The trainer has spent over 20 years in the City advising on a wide range of corporate finance transactions. He now provides corporate finance training courses on takeovers, London listings and other UK market regulation, as well as providing independent corporate finance advice. His courses draw on his extensive technical knowledge and are illustrated with relevant examples from his own experience and recent transactions.
On 1 January 2018 a number of updates have been made to the Official List Listing Rules to improve and clarify the rules on the eligibility for a Premium Listing, the classification of significant transactions and reverse takeovers. This course examines these changes and covers other significant updates to the Listing Rules and Technical Notes in the last few years, including shareholder protection and sponsor competence.
The course also covers the Market Abuse Regulation, which became applicable to all quoted companies in the UK in 2016 and is expected to remain, in spite of Brexit, until at least 2019 and probably longer. The requirements of the new MAR and the changes this has brought to the UK market abuse regime are examined.
In addition to comprehensive slides, the course documentation includes exercises illustrating the points in the Technical Notes.
