SA Corporate’s CEO, Rory Mackey, said: “The Board and management at SA Corporate are committed to constantly reviewing the use and allocation of the available resources to ensure maximum effectiveness for our shareholders. Our listing on A2X is an extension of this commitment as it gives our investors the opportunity to not only capture the benefits of narrower spreads and lower exchange fees, but to also source additional liquidity.”
