The amendments in Oslo Børs’ rules for issuers comprise updates of references and certain non-material adjustments in connection with the repeal of the Stock Exchange Act and the Stock Exchange Regulations and amendments to the Securities Trading Act and the Securities Trading Regulations.
In the Bond rules and the ABM rules, the deadline for publication of the annual report for Norwegian municipalities (Nw. kommuner og fylkeskommuner) has been extended from four to six months after the end of the preceding financial year. The amendment will enter into effect with respect to the publication of the annual report for 2018. No amendments have been made to the deadline for publication of the annual report for other issuers.
The Bond rules section 8.4 has been amended to clarify the exchange’s authority to impose violation charge to issuers that are subject to the exchange’s supervision, which publishes the annual report or half-year report after the deadlines set out in the Bond rules.
The ABM rules are amended such that an application for registration must contain LEI (Legal Entity Identifier) code, CFI (Classification of Financial Instrument) code and FISN (Financial Instrument Short Name) code unless such information have been provided to the Oslo Stock Exchange previously.
