Unrivalled cross border experience

In September 2015 the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) announced changes which now make it easier for New Zealand Exchange (NZX) Main Board listed companies to list on the ASX. Under these changes companies listed on the NZX Main Board now fall within the Foreign Exempt Listing category of the ASX. These companies are no longer required to comply with the full suite of ASX Listing Rules as well as the NZX Listing Rules. It is now both easier and more cost effective for NZX companies to list on the ASX. Computershare have recently helped Mighty River Power, Meridian Energy, Genesis Energy and CBL Corporation (the first under the new Financial Markets Conduct Act) with their IPO and dual NZX and ASX listings. If you are thinking about a dual NZX and ASX listing, we can provide the expertise needed to seamlessly execute your IPO.
