This information must be provided by the proposed acquirer at the time of the initial notification. This information is aimed at ensuring that competent authorities are provided with adequate and proportionate information in order to assess the acquisition. Article 10a of MiFID, as amended by Article 6(4) of the Omnibus Directive[2], requires ESMA to draft: regulatory technical standards (RTS) to establish an exhaustive list of information referred to in Article 10b(4) of MiFID.[3] implementing technical standards (ITS) to determine standard forms, templates and procedures for the cooperation and exchange of information between the relevant competent authorities as referred to in Article 10(4) of MiFID.

27/03/2015 2015/613 Draft technical standards under Article 10a(8) of MiFID on the assessment of acquisitions and increases in qualifying holdings in investment firms Technical Standards PDF
142.57 KB
Article 10b(4) of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID ) requires Member States to make publicly available the information necessary to carry out the assessment of a proposed acquirer of an investment firm. This information must be provided by the proposed acquirer at the time of the initial notification. This information is aimed at ensuring that competent authorities are provided with adequate and proportionate information in order to assess the acquisition. Article 10a of MiFID, as amended by Article 6(4) of the Omnibus Directive, requires ESMA to draft: - regulatory technical standards (RTS) to establish an exhaustive list of information referred to in Article 10b(4) of MiFID; and- implementing technical standards (ITS) to determine standard forms, templates and procedures for the cooperation and exchange of information between the relevant competent authorities as referred to in Article 10(4) of MiFID. ESMA had submitted the draft RTS and ITS to the European Commission (Commission) by 1 January 2014, as required. However, following the original submission to the Commission, a few changes have been necessary because of: - the adoption of a Corrigendum to MiFID to include a cross-reference to paragraph 4 of Article 10a of MiFID, instead of paragraph 4 of Article 10b of MiFID; and- the publication of MiFID II which repeals MiFID but confirms the empowerment to adopt the same RTS/ITS. ESMA submitted the updated draft RTS and ITS to the Commission on 27 March 2015, taking into consideration the points above and has included a new Article to cover the information to the provided by the proposed acquirer to enable the competent authority to assess “the reputation and experience of any person who will direct the business of the investment firm as a result of the proposed acquisition”.The Commission has three months to decide whether to endorse ESMA’s draft technical standards
