How MAR will affect AIM companies: 3 July 2016

This paper looks in detail at:

  • The two parallel regimes, under MAR and the AIM Rules for Companies, now applicable to AIM-listed companies as regards "inside information"/"price sensitive information" and its disclosure
  • the requirements for AIM-listed companies to maintain insider lists
  • the impact of MAR on transactions in shares of their AIM-listed company by "persons discharging managerial responsibilities" and their "persons closely associated", and the implications for an AIM-listed company's share dealing code.

The paper concludes with a checklist of issues for AIM-listed companies to consider in the light of MAR to the extent not already addressed.
