On 23 March 2022, the FCA published Primary Market Bulletin 39.
In this edition, the FCA have announced the removal of the temporary measures that were imposed in 2020 which allowed delayed annual and interim financial reporting. The FCA will also be rescinding the temporary measures in regards to working capital statements and general meetings. These measures were introduced during COVID-19 however, the FCA believe that practice has evolved sufficiently so that issuers and their advisors are now able to return to previous practices and methods. These temporary reliefs will no longer be available after 28 June 2022.
