For listing a company on the Alternate Investment Market (AIM), David and George would not have to follow stringent requirements as required in the London Stock Exchange (LSE). They would not need to have a minimum number of shares held in the public, whereas a minimum of 25% of shares need to be held in public hands when required to be listed on the LSE (Pwchk.com, 2014). For AIM listing, they would not need any trading record requirement in the past, but tin the LSE a three year trading requirement is required. They would require prior shareholder approval only for reverse takeovers and fundamental disposals, whereas in the LSE, prior shareholder approval is required for reverse takeovers, disposals, related party transactions, and significant transactions which includes significant takeovers. They would not require the admission documents to be pre-vetted by the LSE, but in the LSE pre-vetting of admission documents is required by the FSA. David and George will require to have a nominated advisor and broker at all times, while in the LSE a sponsor is needed in significant transactions and for new applicants. They would not require any type of market capitalisation before listing, but in the LSE it is mandatory to have a market capitalisation of £700,000 (London Stock exchange, 2010). They would require appropriate corporate governance measures which will be advised by the nominated advisor, and in the LSE it will be needed to comply with the Combined Code and if they do not follow, they need a valid explanation for not adhering to the Code.
