There have been no substantive rule changes or functionality changes to these markets. The ‘Global Exchange Market’ (GEM) and ‘Atlantic Securities Market’ (ASM) remain unchanged.

We are excited to extend the benefits of the Euronext model to all of our listed companies and trading members. Irish listed companies can now enjoy access to deeper and broader pools of international capital, enhanced corporate services and visibility as part of this single pan-European orderbook alongside their European peers. We are now in a stronger position to offer more listing solutions to scaling Irish companies looking to access permanent capital through a listing on Euronext which has nearly 1,000 listed SMEs and is the number one listing venue for technology SMEs in continental Europe. We look forward to continuing to work with our listed companies and the Irish ecosystem to unlock the growth and opportunities that participating in a single, pan-European exchange offers.”
