As of 3 July 2016, Technopolis complies with EU Regulation on Market Abuse (EU N:o 596/2014) and other related EU-regulation which supplement it as well as the Insider Guidelines provided by Nasdaq Helsinki Oy as the minimum level regulation in insider matters.
The Company has defined the members of the Board of Directors, the CEO and other members of the Group Management Team as persons discharging managerial responsibilities (“managerial persons”). The managerial persons and their closely associated persons shall each notify the Company and the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority of the transactions conducted on their own account relating to equity or debt financial instruments of the Company or derivative instruments linked thereto without delay and at the latest within three (3) business days after the transaction in question was conducted. The notifications to the Company and the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority shall be made at https://www.technopolis.fi/en/about-us/investors/share-information/transaction-notification/ by following the instructions provided therein.
As of 3 July 2016, the Company shall publish the transactions of the managerial persons and their closely associated persons as a stock exchange release within the same deadline of three (3) business days and, thereafter, such information will also be available on the Company’s website (Stock Exchange Releases). In addition, the previous public Register on Insiders Subject to Declaration Requirement and their closely associated persons has been updated up to 2 July 2016 and is available on the Company’s website.
Furthermore, the Company has defined certain other persons on the basis of their tasks in the Company as core persons acting in the informative core of the Company. Typically, such core persons include persons preparing interim reports and financial statement bulletins and persons who are responsible for finance, financial reporting or communication and those having access to such information.
Managerial persons and the core persons shall not trade or conduct other transactions, on their own account or for the account of a third party, directly or indirectly, relating to the Company’s financial instruments during the period of 30 calendar days before the publication of the interim report or the year-end report including the publication date (the so called closed period).
Furthermore, the Company maintains project or event specific insider registers on all persons who take part of planning and preparation of an insider project or event, for example mergers and acquisitions, and who have access to inside information (“project-specific insiders”). A project-specific insider shall not trade or conduct other transactions relating to the Company’s financial instruments until the expiration or publication of that project.
