What are the different market sectors for shell companies?


Until October 2007, the German share market had three sectors: Official Market, Controlled Market and the Open Market.


On 1 November 2007, the Official and Controlled Market sectors were then combined with the Regulated Market so that there are now just 2 sectors: the Regulated Market regulated by law and the Open Market regulated by the stock exchange.


The essential difference between the sectors is the strictness of the publicity and formal regulations. While the Regulated Market displays the strictest publicity and transparency requirements with its sub-areas of Prime and General Standard, the very popular Open Market (even among foreign companies), with its sub-sector of Entry Standard, can be described as an ideal entry and medium-sized business sector with lower demands.
