Admission and Listing Procedures for Regulated Markets or Inclusion in the MTF (Third Market)

On the Vienna Stock Exchange, the admission to listing or inclusion (MTF) of certificates and warrants or issuance programs is characterized by fast procedures and low fees. When an issuance program is admitted to the Vienna Stock Exchange or included in trading, no separate admission procedures or inclusion procedures are required for each of the individual certificates or warrants issued under the program. Trading in certificates or warrants may start two days after the Vienna Stock Exchange has received the final terms.

The admission of certificates or warrants to listing must be applied for by the issuer for one of the two admission segments regulated by law (Official Market and Second Regulated Market). Certificates or warrants are included in trading in the MTF (Third Market) upon the request of one exchange member, one credit institution or one investment firm.

The Official Market and the Second Regulated Market are regulated markets in the meaning of the MiFID.

Below is a brief overview of the two regulated markets and of the multilateral trading facility (Third Market):
