News    ·   25-06-2016

AUTHOR: Diane Bugeja

The Market Abuse Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 ("MAR") enters into force on 3 July 2016. The revised market abuse regime will usher in tougher rules which will require updates to issuers’ internal guidelines and processes. Predominantly, MAR will result in changes to the obligation of issuers to disclose inside information, the reporting of transactions by persons discharging managerial responsibilities and persons closely associated with them, and to the offences of insider dealing and unlawful disclosure of inside information. This briefing note provides an overview of the salient changes and obligations, whilst urging issuers to prepare in earnest for the new rules.
