MAR and AIM

Mon 18 Jul 2016

The London Stock Exchange has made changes to the Aim Rules to take account of the new regulations being introduced by the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

To date AIM companies had not been subject to the provisions of the EU Market Abuse Directive (MAD) which applied to listed companies.  However, as from 3 July 2016 this changed with the introduction of the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) which replaced the directive in its entirety.  Unlike MAD, MAR applies to financial instruments admitted to all multilateral trading facilities including AIM.  

This briefing provides a summary of the key MAR issues for AIM companies.
