The Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) could force companies to delist if they will not comply with the minimum 7.5% free float regulation soon. This regulation was designed in an effort to boost market liquidity and raise trade volume on the IDX. There remain nine companies that are yet to comply with the minimum free float regulation. IDX General Director Tito Sulistio said he still waits for these nine companies to adjust their share composition to the new rule and therefore invites these companies to send their plans to the IDX. Sulistio warned that if the nine companies will not comply with the free float rule, then the maximum penalty would be a forced delisting from the Indonesia Stock Exchange.
