NOTE: Conditional trading takes place for a few days between the official IPO and full listing. Shares can be bought during this period and held indefinitely due to trading transitioning from conditional to full trading. Conditional trading concludes with the issuance and allocation of the subscribed GDRs and Common Shares into investors’ accounts at the end of the IPO.

The unconditional trading on AIX (Shares and the GDRs), Kazakhstan Stock Exchange (Shares), and London Stock Exchange (GDRs) will commence on February 15.

The Astana International Exchange was established in 2017 at the Astana International Financial Center (AIFC). AIX shareholders include AIFC, the Shanghai Stock Exchange, the Silk Road Fund, and NASDAQ, which also provides the AIX trading platform. The Exchange operates on the base of English law.
