The FCA has published a consultation paper regarding changes to delaying disclosure of inside information in order to make the FCA Handbook consistent with ESMA's guidelines. The ESMA guidelines set out a non-exhaustive and indicative list of legitimate interests of issuers for delaying the disclosure of inside information and of situations in which the delay of disclosure of inside information is likely to mislead the public. The FCA has notified ESMA of its intention to comply with the ESMA guidelines (and the ESMA guidelines on market soundings). Comments are invited by 6 January 2017.
