On December 20, 2013, NASDAQ OMX Stockholm AB announced that it will take an initiative to ensure more transparency regarding legal differences between listed issuers with different jurisdictions that may have an impact on the minority shareholder rights. As a result, NASDAQ OMX Nordic has decided to implement a new note code in INET that will be used for equities and equivalent financial instruments admitted to trading on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Iceland and the respective First North markets in order to identify any issuer with jurisdiction outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). The note code, FE (‘Foreign non-EEA Entity’), was implemented on July 1, 2014.
The implementation of the new note code has earlier been communicated in the NASDAQ OMX Nordic Surveillance annual report 2013 on January 31, 2014 and the Nordic Surveillance quarterly report January-March 2014 on April 17, 2014.
