Israel is one of the most significant countries in the world in terms of the number of companies going public on international stock exchanges. It is one of the largest foreign issuers on the NASDAQ.
In the words of DC Finance's CEO, Denny Chared: "The stifling conditions in the credit market are becoming harder and more and more firms find it difficult to raise the necessary capital from the banking and non-banking systems. In the issue market, only the biggest companies are able to locate available capital resources while many other companies are not able to raise capital or to recycle it.
"At this crucial moment we will examine the firms' alternatives for raising capital in Israel and in the international markets. We will see what is available to the firm, in spite of everything, how and where, and what is the specialists' forecast regarding capital raising in the next months, in Israel and throughout the world."
