We have published a new briefing note and checklist of initial practical steps for Official List companies to consider in relation to the Market Abuse Regulation which comes into effect from July 3, 2016. The new regime will involve a number of changes for Official List companies, including in relation to areas such as disclosure of inside information to the market, maintenance of insider lists and disclosure of/restrictions on dealings by directors and persons discharging managerial responsibilities, and companies will need to consider the implications of the new rules, in particular in relation to their systems and controls.
