- The Australian company is into investment in early and mature enterprises, backed by extensive due diligence and analysis
- The company has been planning to list on a stock exchange in Australia or in some foreign jurisdiction
- For now, in view of uncertain global economic landscape, Chapmans has deferred listing until further notice
Australian company Chapmans Limited -- which is into investment in early stage businesses with special attention to having "larger stakes in fewer businesses" -- has informed that the company has deferred its listing plans "until further notice". Notably, the company has been exploring global stock exchanges for its intended listing of securities.
Among other factors, Chapmans has cited tough economic times -- the global economic activity and the world stock market passing through uncertain phases in the wake of high inflation and expected slowdown -- as the reason behind the decision to postpone listing.
