On 15 December 2020, the FCA updated its webpage regarding the notification and disclosure of net short positions. As previously blogged HM Treasury intends to lay a statutory instrument to amend the notification threshold under Article 5(2) of the Short Selling Regulation from 0.2% to 0.1% of the issued share capital of an issuer. This change will come into force on 1 February 2021. This means that from 1 February 2021 the notification threshold for issued share capital of a company that has shares admitted to trading on a UK trading venue (UK Regulated Market and UK MTF) will be 0.1%. From the end of the transition period until the statutory instrument comes into effect on 1 February 2021, the notification threshold for issued share capital of a company that has shares admitted to trading on a UK trading venue will be 0.2%. However, during this period position holders will continue to be able to make notifications to the FCA at the lower 0.1% threshold if they wish to do so.
