Does the market capitalisation for dual listed companies include the shares on the global registers?
The market capitalization of dual listed companies include shares that are in the local register only
The ZSE’s market capitalisation calculations differ to mine? Why is this so?
The ZSE market capitalization can differ for the following reasons:
- The ZSE uses the latest prices of securities. In the absence of a recent traded price, either the last traded price or an improved or deteriorated market indication is taken instead. So, if a security has not traded a bid higher or an offer lower, than the last traded price is taken otherwise the last traded price will be used. It is possible that other market participants do not use an improved or deteriorated market condition but stick to the last traded price always.
- The ZSE updates shares in issue as and when they occur, so calculations may differ because of this.
- For dually listed counters, the ZSE uses the number of shares on the local register whilst other participants could use the global number of shares.
- The ZSE uses the number of shares that are freely exchangeable, while other market participants could use other classes of shares which are not freely tradable despite ranking pari-passu with the freely tradable shares.

Is your earnings per share shown as the fully diluted earnings per share or the basic earnings per share?
