Scale is a private-law stock exchange segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange within the legally defined open market . After the failed Neuer Markt , it is a renewed attempt to establish a market segment for growth stocks in Frankfurt . The focus of Scale should be on the growth financing of small and medium-sized companies . The name "Scale" emerged from a public competition with 550 name suggestions. All securities listed in the Scale are also included in the Basic Board segment .

The performance of all shares listed in the Scale is represented by the Scale All Share index . Like the DAX , MDAX and TecDAX indices , the Scale All Share is also available as a price index (ISIN DE000A2BLGX8 ) and - adjusted for dividend payments - as a performance index (ISIN DE000A2BLGY6 ). The 30 most liquid shares of the Scale are shown in the Scale 30 index (price index DE000A2J0PW5 , performance index DE000A2GYJT2 ).


The new stock exchange segment replaced the Entry Standard founded in 2005 on March 1, 2017 . It initially comprised 38 of the 143 stocks previously listed in the Entry Standard as well as 9 bonds. The rest were initially transferred to the Basic Board catchment segment, also a sub-segment of the open market. You can stay there or switch to one of the other segments at the request of the issuer.

On March 13, 2017, Deutsche Börse launched the Scale All Share Index. It was calculated retrospectively to March 1st, starting with a score of 1000. On February 7th, 2018 the Scale 30 index was added.

The first IPO in Scale was the new issue of the chemical company IBU-tec advanced materials AG on March 30, 2017. At the end of 2017 the index comprised 48 stocks.

Inclusion requirements and follow-up obligations

For listing in the Scale segment, higher admission and follow-up obligations apply than in the Entry Standard. This is to prevent another series of scandals from dubious IPOs such as in the Neuer Markt and the Entry Standard. Among other things, the companies must have existed for at least two years and meet at least three of the following four criteria:

The costs for admission and listing in the Scale are many times higher than in the Entry Standard.


On August 2, 2018, the scale segment consisted of the following companies:
