CMS Guide to Equity Markets in Europe
The CMS International Capital Markets Group has released the CMS Guide to Equity Markets in Europe, an overview of rules applicable to issuers of listed equities on all major stock exchanges in Europe.
The Guide looks at progress made to date in harmonising EEA rules for issuers of listed equities and highlights where differences remain by providing a summary of the eligibility criteria and continuing obligations applicable to issuers whose shares have, or will have, a primary listing on each of the main markets in Europe, both regulated and non-regulated.
The CMS Guide to Equity Markets in Europe was originally published in 2007 and is intended to help market participants decide which market is best suited to a particular issuer of equity securities. In this second edition, the equity markets in Budapest, Moscow, Prague, Vienna and Warsaw have been added, along with a section providing an overview of relevant US securities laws for European offerings.
