Euronext Listed Securities
The Central Bank of Ireland (the "CBI") is the competent authority for the purposes of Directive 2003/71/EC (as amended) (the “Prospectus Directive”), Directive 2004/109/EC (the "Transparency Directive"), the Market Abuse Regulation (Regulation EU 596/2014) ( "MAR") and the Market Abuse Directive on criminal sanctions for market abuse (Directive 2014/57/EU) in Ireland. A prospectus must be approved by the CBI in advance of debt securities being listed on Euronext. Euronext Dublin must also be satisfied that the conditions for listing, as set out in the Euronext Dublin Listing Rules (the "Euronext Rules"), have been met before it will list debt securities and admit them to trading on Euronext.
GEM Listed Securities
Euronext Dublin is the competent authority for the review, approval, listing and admission to trading of securities listed on the GEM. The CBI remains the competent authority for the purposes of MAR.
