LSE Proposes Special Market for Private Companies, WSJ Reports

  • Private firms would be able to list during a trading window
  • Plan would need regulatory approval, changes to U.K. law

The London Stock Exchange Group has proposed a special market for private companies to trade their shares publicly, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a person familiar with the matter that it didn’t identify, and proposals from the LSE to regulators.

Private firms would be able to list their shares for public trading between one and five days in each trading window -- which could be once a month or once a quarter, or every six months, the newspaper reported.
