The EU Regulation n° 596/2014 on market abuse, commonly known as the “Market Abuse Regulation” or “MAR”, aims to prevent market abuse by defining the rules on trading in a company’s shares by its insiders as well as the disclosure of inside information, and by sanctioning market manipulation. Barco has translated these rules into its Market Abuse Prevention Policy. This policy summarizes the obligations regarding market abuse imposed on Barco as an issuer, its directors and executive management, as well as persons closely associated with them, and certain employees and other persons carrying out activities for Barco.
One of these obligations relates to the disclosure of so-called insider trading. The directors and executive managers as well as persons closely associated with them must inform the Compliance Officer and the FMSA of every transaction in financial instruments related to Barco and conducted on their own account within three business days unless the aggregate value thereof does not exceed the amount of EUR 5.000 per calendar year.
Below is a quarterly overview of the reported transactions per category (directors, executive members, employees).
