The decision to pursue a secondary listing on A2X will not impact Pepkor’s primary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), ensuring continuity and stability for existing shareholders while broadening its investor base.


Joining the ranks of other retailers like Dis-Chem, Mr Price, and Clicks on A2X, the exchange’s CEO, Kevin Brady, expressed enthusiasm about Pepkor’s listing, highlighting the mutual advantages it presents for the company and its stakeholders.


The listing of Pepkor on A2X adds to the exchange’s growing roster of 181 instruments, contributing to a combined market capitalization of approximately R9.1-trillion. Notable companies such as Absa, Naspers, and Standard Bank have already leveraged A2X’s platform.


Since its inception in 2017, A2X has emerged as a formidable player in South Africa’s financial ecosystem, fostering competition amongst other things.
