Sep 24, 2020

On September 24, 2020, the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) published its annual Summary of Oversight and Regulatory Activities, which details the key initiatives of the Direction principale du financement des sociétés (“Corporate Finance”) for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

After presenting a profile of companies for which the AMF is the principal regulator, the summary outlines the outcomes of reviews of continuous disclosure documents and prospectuses filed by the companies. The summary also presents findings of reviews relating to AMF regulations and the guidance set out in international financial reporting standards.

In a spirit of openness and transparency, the summary also provides the market with information on the representation of women on boards and in executive officer positions and ongoing regulatory initiatives relating to company financing and continuous disclosure requirements.

The last part of the summary describes the many innovations that have been implemented by the AMF over the past year—particularly in response to the pandemic, which has had an impact on company disclosures and their analysis.

Review the press release and report on the AMF's website.
