How Takeover Panel and Issuer Threshold data can help with shareholding disclosures?

Some jurisdictions have rules for enhanced shareholding disclosures referencing issuers under a takeover situation. During an offer period, any party that could exercise material influence over the outcome of an offer must report their positions and dealings in relevant securities, target, and acquirer companies.

In addition, certain countries have issuer specific thresholds on top of those defined by shareholdings regulations. This enables issuers to stipulate additional notification thresholds in their articles of association.

What is Refinitiv's solution?

Positions and dealings in relevant securities must be disclosed for shareholder and investor protection, as well as determining the merits of a takeover.

Refinitiv’s takeover panel data comprises details of target companies and acquirers currently in an offer period. A daily update of issuers involved in a takeover situation in the following countries is offered: Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Similarly, Refinitiv’s issuer threshold data provides details of companies where there is an additional, issuer-specific reporting obligation and what percentage that is set at within their respective articles of association.
