EBF responds on MAR implementing measures: EBF has responded to ESMA's discussion paper on possible implementing measures under the forthcoming Market Abuse Regulation (MAR). It highlights the importance of market sounding, which should be recognised by not restricting the hours in which it can take place and allowing wall-crossing arrangements so that relations between issuer and investors are not affected. It also considers that the requirements to avoid delays of public disclosures of inside information may turn out to be disproportionate. (Source: EBF Response on MAR Implementing Measures)
