Recently, we’ve discussed the benefits of dual listing, including reaching a wider audience, engaging with international investors, and helping to propel your company’s growth. We’ve also addressed key considerations issuers face when embarking on a dual listing strategy, such as navigating regulatory hurdles, pricing, and finding the right platform.

Here at Upstream, a MERJ Exchange market, we understand these challenges. That’s why we offer a cost-effective solution specifically designed to address them. You maintain your current exchange listing requirements on your primary exchange and without any additional regulatory filings, your shares can be dual listed on Upstream. We allow international shareholders to deposit their shares with ease and allow for international buyers to purchase your company shares directly from the Upstream trading app. Note U.S. persons may not deposit, buy, or sell securities on Upstream.

So, here’s how to start the dual listing process and globalize the opportunity to invest in exciting growth opportunities like yours.

  1. Tell us a little more about your company: Head over to the Upstream Get Listed page, enter the issuer's name, email, contact, and what you’re interested in listing to get started. You will receive a welcome email with additional details on the listing process.
  2. Connect with your Listing Advisor: Please look out for an email from a MERJ Sponsor Advisor who will schedule a call at your convenience to answer any additional questions you may have about listing on Upstream. They will be your guide throughout Upstream’s listing process to help answer any questions you have.
  3. Integration & Approval: Once your application is approved, your securities will be integrated onto Upstream. You will then notify your investors that they will have a venue to trade their securities on and may open accounts to do so. Again, this is for non-U.S. investors.
  4. Listing Day: It’s the big day! Enjoy a virtual bell-ringing ceremony, press release, and joint announcement. Continue to connect your investors using our shareholder engagement tools.

As we continue to kick off our 2024 dual listing program, U.S. issuers can dual list for just $10,000 and international issuers can dual list for $5,000 for a limited time to reach global investors. We are also offering over $100k in IR value through our media partners like IBN, Investment Pitch Media, Spotlight Growth, New To The Street, ADVFN, Mission Matters, and The Average Joe.
