BSE commenced the SME platform on March 2012. In over two-year period, BSE has achieved more than 90 per cent market share helping Indian SMEs create a market capitalisation of more than $ 1 billion. Average IPO size on BSE SME is close to Rs 9 crore per issue.

As of date, additional 14 companies are in the process of listing on BSE SME platform.

BSE will continue to strive to help Indian SME and large cap companies to raise funds with its innovative and market leading E-IPO platform as well as the fastest trading system in India with 200 micro seconds response time,” BSE MD and CEO Ashish Chauhan said.
