The conference “Companies on the Alternative Stock Market: Governance and Issues of Incorporation” is held at Comillas
What rules should be followed by companies that wish to intervene in the “Mercado Alternativo Bursátil”, or MAB, the Alternative Stock Market? What really is the Alternative Stock Market? These were some of the main questions which were answered during the scientific conference “Companies on the Alternative Stock Market: Governance and Issues of Incorporation”, which was organized by the Cátedra Garrigues de Modernización del Derecho de Sociedades (Garrigues Chair for the Modernization of Corporate Law).
The objective was to analyze the progressive spreading of second markets. “The goal was to transfer the good governance of the companies on the IBEX to smaller companies”, confirmed Jesús González-Nieto, Vice-President of the “MAB” (Alternative Stock Market, in Spanish), who added that “this market is aimed at companies of a size and value which is small, but that wish to expand with a tailor-made regulatory process for them”.
