1. Supportive public market environment for smaller growth companies in the USD50m to USD1bn equity value range

2. Extensive participation in small and micro-cap public companies from well-known institutional investors

3. Lower cost of getting listed, maintaining a listing and lower litigation risk as evidenced by third party data
