Fourth General and Entry Standard Conference starts in Frankfurt Germany’s largest and most successful small and mid-cap conference

Over 700 participants expected to attend the event
(PresseBox) (Frankfurt am Main, ) Deutsche Börse opened the General and Entry Standard Conference on Tuesday, for the fourth time in Frankfurt. A total of more than 700 participants are expected to attend the event, which has established itself as Germany's largest and most successful small and mid-cap conference. With the event, Deutsche Börse brings around 90 companies on the Entry and General Standards together with investors and analysts, serving as a platform for exchanging opinions.

In addition to company presentations, in which companies will present the figures from their annual financial statements at an investor/analysts'

conference, the event will look at current financing and capital market issues affecting listed SMEs. Speakers at the capital market forum will be talking

about investor relations, accounting and corporate governance issues.

As a segment of the EU-regulated market, the General Standard is aimed at companies that want to target both private and institutional investors, but

that want to focus primarily on domestic investors. Around 350 companies are now listed on the General Standard.

The Entry Standard has developed into the largest alternative market in continental Europe since its launch in October 2005. In 2007, a total of seven companies were promoted from the Entry Standard to the highly regulated Prime Standard. With Roth & Rau and Mobotix, already two more companies have been

promoted to the Prime Standard in 2008. The number of companies in the Entry Standard confirms its concept of offering small and medium-sized companies straightforward cost-efficient access to the European capital market.

Currently, 108 companies are listed on the Entry Standard.

Since 25 March, Deutsche Börse has also expanded its sectoral scheme and launched new indices for companies listed on the General Standard and Entry

Standard. The DAX®sector All comprises 18 sectors and 63 subsectors. This not only increases the visibility of the companies but also creates a higher level of transparency and improves comparability with international standards.
