Listing incentives ‘add value’

THE environment for listing is one of the most conducive we’ve seen, and we are pleased that several prominent companies are now going through the listing process.

Licensed investment adviser and managing director of Kontiki Capital Ltd Griffon Emose made the comments when South Pacific Stock Exchange (SPSE) asked for his advice to potential companies that have been contemplating listing on SPSE.

Mr Emose’s comments was part of the SPSE’s latest stock market awareness column on the ‘Benefits and Incentives for Listing’ issued on Monday.

“So I think a company that lists, provided its management and performance is sound, is likely to see strong investor support and price growth over the long-term.

“In addition, we have some very attractive listing incentives in place,” Mr Emose said.

He said the 10 per cent reduced corporate tax rate, the 150 per cent listing cost deduction, stamp duty and capital gains waivers, and other incentives could add substantial value to any company.

The SPSE said this week they raised awareness for potential companies that could list and answered some key questions asked by companies that had been contemplating listing for some time.
