Market Abuse Regulation

Author: David Robinson, Avram Kelman, Nigel Gordon

The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) came into force on 3 July 2016. The most significant changes to the law for Main Market and AIM companies arising from MAR relate to:

  • the disclosure regime as regards inside information;
  • the requirement to maintain insider lists;
  • the disclosure of transactions by persons discharging managerial responsibilities and closely associated persons;
  • the introduction of mandatory close period rules; and
  • new rules on market soundings.

This note briefly summarises the above changes as well as the impact of MAR specifically on AIM companies.
