Rocket Internet SE: Uplisting to Prime Standard
Rocket Internet has applied for admission to trading on the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange / Trading of Rocket Internet's shares on the regulated market is expected to commence around September 27, 2016
“The uplisting has been an important goal for Rocket Internet and underscores our efforts to comply with the capital markets best practices”, says Oliver Samwer, CEO Rocket Internet.
Since Rocket Internet’s IPO in October 2014, the Company’s shares were listed on the non-regulated market (Entry Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The Company changed its accounting standards to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) last year, which is a key requirement for a Prime Standard listing.
