The EU Regulation no° 596/2014 on market abuse (“Market Abuse Regulation” or “MAR”) aims to prevent market abuse by defining the rules on trading in a company’s shares by its insiders as well as the disclosure of inside information, and by sanctioning market manipulation. Deceuninck has established a Dealing Code regulating transactions and the disclosure of such transactions in Deceuninck shares, derivatives or other financial instruments linked to it by persons discharging managerial responsibilities and certain key employees.
