Flexible listing process

A flexible process will include all elements of the normal process for admission to listing, but the timing of the meeting of the Listing Committee / Board of Oslo Børs to consider the application will be set to suit the application. The timetable for the individual elements of the admission process will be calculated on the basis of the date decided of the extraordinary Listing Committee / Board meeting. The flexible process will require a minimum of eight weeks in the same way as the normal listing process.

For the normal process for admission to listing, public disclosure that the company has applied for admission to listing takes place four weeks before the meeting of the Listing Committee / Board of Oslo Børs that is due to consider the application. In the case of a flexible process application, instead of submitting a formal application at this stage the company will submit an updated report to Oslo Børs.

In a flexible process, the formal application for admission to listing will be publicly disclosed three days before the extraordinary meeting of the Listing Committee / Board that is to consider the application, rather than four weeks before the meeting as is the case for the normal process for admission to listing.

Time to market can be essential for the likely success of an IPO and our flexible process can accommodate for the following:

  • Flexibility. The timing of the meeting of Listing Committee/Board of Oslo Børs to consider the application will be set in according to the needs of the issuer.
  • Confidentiality. Public announcement of listing intention can be delayed until just three trading days prior to final approval.

Listing fee for flexible process

The listing fee for issuers using the flexible process will be twice the normal listing fee for the ordinary process of admission to listing on Oslo Børs/Oslo Axess due to the fact that this process will place greater demands on the resources of Oslo Børs than the normal listing process.
