National Stock Exchange (Australia)

The National Stock Exchange (Australia) (NSX) the NSX was re-established in February 2000 and has since grown to become Australia’s second largest listing stock exchange. NSX offers companies a wide and flexible range of listing options covering all market sectors.

An NSX listing is specifically attractive to companies looking for:

• Capital for growth and working capital
• Investor exit and succession planning solutions
• Migration from an existing listing
• Cross-border cross-time zone listings

Since 2000, NSX has helped hundreds of companies list that have raised capital in excess of $2.5 billion for growth and innovation. NSX offers a simple, flexible, cost effective and customer focused option for many companies seeking a listing. NSX also lists debt and investment scheme securities to investors.

A public stock exchange offers listing companies and security issuers many benefits including:

  • Access to capital - raise finance on admission or via further capital raisings for organic growth, acquisition or combination of the two. It also allows a company to access and raise capital in the future. For major expansions, being a listed public company improves access to capital as many investor channels are simply unavailable to companies not trading on an exchange.
  • Wider investor base - increase the number and range of retail and institutional investors
  • Secondary trading - encourages investment, provides a market valuation and allows existing investors to easily exit and new investors to access your company
  • Improved valuation - provides stature, price transparency and an independent valuation of your company
  • Acquisition currency - the issuance of shares provides an alternative method of acquiring assets
  • Share incentives - makes share-based incentive schemes for management and employees more attractive to retain and attract key personnel
  • Higher public profile - receive greater media coverage, analysts reports and general public profile and reputation
  • Improved customer & supplier status - demonstrates financial stability to customers and suppliers
  • Exit strategy - provides an opportunity for founders and investors to realize some or all their investment

Becoming listed on a public market is a logical step in the evolution of many businesses, but should be taken only after proper consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of listing. Most successful private companies see a public listing as the natural course to continued growth and success. NSX specializes in helping companies reach this next stage in their development.

Did you know that it’s possible to list on the NSX and be quoted on the OTCQX International market for less than just listing on another Australian exchange?

NSX will because we understand the benefit to you of having your company quoted in multiple markets that cover multiple time zones and different investors. Being listed in multiple markets gives your company access to different investors, more trading time (Australia plus North America for example) and easier investor access to your stock by allowing trading in their local market (familiarity and same currency) in their usual time zone.
