South Asian Federation of Exchanges holds the Sixth Pakistan IPO Summit
Event Date: 11/19/2016
Event Location: The Falettiā€™s Hotel, Lahore

South Asian Federation of Exchanges (SAFE) holds sixth Pakistan IPO Summit in partnership with the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) at The Faletti's Hotel Lahore.

The Summit was aimed at assisting the potential IPO companies to meet their objective of raising funds from the general public for their future growth strategy and to enable them to learn about steps in bringing their companies to the capital market. This event, in the long run, will benefit our domestic capital markets which will ultimately lead to enhanced economic growth of the country. The interaction between potential IPO companies, the Consultants to the Issues, the IPO Underwriters, Bankers, market players, Corporate Governance experts, PSX and regulators will help in meeting this objective. The continued endeavour on the part of SAFE since 2011 in this context is really commendable.

As the apex regulator of the capital market, the SECP has already made a number of changes in its regulatory framework to stimulate listings as well as to make the listing process more efficient. These changes include review of the entire regulatory framework relating to public offering; introduction of book building process; and development of separate board at PSX for listing and trading of small and medium enterprises. Through the recent revamping of the said regulatory framework, number of the related rule / regulations / guidelines has been reduced from ten to just two and the time period for credit / dispatch of securities has been reduced from 30 days to 10 days. Further, efforts are underway for increasing outreach of the capital market through investor education, extensive marketing and employing innovative ideas such as creation of capital market business hubs which will make all capital market products available under one umbrella.

Message from the Chairman, SECP

I am immensely pleased to learn about the holding of sixth Pakistan IPO Summit, 2016 by the South Asian Federation of Exchanges (SAFE) in partnership with the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX).

Message from the Chairman, PSX

I extend my heartiest welcome to the delegates of the PSX-SAFE IPO conference 2016-2017. Now in it's sixth year, this premier event is already noted for its positive outcomes. In the last few years (since 2014), out of 13 IPO's in the Pakistan Capital Market, the genesis of 8 can be traced directly or indirectly to the previous PSX-SAFE conferences. That is a laudable achievement which deserves recognition.

Message from the MD, PSX

It is a privilege for Pakistan Stock Exchange Limited (PSX) to join hands with South Asian Federation of Stock Exchanges (SAFE) and co-host Pakistan's IPO Summit 2016. This initiative serves as a platform where companies and businesses contemplating to embark upon expansion have a unique opportunity to interact with financers and investors outside the conventional setup of banks and lending institutions. SAFE is playing a pivotal role in the economic growth of the country and development of Pakistan's Capital Market by bringing together these key groups. 

Message from the CEO, AKD Securities Limited

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate South Asian Federation of Exchanges, the Pakistan Stock Exchange and Securities &Exchange Commission of Pakistan for putting such a great show every year and it gives me immense pleasure to be a part of IPO Summits since their inception.
