These are a brief overview of ASX Listing Requirements.

All monies from non-affiliated shareholders will be held in an account and used solely for the purposes of ASX Listing. TST will form a Company and will have a Board.

Ongoing Reporting

ASX has certain ongoing reporting requirements. Given that Annual, Monthly and Daily stats are published in TST, this requirement will not be a problem.


TST Advertising

Since 14 October 2009 TST Advertise Page has contained advertising rates for businesses to advertise in TST. Advertisements that appear in TST are through Google Adsense that earns TST 2 cents per click.

Directly advertising through TST enables 100% of revenue to flow into TST.

However, as TST is almost 10 years old and format of content that is published has improved, businesses and single investors will find it better value for money to invest in TST and have TST listed on the ASX.

Media Stock always holds their value on the ASX and TST will provide a good ROI for all shareholders.
