Suspension, cancellation or restoration by overseas exchange or authority

LR 5.5.2R

An issuer must inform the FCA if its listing has been suspended, cancelled or restored by an overseas exchange or overseas authority.

LR 5.5.3G
  1. (1)

    The FCA will not automatically suspend, cancel or restore the listing of securities at the request of an overseas exchange or overseas authority (for example, if listing of a listed3 issuer's securities are suspended, cancelled or restored on its home exchange).

  2. (2)

    The FCA will not normally suspend the listing of securities where there is a trading halt for the security on its home exchange.

  3. (3)

    If a listed issuer3 requests a suspension, cancellation or restoration of the listing of its securities, after a suspension, cancellation or restoration on its home exchange, the issuer should send to the FCA written confirmation:

    1. (a)

      that the suspension, cancellation or restoration of listing on its home exchange has become effective; or

    2. (b)

      if it has not yet become effective, of the time and date it is proposed to become effective.

  4. (4)

    If an overseas exchange or competent authority requests the FCA to suspend, cancel or restore the listing of securities, the FCA will, wherever practical, contact the issuer or its sponsor before it suspends, cancels or restores the listing. Therefore, issuers are encouraged to contact the FCA at the same time as they contact their home exchange.

  5. (5)

    If the FCA is unable to contact the issuer or sponsor, it will suspend, cancel or restore the listing of the securities when it is satisfied that the listing of the relevant securities has been, or will be, suspended, cancelled or restored on their home exchange.
