ESMA expands Q&A document on the implementation of its APM guidance

  • ESMA (European Securities and Markets Authority) (dark gray) Image

30 Oct 2017

In June 2015, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published its final Guidelines on Alternative Performance Measures (APMs) for listed issuers that became effective in July 2016. Since then, ESMA has published several questions and answers on the guidelines to promote common supervisory approaches and practices in the implementation of them. Six new questions have now been added to the document.

The new questions on the guidelines provide information on the definition of APMs, the scope of the APM guidelines, the application of the scope exemption, the definition of the APM ‘organic growth’, how to carry out reconciliation, and how to apply the fair review principle.
