Promoting market data

The number of subscribers to viewing trading in real time via the Exchange’s website makes up 161.
In August 2017 the Exchange’s Board of Directors for purposes of optimizing operating and administrative costs took a decision to liquidate the Information agency of financial markets “Irbis” LLP (hereinafter in this section — the Agency) and hand over information dissemination functions from the Agency to the Exchange. The switching of the Agency’s subscribers and the IRIS Finance software to KASE’s operation was completed in 2018. As a result, 21 companies subscribed to KASE’s information services. On December 24, 2018 the Exchange officially announced the liquidation of the Agency.
In the year under review KASE launched an information product called “Corporate events”, including information on events like meetings of shareholders, dividend payout, redemption, repurchase, offering, splitting, default, changes in the structure of shareholders etc.
