EU law oversees the conditions for the issuance of securities on public markets. The Prospectus legislation, first adopted in 2003 and last revised in 2016, sets out the information to be disclosed in the listing prospectus, which is made available to investors when a company plans to issue shares or securities. It also creates a passport mechanism enabling the prospectus approved by the competent authority in one member state to be valid for public offers and admission to trading of securities in the entire EU. Entities issuing shares on public markets also have to comply with EU market abuse rules.
While most AIFMs and EuVECA fund managers do not usually have to comply with regulated markets and Prospectus requirements, such legislation may be relevant for private equity and venture fund managers when they market their funds on or through capital markets or when they exit a portfolio company via an initial public offering (IPO).
