Prime Standard

Prime StandardThe premium segment for raising equity

The follow-up duties required in the Prime Standard exceed those of the General Standard and have to be fulfilled in addition to the latter. In other words, the Prime Standard sets the very highest transparency requirements of all segments at FWB® the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and, indeed, in all of Europe. The additional admission follow-up duties for the Prime Standard stand out not only for the higher transparency yardstick but above all by the fact that the requirements have always to be met in English, too. The Prime Standard is therefore the right choice for issuers who in particular want to appeal to international investors.

Moreover, inclusion in the DAX®, MDAX®, TecDAX® and SDAX® selection indices is reserved for issuers who have been admitted to the Prime Standard.

The Prime Standard is a segment of the Regulated Market with additional admission follow-up duties. The admission conditions and the individual follow-up duties are set out in the Exchange Rules for FWB® the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. On receipt of an application, the management of FWB® the Frankfurt Stock Exchange decides on approval for admission to the Prime Standard. The application can be submitted together with the application for admission to the Regulated Market (General Standard).
