THE Philippine Stock Exchange Inc. (PSE), in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), will conduct a two-day virtual forum for potential Small, Medium and Emerging (SME) Board listing applicants.
The event, dubbed The Road to Initial Public Offering (IPO): SME Forum, will be held on Sept. 16 and 17, 2021 from 2 to 4 p.m.
“We had a similar IPO event in May, but that covered all potential listing applicants. This forum is aimed at large companies in the SME segment and SMEs with high growth potential that are looking to raise capital for expansion, research and development, and other business needs,” said PSE president and chief executive officer Ramon Monzon.
“We are pleased to have the support of DTI and SEC in this endeavor, which is just one of several activities lined up to boost listings in the SME Board,” Monzon added.
The forum will feature topics that will help SMEs understand the benefits of going public, the different phases in the IPO process, and the role of external parties that listing applicants work with to realize their IPO dream. (PR)
