ECOVIS ap­proved as Cor­po­rate Ad­vi­sor for MSE’s Prospects plat­form

Malta Independent - - BUSINESS -

ECOVIS GRC, part of the ECOVIS Malta group, a firm spe­cial­is­ing in ac­coun­tancy, tax ad­vi­sory, au­dit, le­gal and gov­er­nance ser­vices, has been ap­proved to act as a Cor­po­rate Ad­vi­sor for com­pa­nies list­ing se­cu­ri­ties on the Malta Stock Ex­change’s ‘Prospects’ mar­ket.

‘Prospects’ was launched ear­lier this year with the aim of broad­en­ing fi­nanc­ing op­tions for SMEs by of­fer­ing a more cost-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion for such com­pa­nies look­ing to raise up to €5mil­lion in eq­uity or debt cap­i­tal, and cor­re­spond­ingly in­creas­ing in­vestor ac­cess to in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The new role of Cor­po­rate Ad­vi­sor is in line with the strat­egy be­ing pur­sued by ECOVIS in Malta, which has seen the firm ex­pand­ing its ser­vices in the cor­po­rate fi­nance and cap­i­tal ad­vi­sory area.

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor An­thony Vella ex­plained that as a Cor­po­rate Ad­vi­sor, Ecovis Malta would be in a po­si­tion to “build upon the past of­fer­ings of busi­ness val­u­a­tion and merger and ac­qui­si­tion ad­vice for lo­cal, small, and medium sized busi­nesses, to now pro­vide multi-dis­ci­plinary ad­vice for own­ers look­ing to ex­pand, re­struc­ture or con­sider trans­ac­tion al­ter­na­tives for their com­mer­cial op­er­a­tion”.

He added that “the pos­si­bil­ity of as­sist­ing clients in rais­ing cap­i­tal through the role of Cor­po­rate Ad­vi­sor fits well within our knowhow in the ar­eas of ac­count­ing, le­gal, fi­nance and reg­u­la­tory com­pli­ance. In our ca­pac­ity as Cor­po­rate Ad­vi­sor, we shall be as­sist­ing small and medium sized en­ter­prises to pre­pare for ad­mis­sion to mar­ket list­ing. We will sub­se­quently en­sure that the com­pany main­tains ob­ser­vance with all the ap­pli­ca­ble rules and reg­u­la­tions of cor­po­rate gov­er­nance and trans­parency, for the ben­e­fit and pro­tec­tion of all the stake­hold­ers. “The ECOVIS group in Malta is part of ECOVIS In­ter­na­tional, a global con­sult­ing net­work with its ori­gins in Europe. It is com­posed of more than 4,500 spe­cial­ists op­er­at­ing in over 60 coun­tries, pro­vid­ing ser­vices mainly to mid-sized firms. It’s one-stop-shop con­cept, im­ple­mented on a na­tional ba­sis as well as in­ter­na­tion­ally, en­sures all-round sup­port in le­gal, fis­cal, man­age­rial and ad­min­is­tra­tive is­sues.
