Disclosure Requirements (Ad Hoc) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange

Disclosure requirement (Ad-hoc disclosure)

Obligation of issuers of securities to immediately report and publish any information that might have a bearing on the price of their securities.

The regulations pertaining to the disclosure requirement are contained in section 15 of the German Securities Trading Act, which states that issuers of securities admitted to the Regulated Market on a German stock exchange are obliged to report all corporate developments that have a sufficiently strong impact on the issuer’s financial situation or its business activities to influence the market price of the security. Securities listed in the Unofficial Regulated Market are exempt from this requirement.

The obligation to release such information without delay is intended to mitigate the abuse of inside information and enhance market transparency. A violation of the disclosure requirement is punishable with a fine.

While the Federal Supervisory Office for Securities Trading (BAFin) is responsible for investigating whether issuers are meeting the disclosure requirement as stipulated in section 15 of the Securities Trading Act, it is the task of the Exchange Operating Board to decide whether the information published requires a temporary suspension of a quotation.

According to section 15, paragraph 1, no. 1 of the Securities Trading Act, the information must be published in the German language in at least one national “Börsenpflichtblatt” (the journal for statutory stock market publications), or via an electronic information dissemination system. Furthermore, companies in Prime Standard are obliged to publish ad-hoc messages in English.

Prior to publication, the information must be communicated directly to BAFin and the Exchange Operating Board of the German exchange where the securities or their derivatives are listed.

*FSE Listings: Note of warning, we have no affiliation to a group misrepresenting the FSE Listings brand called Julius Csurgo, Global Regency, Merger Law Associates, Frankfurt Listings, and other such names. As far as our research has revealed, they appear to charge more and allegedly are slower than our firm at listing, in addition, we are not even sure they can list firms. Several firms have complained they were listed and didn’t even get to trade or clear properly using listings services and contacted us believing us to be the same firm. We believe that in this matter, one should be careful of all firms who do not have the representative Mark Bragg contact you. Our firm listed several companies in April and expects to do this again in May, with over 100 listed to date as a consortium. We are the leaders, competition is only healthy if they are not misrepresenting a brand, therefore, we bring this to your immediate attention that we have no affiliation to these firms. We are the only FSE Listings Inc, contact Mark Bragg today.
