Basic Board

Basic Board

The Basic Segment (so-called "Basic Board") in the Open Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (FWB®) was introduced in March 2017, when the former Entry Standard was replaced by today's SME growth market Scale. This segment enables former issuers of the Entry Standard as well as issuers in Scale who do not meet the inclusion requirements or the minimum market capitalization of EUR 30 million to maintain a primary listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (FWB®). An initial public offering or technical listing in the Basic Board is not possible.

The Basic Board is not shown as a separat exchange segment, even though the companies in the Basic Board are obliged to continue to publish their financial reports (including the annual financial statements and management report as well as the half-year financial statements and interim management report).
