New prospectus regulation mark-up
June 6, 2017
On the 16th of May the European Council adopted the new Prospectus Regulation. This will bring many changes and some improvements to the prospectus regime. Kerman & Co has teamed up with eppf (eppf is a new neutral infrastructure that provides investors access to debt private placement) and prepared a unique unofficial comparison report between the new regulation and the current prospectus directive and prospectus regulation.
This comparison report details the textual and also contextual changes that are to come, and which will enter into force gradually over the next 12 to 24 months.
We hope that this report will make your life as capital markets experts easier. Watch out for further updates and exciting developments or reach out directly to Robert Koller at Kerman & Co.
This unofficial comparison between (a) the proposed New Prospectus Regulation1 and (b) the Prospectus Directive2, as amended, and Prospectus Regulation3, as amended, has been prepared as a reference tool to illustrate the proposed changes to the existing regulatory requirements relating to prospectuses.
