Upon the entry into force of the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) on 1 March 2021, Commission Regulation 2016/1052 on buy-back programmes and stabilisation measures will also enter into force in Norway. This will replace Commission Regulation 2273/2003. Oslo Børs has been appointed to supervise compliance with the conditions for buy-back programmes and stabilisation measures, cf. section 17-1 of the Securities Trading Regulations.
Oslo Børs has published updated guidelines for buy-back programmes and price stabilisation pursuant to MAR. These will apply from 1 March 2021 and includes, among other things, templates for publication and reporting of trades made in connection with buy-back programmes and price stabilization.
