Our Legal and Corporate Finance Expert Groups contributed to our response to the European Commission public consultation on the review of the Prospectus Directive. Our proposals are designed to help small and mid-size quoted companies to raise finance more efficiently and effectively, whilst ensuring a high-level of investor protection, and include:

  1. Introducing the concept of an IPO and Secondary Public Offer in the Prospectus Directive
  2. Creating a Proportionate Prospectus for Secondary Public Offers on regulated markets
  3. Ensuring that the Proportionate Prospectus for Secondary Offers applies to all types of secondary public offer
  4. Addressing the process of the national competent authority approving a prospectus
  5. Increasing the thresholds under which a prospectus does not have to be produced
  6. Exempting offers carried out under the Takeover Regime from the prospectus regime
  7. Creating a specific prospectus regime for SME Growth Markets
