Matched Bargain Facility

Ultima NewCo's Matched Bargain Facility allows investors to trade unlisted shares off-market.. Our Matched Bargain Facility is a mechanism for the exchange of shares where buyers' and sellers' price expectations match, enabling shareholders to buy or sell shares in companies that are not currently listed on a regulated market.

Please note that as shares are not admitted to trading on a regulated market, there may be a significant delay before any transactions in these shares are completed, as there may not be sufficient demand or supply from buyers or sellers. This also means that it may be difficult to adequately assess the value of any investment in the shares. If you have any doubts about whether to act, you should seek advice from an appropriately qualified financial advisor.

Important Information

Shares that are not admitted to trading on a regulated market can carry additional risks and may prove more difficult to trade than listed securities. There may be a significant delay before any transactions in these shares are completed, as there may not be sufficient demand or supply from buyers or sellers. This also means that it may be difficult to adequately assess the value of any investment in the shares. Company Information regarding these types of investments may not be as readily available as listed shares. If you have any doubts regarding the merits or suitability of these investments, you should seek professional advice from a qualified financial advisor.

Investors need to be aware that past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. The amount you invest can fall in value, including the income you derive from investments, and you may lose some or all of the amount you have invested

 

Advantages

  • Time efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional liquidity options;
  • Liquidity is enabled via a matched bargain, auction-based secondary market dealing facility;
  • Single auction price for buyers and sellers - no price spread;
  • Bespoke solution that allows for selection of market type and auction calendar to maximise liquidity and retain control;
  • Companies listed on a Market Bargain Facility have an increased corporate profile and access to a deep distribution channel.

Marketability - illiquidity

Because there needs to be a buyer for every seller, and vice versa, the marketability of shares which are traded on a matched bargain basis can be poor. In other words, you may not be able to buy when you want to buy, and if you own shares you may not be able to sell when you want to sell. This is known as illiquidity, and is a very negative attribute.

Shares traded on the London Stock Exchange are more liquid because they are traded either on the order book (SETS for the very largest companies) or on the quote book (SEAQ).
