Rynek Neuer Markt: droga od sukcesu do porażki / Neuer Markt: from Success to Failure

The aim of the article is to show the functioning of NeuerMarkt and the main factors and reasons of the fall of the German NeuerMarkt. It characterizes the German stock exchange market during 1997–2003. The objective has been achieved with the analysis of the Neuer Markt legal framework, IPO emission requirements, selected (informational) statements demanded from issuers, delisting procedures, and a study of stock indexes. Furthermore Neuer Markt has been evaluated in cross reference with dynamic growth, downward phases and market structure. The main reason behind the termination of the Neuer Markt is theburst of the Internet bubble which contributed to the drastic drop in market share prices. Moreover, scandals around cited companies and tightened entry criteria implemented by the Deutsche Börse had a negative influence on the NeuerMarkt situation. Observations noted in the research can be used in analysis of the alternative markets’ current situation, e.g. the Polish alternative market NewConnect. The article presents the main errors and oversights made during the operation of the functioning which contributed to its fall in 2003. Research of foreign literature, press articles and the Frankfurt Stock Börse publications has been applied.
