JSE regulatory services

PwC Corporate Finance can act as a link between the JSE Limited (JSE) and listed companies. We are registered as a JSE Limited accredited Sponsor and a Designated Adviser to the Alternative Exchange (“Altx”). 

We provide corporate finance and regulatory advice to companies that are listed or contemplating a listing on the Main Board of the JSE. As a sponsor, alongside your corporate adviser, we provide advice on markets/exchanges, regulatory authorities and issues as well as project management of transactions.

We remain independent from trading, equity analysts, lending and private equity activities, thus being favourably positioned regarding truly independent advice. We are also able to leverage off our vast regional and international network.

  • Regulatory and Statutory advice
  • Constant advice to directors and company secretaries on:
    • the Listing Requirements of the JSE
    • the Takeover  Regulation Panel rules 
    • Companies Act
    • Corporate Governance
  • Transaction support
  • Drafting of all required documentation for the regulatory environment
  • A communication channel between our clients and the JSE
  • Management of the continuing obligations of a listed company by way of a dedicated sponsor desk


IPO services include:

  • Advice on the most appropriate market/exchanges for capital raising
  • Valuations
  • Timing and tactics
  • Preparation of prospectus and investor presentations
  • Liaising with regulatory authorities on all regulatory issues
  • Co-ordination of other advisers (eg brokers, lawyers, reporting accountants etc).
