 IPO @ PSE - SkyscraperCity
PSE president Francis Lim said the exchange, for one, is looking at liberalizing the listing rules for small and medium enterprises to help them obtain capital through the stock market.
PSE president Francis Lim attributed the double-digit rise in the exchange’s profit to the passage of the expanded value-added tax law; improvements in government’s fiscal program; a higher-than expected economic growth figure in the first quarter; a manageable inflation rate; and “accommodative” monetary policy.
PSE president and chief executive officer Francis Lim said this move would improve not only the competency of prospective capital market practitioners but also increase investment awareness and develop an investment-conscious culture among Filipinos, and in the process, contribute to the country’s economic development.

PSE president Cayetano Paderanga had said the changes in the computation is seen to boost liquidity in the stock market by encouraging listed companies to increase the number of shares available to the public.
