB and OTC Pink have no listing requirements; this fact makes them particularly attractive to smaller companies and startups that may not have large revenues and earnings.
