MQ Trader – The requirement for issuing IPO (Part 3)

Author:   |    Publish date:


There are 2 types of benchmarks used for evaluating the qualification of a company to be listed on the stock market. They are regulatory benchmark and market benchmark. Regulatory benchmark has been explained in the previous blog post – MQ Trader – The requirement for listing IPO (Part 1). In this article, we will be discussing on market benchmark for listing IPO.

Market Benchmark

The market benchmark for listing has no prescribed set of rules. It is purely driven by market expectations, which are basically the perceived value of a company based on the prospect of the company. In turn, these prospects are premised on the attributes that are important to investors.

These attributes include:

  • The track record of promoters, directors and management of your company
  • A company’s stage of development vs its industry’s business cycle.
  • Your company’s financial performance when compared to other companies of similar business and operations
  • Your company’s position in the industry vs competitors

Generally, these attributes are the main factors that investors take into consideration before investing in a company. Market benchmark is also able to identify whether a company will be attractive to investors if it is listed on Bursa Malaysia.


Meeting the regulatory benchmark alone may not be sufficient to attract an Investment Bank to act as an advisor for a company. By using market benchmark approach, advisors have the responsibility to filter good quality companies that fulfill the market benchmark and able to be accepted by investors to be listed in the market.
