Prospects for SMEs

In Capital Market


As part of our advisory services, Nexia BT Advisory Services Limited assists interested SMEs in applying for admission to Prospects MTF. We can guide SMEs in the lead-up, ensuring the company is ready for listing on Prospects MTF. Our team will oversee the SMEs towards creating sound management and governance of structure.

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) make up a majority of all companies in Europe. A common challenge for these companies is gaining access to capital. It is typical for SMEs to experience constraints to grow organically due to limited cash flow and access to cost-effective capital.

Prospects MTF can be the solution you’ve been looking for. The Malta Stock Exchange’s new platform grants access to SMEs to raise finance on the capital market, through equities or debt. Prospect MTF strives to facilitate raising finance through this initiative.

Key Features:

Prospects MTF is a cost-effective measure and another essential advantage is the time to market. 

  • The issue of either shares or bonds of €8 million and below is not subject to listing rules of MFSA (Initial Public Offerings; IPOs; and corporate bond issue of €8 million shall not require approval from the MFSA, provided that either they do not exceed €8 million or not more than 150 investors form any single jurisdiction, thereby resulting in a shorter processing time.)              
  • Lower admission and annual listing costs
  • Raises brand value
  • Improves corporate governance and transparency
  • Lighter admission requirements
  • Stepping stone to eventual listing on a regulated market

This financing platform is also available to overseas seeking an influx of capital to fund their business ventures. Positioned as a global financial services provider, with a skilled workforce, attractive economic growth possibilities and a stable banking system, Malta is ideal for SMEs seeking a reliable and abundant base for their business activities.

  • The entity must be an SME, as defined by the EU.
  • The IPO shall not exceed €5 million or €8 million but acquired by less than 150 investors from any single jurisdiction, so as to benefit from the simplified Company Admission Document, instead of a Prospectus.
  • As part of the Prospects application process, a Company Admission Document and other required documents must be submitted.
  • Applicant must have a minimum share capital of €46.587.
