The President of a SME regional association NERLEI, Jorge Santos, rang the closing bell to commemorate the signature of a protocol of cooperation and partnership aiming to draw new companies to the Exchange, namely to the Alternext. This protocol will enable NYSE Euronext Lisbon to identify the NERLEI members interested in the capital markets, while the Association will present the Exchange as an alternative financing source. Joining the Alternext market may be a simplified way for the Portuguese SMEs to enter the capital markets in order to obtain financing, diversify their shareholder structure or issue debt securities. Set up in May 2005, Alternext combines admission requirements that meet the needs of SMEs, and provides the investor with high standards of transparency and protection.
