On 23 June 2016, the UK electorate voted narrowly in favour of the UK leaving the European Union. The result of this vote will have broad and wide reaching economic and political consequences, and a major impact on businesses with operations in the UK/EU or that issue securities in the EU or contract with EU parties. This program will provide an overview and discussion of the possible effect of a so-called “Brexit” on EU issuances of securities and transactions in other financial instruments. In particular, we will discuss the impact of a Brexit on:

  • the continued applicability of the Prospectus Directive and other EU securities regulation;
  • access to the EU “passport” for multi-jurisdictional EU offerings;
  • the “home member state” of a non-EU securities issuer;
  • disclosure “best practice”;
  • the EU Capital Markets Union, including the proposed new Prospectus Regulation (“PDIII”).
