Ad hoc communications – Publications in compliance
If a company has successfully completed an IPO, it is important for a listed company to keep all stakeholder groups regularly informed on company development. Depending on the stock exchange segment, this results in a large number of publication and reporting requirements for a company. These include so-called ad hoc communications. According to Article 17 of the Market Abuse Regulation introduced in July 2016, a company must immediately publish an internal situation if it could significantly affect the performance of the share price. It is necessary to clarify in advance whether and when internal information is required to be published. Lawyers are also often consulted to determine this.
Observing the requirements of the Market Abuse Regulation for ad hoc compliance
Ad hoc publicity has been intensified by the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR). Issuers are obliged to publish ad hoc communications throughout Europe and to provide them on the company’s website for a period of five years. In addition to the companies admitted to regulated markets (such as Prime Standard and General Standard in Frankfurt, Prime Market and Standard Market in Vienna), transparency obligations apply or the first time to issuers across multilateral trading systems and organized trading systems across the EU f. It is important to note that all financial instruments covered by the MAR are affected by the ad hoc publicity obligation.
