The Issuer Rules

The rules that apply to issuers with shares, bonds and equity certificates have been restructured to a new web format that is more user-friendly, with better search functionality and provides links to relevant acts, regulations and other publications. The rules have not been changed in connection with the introduction of the new format.

This new solution will make Oslo Børs’ interpretations of the rules and its practice more accessible. Relevant text from stock exchange circulars has been incorporated either as new or extended guidance text, and references to relevant cases in the Oslo Børs Decisions and Statements documents as well as to cases considered by the Stock Exchange Appeals Committee etc. have been included in the form of links. The new guidance text on the issuer rules has been prepared in collaboration with Advokatfirmaet BAHR AS based on a review of the circulars and the Decisions and Statements.

The Issuer Rules for Oslo Børs are adopted by Oslo Børs pursuant to section 12-2 of the Securities Trading Act and section 12-1 (3) of the Securities Trading Regulations and set out the rights and obligations for issuers of shares, equity certificates and bonds that either are listed on Oslo Børs or for which such listing has been applied. Corresponding rules apply for issuers of shares that either are listed on Oslo Axess or for which such listing has been applied.

Oslo Børs has further adopted rules for issuers of shares and equity certificates that either are admitted to trading on Merkur Market or for which such admission has been applied, and for issuers of bonds that either are registered on Nordic ABM or for which such registration has been applied.

The rules include relevant statutory rules and regulations, as well as further elaborations on these and specific provisions adopted by Oslo Børs, enabling the user to mainly adhere to this set of rules as regards the obligations towards Oslo Børs.
