On 11 June 2020, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) issued a public statement confirming that it had renewed its decision to temporarily require the holders of net short positions in shares traded on an EU regulated market to notify the relevant Member State national competent authority (NCA) if the position exceeds 0.1% of the issued share capital. ESMA considers that its renewed measure will maintain the ability of NCAs to deal with any threats to market integrity, orderly functioning of markets and financial stability at an early stage, allowing them and ESMA to timely address such threats in case of signs of market stress.
