UK Regulator Proposes Changes to IPO Process
16 March 2017
View Client Update
The UK financial services regulator, the FCA, is consulting on the availability of information in the UK IPO process.
Proposed new rules would ensure that the prospectus is published much earlier in the process than is current practice.
The proposals are also designed to facilitate the preparation of “unconnected” analyst research before any “connected” research is released.
The FCA has also raised concerns that some current practices regarding disclosure of information during the IPO process may be inconsistent with the Market Abuse Regulation.
