On 17 September 2020, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) announced that it was renewing its decision to temporarily require the holders of net short positions in shares traded on an EU regulated market to notify the relevant national competent authority if the position reaches or exceeds 0.1% of the issued share capital. The measure applies from 18 September 2020 for a period of three months. The decision extends the measure taken on 11 June 2020 and will expire on 18 December 2020. Consequently, net short positions of 0.1% and above held until that date have to be notified to the relevant competent authority no later than 15:30 CET on the next trading day.
