Naspers [JSE:NPN] announced on Tuesday that its shares have been approved to trade on the local A2X stock exchange as a secondary listing with effect from December 27, 2018.

The global media giant, which is largest company by market value in Africa and on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, said its primary listing on the JSE would be unaffected. 

A2X, which has been active since October 2017, provides secondary listings for SA companies.

"We are thrilled to welcome Naspers onto the A2X platform, said A2X CEO Kevin Brady. "This is a great endorsement for the merits of a secondary listing."

Naspers CEO Bob van Dijk said in a statement that A2X was one of a growing number of new exchanges that are leveraging technology in an effort to reduce trading costs and increase market transparency.

"We believe our shareholders will appreciate the added choice of trading venues."
