Your situation

You represent a bank, insurer, a company or an issuer, and are an offerer of securities or investments. You are therefore obliged, pursuant to Sec. 24 Capital Markets Act (KMG), to notify your planned issues to the new-issue calendar as early as possible.

Within the scope of the notification to the new-issue calendar, information on the prospectus must be sent to the Notification Office pursuant to the KMG at the OeKB or information on exemptions from the prospectus obligation.

Further offers of the same securities or investments do not have to be notified.

Information of the CMA notification office on the
Launch of the ESMA notification portal in accordance with the Prospectus Regulation and
the related changes to notifications under Section 24 of the Austrian Capital Markets Act
(December 2020)

Background:

The notification portal of the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) under Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 (Prospectus Regulation, PVO) and the delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/979 became operational in December 2020. National competent authorities (NCAs) are required to submit to the ESMA notification portal for this purpose all data required under the delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/979 regarding issues for which they have approved prospectuses (classification data). To this end, the Financial Market Authority (FMA) uses, inter alia, the issue-related data reported to the issuance calendar of the CMA Notification Office. The Notification Office has adjusted the reporting data according to the requirements of the ESMA notification portal.

The following information is intended to give offerers who report their issues to the CMA Notification Office's issuance calendar pursuant to Section 24 of the Austrian Capital Market Act a simple overview of which of their offerings are covered by the changes and which offerings remain unaffected:

Notifications or offers affected by the amendments

Only offers of securities issued under a prospectus previously approved by the FMA under the Prospectus Regulation are affected by the amendments.

The main amendments are:

  • Changes to the notification data according to ESMA classification

The reporting form of the CMA Notification Office has been adapted accordingly for reporting these offers.

  • Omission of the filing of Final Terms with the FMA

Furthermore, final terms relating to offers made under a base prospectus are deemed to have been filed with the FMA once they have been uploaded to the CMA Notification Office in the course of a notification. In this case, it is no longer necessary to separately file the Final Terms with the FMA.

Notifications or offers not affected by the amendments

For all other notifications of offers, i.e. for all offers not made under a prospectus approved by the FMA under the Prospectus Regulation, there will be no changes compared to the previous reporting system under Article 24 of the Austrian Capital Markets Act (exemption: data field "related prospectus ID" was inserted). This includes offers notified from other countries, offers exempt from prospectus requirements and offers issued under a CMA prospectus.

Further information

Further information can be found on the homepage of the CMA Online Notification Office and Financial Market Authority (FMA) 

Your advantages:

You can comply with your notification obligation in a way that suits you.

You can issue fully automatic notifications via the OeKB XML interface and, in doing so, minimise your efforts.

You can apply for ISIN over the same XML interface and therefore only have to implement the system once.
