Cboe launches Cboe Global Listings: “first-ever truly global listing experience for issuers”

Rick Steves

“As companies and asset managers of the Innovation Economy seek to raise capital and grow their assets, our global reach and expertise are ideally suited to meet their unique needs.”

Cboe Global Markets has announced the launch of Cboe Global Listings, said to be the first-of-its-kind, global listing network facilitating worldwide access to capital and secondary liquidity for companies and ETFs.

Cboe Global Listings focuses on growth companies and asset managers committed to innovation with a global impact and leverages Cboe’s existing network of stock exchanges in five markets around the world to facilitate access to capital and liquidity across the globe.

Cboe Global Listings aims to serve growth companies and innovative investment produts

With the launch of Cboe Global Listings, all Cboe-listed stocks in the U.S. and Canada can also be made available for trading in the Netherlands and the UK, with Australia to follow.

Cboe’s end goal is to enable corporate and ETF listings across all its exchanges, providing issuers with best-in-class global investor exposure, global account and product management – as is already the case with Cboe’s ETF listings offering – and standardized operational support. In summary, a seamless “intralisting” experience within a single exchange group.

Uniquely focused on powering the purpose-driven Innovation Economy, Cboe Global Listings aims to serve growth companies – particularly those with novel business models operating in nascent, high-growth industries – and innovative investment products that are addressing world challenges and shaping the economies of tomorrow.

“The first-ever truly global listing experience for issuers seeking to tap new markets”

Dave Howson, Global President of Cboe Global Markets, said: “Cboe has built an expansive, global equities footprint unrivaled in the industry that uniquely positions us to deliver the first-ever truly global listing experience for issuers seeking to tap new markets beyond their home region. The new Cboe Global Listings offering draws on our 50 years of markets expertise, deep regional experience in all the jurisdictions where we operate, and the combined strength of our global equities exchange network to provide locally optimized and centrally coordinated listing services and support. As companies and asset managers of the Innovation Economy seek to raise capital and grow their assets, our global reach and expertise are ideally suited to meet their unique needs.”

Cboe Global Listings will welcome Abaxx Technologies, Inc. as the first intralisted issuer on its global platform. The firm initially went public in December 2020 on Cboe Canada (operating as the NEO Exchange in Canada). Upon intralisting, common shares of the company’s stock will also be tradeable on the Cboe UK and Netherlands exchanges.

Jos Schmitt, President and CEO of Cboe Canada and SVP, Head of Global Listings for Cboe Global Markets, said: “Abaxx has been a valued partner of Cboe Canada over the years, and we are excited to deepen our relationship by welcoming them to the Cboe Global Listings network. Through our extensive global exchange network, Abaxx can access key financial markets around the world to gain greater investor exposure, liquidity, and capital-raising opportunities to accelerate their growth – in addition to benefiting from Cboe’s best-in-class global service and support. Our mission is to help a regional listing transition to a global success, and we are committed to championing Abaxx’s continued growth as the first intralisted issuer with Cboe, the Exchange for the World Stage.”

Josh Crumb, President and CEO of Abaxx Technologies Inc, commented: “Our upcoming intralisting is a significant milestone for Abaxx as we continue to advance our mission toward Smarter Markets. With our shares listed and tradeable across multiple Cboe stock exchanges around the world, we expect to be well-positioned to further broaden our investor base, access new pools of capital and liquidity, and enhance our shareholder value. We are proud to continue and expand our listings relationship with Cboe, a global exchange group that shares our commitment to technology-driven innovation and progress, and we look forward to benefitting from Cboe’s global reach and services to access even more investors in North America and across the globe as we prepare for the launch of Abaxx Exchange.”
