Rapidly expanding companies will soon be able to access the capital markets to realise their full growth potential. Nasdaq Dubai’s Growth Market, which is set to launch in early 2021, will allow these companies to raise capital and build their international exposure by going public through an IPO. Supported by a network of high quality financial advisers, the Growth Market opens up the opportunity to connect with a wider pool of investors and, in many cases, provide better valuation opportunities. The Growth Market is tailored to further assist companies on their path towards a Main Market listing.
Nasdaq Dubai Growth Market was launched by the Crown Prince of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, on October 27, 2020.“SMEs are a key engine of our national economy. The launch of the Nasdaq Dubai Growth Market is a strategic step that will support this vital sector by opening new horizons for companies and providing them with investment resources to expand their business and enhance their attractiveness in global markets," His Highness said.
Where a company is not ready to go public, Nasdaq Dubai’s Growth Market for private companies is the ideal destination to take advantage of some of these benefits and start preparing to become a public company.
Nasdaq Dubai’s Growth Market requirements provide the flexibility to allow a wide range of companies to list
Nasdaq Dubai will launch the Growth Market in collaboration with leading advisory firms, including financial institutions, law firms and accountancy firms. The role of a Listing Advisor is to provide support to a Growth Market company before and after its IPO.
These firms have individuals who have experience in conducting IPOs, or professional training and at least 5 years relevant experience. They come with the knowledge and ability that will help you through your IPO journey.
Listing Advisors assist the issuer with the IPO process, including preparing the company for the IPO and writing a prospectus for investors. After the IPO, a Listing Advisor maintains a relationship with the company for 3 years to assist with meeting the ongoing requirements.
Nasdaq Dubai is working with key entities to support companies in their capital requirements and listing on the Growth Market. These include investment banks, corporate advisory firms, lawyers, leading accounting firms, government entities, funds and free zones.
