CapMan complies with the Market Abuse Regulation’s (“MAR”, 596/2014) rules on manager’s transactions and insider management and the guidelines for insiders issued by Nasdaq Helsinki. In addition, CapMan has its own internal policy regarding insider management, which is partly stricter than the general insider rules. The Group’s Compliance Officer is responsible for insider administration and shall e.g. monitor that employees comply with insider rules and trading restrictions, maintain project-specific insider lists, arrange internal trainings for employees on insider rules and disclosure responsibilities of listed companies.
CapMan maintains an internal, non-public list on managers and persons closely associated with them, which are, according to MAR, obliged to disclose all transactions made with financial instruments issued by CapMan. CapMan has determined the members of the Board of Directors and the Management Group (including the CEO) as managers defined in the Market Abuse Regulation (hereinafter “Manager(s)”). Each Manager has been instructed to inform the persons closely associated with them about the obligation to disclose transactions. CapMan publishes a release on each transaction which has been executed by a Manager or his/her closely associated person with the financial instruments issued by CapMan in case the total value of all transactions of this person exceeds EUR 5000 within a calendar year. The total holding of CapMan’s shares and share-based rights of each Manager is annually published as a part of the Annual Report.
CapMan maintains project-specific insider lists for the projects which may have a significant effect on the prices of the financial instruments issued by CapMan. These project-specific insider lists are drafted and maintained in accordance with the Market Abuse Regulation and CapMan’s internal policies and are established following a decision to delay the disclosure of inside information. The persons added to the project-specific list and all other persons that possess inside information related to CapMan, are not permitted to trade in financial instruments issued by CapMan. Prior to trading in CapMan’s financial instruments, each manager, employee or other person is always obliged to personally assess whether he/she is in the possession of inside information related to CapMan.
CapMan’s Managers (as described above) or employees are not permitted to trade in financial instruments issued by CapMan during a closed period of 30 calendar days prior to the publication of CapMan’s interim reports, half year financial report or financial statements bulletin. The publication dates are announced annually over a stock exchange release. CapMan’s Managers and employees have been instructed to inform their closely associated persons regarding closed periods and trading restrictions on CapMan’s financial instruments during the closed period. According to the internal trading pre-approval procedure, the Managers and the employees of CapMan Group are obliged to request a written pre-approval from the Compliance Officer before trading in financial instruments issued by CapMan.
