Ad hoc Reporting and Supplements under the Financial Services Act

The Financial Services Act and its implementing ordinance require prospectuses to be supplemented in case a new price-sensitive fact has arisen between the time of approval of the prospectus and final completion of a public offer or opening of trading on a trading venue. Such supplements have to be approved by the competent Reviewing Body, unless the information containing the price-sensitive fact is included in an ad hoc notice, in which case the supplement can be merely filed with the Reviewing Body without approval. The revision of the ad hoc rules per 1 July 2021 abolished the per se reportable facts, which has an impact on issuers dealing with certain price-sensitive information prior or around the time of an issuance of securities.
