Extension of financial reporting deadlines for listed companies

Find below the latest actions from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) to support listed companies during the coronavirus crisis.

One such measure announced by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in collaboration with the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) and Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), is that listed companies now have 6 months to publish audited annual reports from the end of the financial year. The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has issued a statement on the implications of the Covid-19 pandemic on the deadlines for publishing financial reports which apply to listed issuers under the Transparency Directive. The statement underlines that issuers should keep their investors informed of the expected publication delay and that requirements under the Market Abuse Regulation still apply.

Also the financial supervisory authority CSSF in Luxembourg will not apply a strict enforcement policy with regards to reportings if delays are duly justified. Regarding the use of deadline extension for AIFMD reports, the CSSF expects to be informed by the issuer about its decision to make use of the deadline extension.

In this respect, the supervised entities should contact the CSSF through their usual channels as soon as possible and ahead of reporting deadlines. Also note, that the reporting deadline for normal AIFs and Fund of Funds remains 30 April and 15 May based on the fund strategy.

Please read more on the extension of deadlines for concerned entities according to the new bill of law n°7540 submitted by the Luxembourg Ministry of Finance, summarised by Clifford Chance. Clearly, acarda is able to produce the reports based on raw data in the original time-frame without delay. Our regulatory reporting platform arep and all surrounding systems can be accessed remotely with secured equipment.
