In today’s economic environment, an exchange listing may seem out of reach for many companies not because they lack a strong business concept and market potential but because they do not fulfill the required financial requirements to list on a national securities exchange.

With the creation of the BX Venture MarketSM, entrepreneurial ideas can meet investor capital, with listing requirements that are targeted to smaller and earlier stage companies.

While the BX Venture Market has lower financial listing standards than the major national securities exchanges, the corporate governance requirements are similar to those required for listing on them. The BX Venture Market provides a well regulated, transparent platform for companies to gain additional visibility in the investment community. Further, companies and their shareholders will benefit from superior trading technology, as well as a robust portfolio of products and services.
