Ministry of Economy and Development, ATHEX and EBRD step up support for SMEs listings in Greece

Ministry of Economy and Development, ATHEX and EBRD step up support for SMEs listings in Greece

 

 

 

  • EBRD launches SME Pre-Listing Support Programme in Greece with Athens Stock Exchange
  • Programme will enable SMEs to access the local capital market
  • Programme funded by the Greek Ministry of Economy and Development

 

Greek small businesses wishing to access the local capital market will receive much-needed support thanks to a new SME pre-listing Support Programme.

The Ministry of Economy and Development, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), and the Athens Stock Exchange (ATHEX) signed today a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to join forces to boost capital market activity and increase the capacity of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) for initial public offering (IPO) or corporate bond issuance on the Athens Stock Exchange.

With the support of the EBRD-Greek Technical Assistance Fund, the new SME Pre-listing Support Programme will extend tailored advisory services to SMEs wishing to access the local capital market. The programme will be implemented by the EBRD in close coordination with ATHEX over 30 months. They will work hand-in-hand to build on the recently launched Roots Programme that also aims to assist SMEs to access financing through the local capital market.

Interested SMEs can apply to the programme with an expression of interest through the Roots website (https://www.roots-program.com). Each enterprise selected will receive a diagnostic on their readiness for listing, based on which a tailored work plan will be developed and executed by high-calibre experts. 

The programme will be implemented under the EBRD's Small Business Initiative and the Local Currency and Capital Markets Initiative.

Τhe signing of the MoU took place in the presence of Stathis Giannakidis, Deputy Minister of Economy and Development, Ilias Xanthakos, Secretary General of the Ministry of Economy and Development, Socrates Lazaridis, Chief Executive Officer of the Athens Stock Exchange and Sabina Dziurman, EBRD Director, Regional Head of Greece and Cyprus.

Mr. Xanthakos said: "The implementation of the Programme in Greece is innovative and will substantially contribute to the transfer of know-how and best practices from other countries. We expect the Programme to improve the level of information flow to Greek SMEs on alternative sources of financing beyond bank lending, and to set the conditions for the rejuvenation of the Greek capital market. The Programme is one of the two programmes funded by the EBRD-Greek Technical Assistance, with the other one being focused on Expanding SME Access to Trade Finance and Advisory in Greece".

Ms. Dziurman added: "We are very pleased to launch the SME Pre-Listing Support Programme in Greece as it will not only enable us to further support local SMEs, but also to support the development of the local capital market. The Programme will have a demonstration effect for a wide range of companies and will ultimately promote and enhance the visibility of investable SMEs to local and foreign investors."

Mr. Lazaridis commented: "We are delighted to be joining forces with the EBRD, an old partner of ours in several successful projects, to enhance the role of ATHEX as an efficient and effective fundraising mechanism for SMEs, an important contributor to the development of the Greek economy. Having the opportunity to capitalize on the experience of the EBRD in supporting SMEs and developing the capital markets for this purpose, strengthens our confidence in achieving this goal. The combination of the Roots programme with the SME Pre-Listing Support Programme is expected to be beneficial to the growth and competitiveness of Greek SMEs. We thank the Ministry of Economy and Development, which has played a catalytic role in this important development."
