GC13/4 Primary Market Bulletin No. 6

We are proposing to update the UKLA Knowledge Base with the guidance proposed in Primary Market Bulletin No. 6.

This proposed guidance relates to the Listing Rules, Prospectus Rules and Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

This guidance is likely to be of most relevance issuers of transferable securities (companies/entities) and their advisors (sponsor firms, advisory firms and law firms), investors and other persons who interact with the UKLA.

Background to this consultation

The Knowledge Base is the UKLA’s repository of non-handbook technical commentary that has the status of formal FCA guidance. It consists of a series of short technical and procedural notes (Notes) published in PDF form and arranged by topic.  

We published Primary Market Bulletin (PMB) No. 6 to provide background to the proposed amendments to the Knowledge Base.

Summary of the key issues

We are proposing to amend the  Knowledge Base as follows:

  1. Adding one new Note:
    UKLA/TN/209.1 – Dealing with the FCA in an open and co-operative manner
  2. Revising one existing Note:
    UKLA/TN/306.2 – Reverse takeovers

Cost benefit analysis 

A CBA is not included in this consultation.

We invite your views

Do you have any comments on the Notes we wish to add to the Knowledge Base?
