Group 7 Created with Sketch.

On 1 February 2024, the European Parliament and the Council reached a provisional agreement on the European EU Commission’s (the “EU Commission”) proposal for a new EU Listing Act, a legislative package initially published 7 December 2022. This legislative package aims to enhance the EU Capital Markets Union. The package consists of a regulation amending the (i) Market Abuse Regulation(1), (ii) Prospectus Regulation(2) and (iii) MiFIR(3), and a directive amending  MiFID II(4). The EU Listing Act seeks to make it easier for new issuers to access the European capital markets by minimising administrative burdens and lowering costs.

The proposed change with the EU Listing Act is still to be finalised and submitted to Member State representatives and the European Parliament for approval. The EU Listing Act is to enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. The proposed amendments to MAR are expected to apply as of 18 months after the date of entry into force(5). The proposed amendments to the Prospectus Regulation are expected to apply as of 15 months after the date of entry into force.(6)

The timeline for implementation and subsequent publication remains uncertain. We will closely follow the development of the finalisation of the EU Listing Act.

In the following, we cover the amendments proposed to MAR and the Prospectus Regulation.
