EU stock market rule change to boost start-up floats

Lord Hill, the European Union commissioner spearheading the EC's Capital Markets Union plan, has revealed plans to shake up stock market guidelines in a bid to encourage start-ups to tap public markets. The changes mean European companies will now only have to issue a prospectus for investors if they are raising more than €500,000 (£351,000), compared with €100,000 previously. Smaller companies should see reduced costs in providing the legal documents, as they will become shorter and clearer, while there will be a simplified prospectus for companies already listed that want to raise more money. Lord Hill envisions a Silicon Valley-style ecosystem in Europe. Other proposals from the EC include the creation of a pool of funds to encourage more traditional institutional investors to put their money into early-stage businesses.
