Entorno Pre Mercado (EpM), the BME program that accelerates the process of incorporating companies to the BME Scaleup and BME Growth financial markets, has grown with the incorporation today of Armabex as a partner and NZI Helmets as a new company in the program. With these two new incorporations, the Pre-Market Environment, of which six companies have already made the leap to the market, has 22 companies and 26 partners.
ARMABEX, subsidiary of Armanext, is specialized in the process of incorporation of SMEs and SOCIMIs to be listed on the Stock Markets. As a partner of the EpM, it will accompany small and medium-sized companies that are in the Pre-Market program to take the first steps in meeting the requirements of a listed company and learn how to optimize and participate in the advantages offered by the stock markets in their growth and internationalization strategies once they are listed.
For the firm, joining EpM as a partner is the culmination of its service offering to SMEs that want to be listed on the stock market, after more than ten years as registered advisors. They will present the advantages and opportunities of BME Growth and BME Scaleup in this practical training initiative offered by BME to candidate companies.
