PLX Investigating ASX Listing: What Investors Should Know
Plexure Group Limited (NZX: PLX) came forward and made an announcement that it intends to investigate undertaking an IPO as well as applying for admission to official list of Australian Securities Exchange (or ASX).
As per the release, this may involve PLX moving its primary listing from NZX to ASX as well as re-classifying its current NZX listing as NZX Foreign Exempt listing, which would allow shares to continue to be quoted on NZX.
