Deutsche Börse plans resegmentation of the Open Market-continued

February 6, 2012--Deutsche Börse is planning a resegmentation of the Open Market. The First Quotation Board in its current form will be discontinued, the Entry Standard's rules are also being tightened.
In future, aside from bonds, only equities which have a listing on another domestic or foreign stock-exchange-like trading venue recognised by Deutsche Börse will be included in the Quotation Board, as was the case in the former Second Quotation Board.

Since 2008, a further financing segment, the First Quotation Board has been available in which the applying Members assume selection of the issuers. At the start of 2011, the requirements for the protection of the capital market were tightened. According to findings by Deutsche Börse, the stock exchange regulator of the state of Hesse and the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht), despite criminal law and supervisory measures and the close involvement of the applicant and the tightening of admission requirements, there have nevertheless continued to be massive and frequent suspected cases of market manipulation.
