New requirement for all issuers operating on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange

Arendt & Medernach S.A. Published 11.08.2017

On 10 August 2017 the Luxembourg Stock Exchange announced that all domestic and foreign issuers operating on the regulated market (Bourse de Luxembourg) or on the multilateral trading facility (Euro MTF) of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange must provide their legal entity identifier (“LEI”) codes to the Luxembourg Stock Exchange before 15 September 2017.

Issuers are invited to check the ongoing validity of their LEI codes with the local operating unit (LOU). Issuers are requested to send their LEI codes by email to the Luxembourg Stock Exchange at: bolide@bourse.lu.

Please refer to our first newsflash (click here) on how to obtain an LEI code published on 6 October 2016 (but please note that, contrary to the new requirement, which applies to all issuers, the obligation to provide an LEI code in 2016 only concerned issuers with Luxembourg as home Member State for purposes of the Luxembourg law of 11 January 2008 on transparency requirements for issuers).
