The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published an updated version of its Q&A on Market Abuse Regulation (MAR). ESMA has added answers on the following questions:

  • How should permission to trade in a closed period, which may be granted in certain circumstances to persons discharging managerial responsibilities (PDMR) in accordance with Article 19(12) of the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR), be considered in the context of Article 14 of MAR?
  • Are the types of “transaction” by a PDMR prohibited during a closed period under Article 19(11) of MAR the same as those types of transaction subject to the notification requirements set out under Article 19(1) of MAR?
