Pan African CEO, Cobus Loots commented, “Pan African has a track record of pursuing innovation and new technologies to generate efficiencies, compelling returns and long-term performance, and our listing on A2X is another example of this. Our investors will now enjoy the benefits offered by A2X, including added liquidity, lower exchange fees and narrower spreads.”
Kevin Brady, CEO of A2X Markets said, “We welcome Pan African to A2X. We will help them increase value for shareholders through lower exchange fees and price improvement as well as provide their investors with more choice in trading venues.”
Pan African joins mining companies Exxaro, Tharisa and African Rainbow Minerals, which are already listed on A2X. This listing will boost A2X’s combined market capitalisation to about R5 trillion.
