Report Buy-back and Stabilisation Transactions  

Buy-back Programmes 

Article 5 of MAR requires issuers seeking to carry out trading in their own shares as part of a buy-back programme, to report to the Central Bank certain information relating to such transactions, in order to benefit from the exemption from prohibitions against market abuse. 

Such reports should be sent to the Central Bank no later than the end of the seventh daily market session following the date of their execution.

Reports to the Central Bank of all transactions relating to such buy-back programmes, as detailed in the regulatory technical standards should be sent to buybackstabilisation@centralbank.ie.

Stabilisation Measures

Article 5 of MAR also requires details of stabilisation transactions in securities and associated instruments to be notified to the Central Bank by issuers, offerors, or entities undertaking the stabilisation, whether or not they act on behalf of the issuer or the offeror.

Reports to the Central Bank of all transactions relating to such stabilisation measures should be sent to buybackstabilisation@centralbank.ie.

The issuer, the offeror and any entity undertaking the stabilisation measures, as well as the persons acting on their behalf, must appoint one among them as a central point of contact with the Central Bank.
