Listing Requirements

The HTML to link to this page
 

Listing requirements are the criteria set by a stock exchange to list the stock of a public company on that exchange. In the US, the New York Stock exchange has the most demanding criteria for listing. The listing requirements of the American Stock Exchange are the easiest for a smaller company to meet. Example listing requirements include minimums for revenue, earnings, market capitalization, and share price. Listing requirements are periodically updated. The exchange can delist a company that no longer meets the exchange's listing requirements. Delisting is not necessarily immediate, with a possibility for appeal or a limited amount of time to return to meeting the listing requirements. An exchange may have more than one scenario of listing requirements to accommodate a few different types of companies.
