In this second part of this 2-piece article, our partner Anne-Marie Malmberg focuses on the EU Growth prospectus, (“EU kasvuesite”) which is a new term introduced to the capital markets by the new Prospectus Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 (“Prospectus Regulation”).
Should I recommend the use of standard contract terms and templates in contracting for ICT services? The fact is that some standard terms are used in almost every case in one way or another. The same issues are relevant regardless of the origin of the standard.
On 21 July 2019, the new Prospectus Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 (“Prospectus Regulation”) replacing the Prospectus Directive 2003//71/EY entered into force in full. The new articles allowing e.g. issue new shares to public without a prospectus when aggregate issue price was no more than MEUR 8 during a period of 12 months (compared to previous equivalent limit of MEUR 5) were already implemented effective as at 1 January 2019. The full application of the Prospectus Regulation means that EU prospectuses which are filed to the Finnish Financial Supervision Authority (“FIN-FSA”) now have to be drafted and approved under the new regulations.
We will continue our blog on SPAs and private M&A deals next, but in the meanwhile I take a step to the public M&A world and write a few words about exclusivity. This is often a hotly debated issue, but the main principle and aim of the clause are clear.
