Nasdaq Baltic.

Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius exchanges belong to the common Nasdaq Baltic stock exchange system. The Riga stock exchange was opened in 1992, the Vilnius exchange in 1993 and the Tallinn exchange in 1996. 

Today, the Baltic stock exchanges have joined and are commonly referred to as the Nasdaq Baltic stock exchange.

All three stock exchanges have a similar structure, comprised of three parts:

1) The main list of the stock exchange, where the company must have an operation period of at least three years, the company must have at least 4-million euros worth of market value and strict information disclosure requirements apply.

2) A secondary list of the stock exchange, where the company must have an operation period of at least two years, the company must have at least 1-million euros worth of market value and strict information disclosure requirements apply.

3) An alternative trading facility, First North, where certain market capitalisation and fixed activity history terms are not necessary, as well as less strict rules for information disclosure apply.

As of 2018, the market capitalisation of the Baltic main list is 6.1 billion euros, the secondary list market capitalisation is 1.8 billion euros, and First North is 59.5 million euros.

 

NASDAQ London.

The main list is in turn comprised of the Premium Segment and the Standard Segment.  For a company to be listed in the Premium Segment, it has to meet the United Kingdom’s super equivalent rules, which are stricter than the EU regulations.

The Standard Segment is open to issue shares, GDR (bank certificates), bonds and derivatives to which the minimum EU requirements apply. The alternative market (AIM) is open for listing growth companies registered in the European Union and whose aim is to eventually be listed in the Premium Segment.

A special funds market aimed at professional investors is also part of the main list. In addition, the London stock exchange also has a Specialist Securities Market, where the companies can raise capital with the aid of unique capital instruments such as bonds and DR-s (depositary receipts).

INITIAL COIN OFFERINGS

Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) means offering cryptocurrency
within the development of any project.

We help to prepare and spread the information!

At the moment, cryptocurrency is mostly an unregulated territory, thus, if the company’s profile is suitable, a public coin offering is used as an alternative to raise finances for the company. A White Paper is prepared for conducting an ICO, which provides a detailed description of the company’s business ideas and future perspectives.

Also, a roadmap is prepared, which sets the order in which the money received from an ICO is used and invested, and in what order. In the course of an ICO, a certain amount of project-related cryptocurrency is issued for the interested persons, which can be used to pay for services. To determine the value of this cryptocurrency, it is usually listed on a cryptocurrency exchange. 

The three largest crypto asset exchanges are:

1. BitMEX: www.bitmex.com
2. Binance: www.binance.com
3. Upbit: www.upbit.com

SwistBankers helps to prepare the documentation, the technical environment for conducting an ICO and spread the information and communicate with the potential investors interested in an ICO.

The largest ICO’s introduced in Estonia are the Polybius Foundation in the amount of 26.8 million euros and Agrello (smart contract-based legal agreements on the blockchain) in the amount of 25.5 million euros, also Change Bank in the amount of 14.9 million euros.
