Notification of implementation of Nordic Main Market Rulebook for Issuers of Shares to apply in Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Sweden
March 6, 2020
Nasdaq Nordic (the “Exchange”) has decided to implement a harmonized Nordic Main Market Rulebook for Issuers of Shares (“Main Market Rulebook”).
The Main Market Rulebook will replace the following Rulebooks:
- Nasdaq Stockholm Rulebook for Issuers (shares section only),
- Nasdaq Helsinki Rules of the Exchange (Chapter 2, Share),
- Nasdaq Copenhagen rules for issuers of shares; and
- Nasdaq Iceland Rules for Issuers of Financial Instruments (share section only)
(individually the “Rulebook” and collectively the “Rulebooks”)
The Main Market Rulebook consists of two parts as follows:
- Common part for all Exchanges (as defined in the Contents, the “Common part”); and
- Additional provisions for each Exchange (the “Supplements”).
The Main Market Rulebook will enter into force on 1 May 2020. For Nasdaq Helsinki, the new Main Market Rulebook will enter into force on 11 May 2020.
The Nasdaq Nordic Member Rules contain conditions for membership and rules for trading on the regulated markets.
The rules are the same in all First North markets, except for a few, smaller differences due to national law.
