The NYSE-MKT is an attractive exchange for solid micro and small-cap companies.  NYSE-MKT has four different listing and public shareholder standards with a number of differing combinations within.  As a result, the NYSE-MKT listing requirements offers flexibility to companies operating in different market sectors.

We are always open to talk to corporate executives who are considering listing on the NYSE-MKT.  The listing requirements can sometimes be confusing and waivers can be applied for in certain circumstances when a company desiring to list is strong in all listing categories but for one.  Do feel free to book an appointment with us if you need assistance to determine if your company qualifies to list on the NYSE-MKT or other exchange.
