AIX: listing within REMS

The Regional Equity Market Segment (REMS) was created to attract equity capital by medium-sized businesses in Kazakhstan and Central Asia.

Its goal is to support small and growing companies and attract equity by listing on AIX under more flexible terms compared to the main market.

The main advantages of REMS are the following factors

  • Acts as a quick and simple listing, cross-listing and capital raising procedure for issuers;
  • Provides benefits for investors in the form of securities capital gains tax, dividend and coupon payment tax exemptions;
  • Opens up extensive opportunities for businesses in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, including access to foreign investment;
  • Promotes the growth of interest from foreign and regional investors to ensure a dynamic and more liquid market;
  • AIX Rules incorporate the best practices and expertise of the UK Listing Authority (UKLA) and Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC);
  • The AIX complies with ISO 27001 and ISO/IEC 27032:2012 international information security and cybersecurity management standards.

Key factors

  • Both AIFC residents and companies from other jurisdictions, including other countries, can become issuers of the REMS segment.
  • In REMS, you can raise capital in different currencies: tenge, US dollars, euros, British pounds, yuan, rubles and other currencies on request.
  • As part of REMS, the company can raise the following amount: the minimum volume of the offer of shares is 1 million US dollars, while the volume of the offer should not exceed 200 million US dollars. The share price and the amount of attracted investments are determined by market demand.
  • Taxation of a company listed under REMS: for investors (both individuals and legal entities) All proceeds from the sale of shares that are traded in the REMS segment (and in general on AIX), as well as dividend payments, will be exempt from individual and corporate income tax.
