SINGAPORE, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Singapore Exchange Ltd kicked off a public consultation on Thursday to allow companies to list with dual-class share structures.
SGX, which has seen a slump in initial public offers (IPOs) in recent years, said the two-month long public consultation will look into admission criteria and safeguards against possible risks.
"If we collectively do this right... (dual-class share structures) could radically change the business landscape, create jobs and transform our economy," SGX head of equities and fixed income Chew Sutat told a news conference.
