Issuer Regulation Covid-19
The outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic and subsequent national lockdown in South Africa has introduced business continuity challenges to many issuers. The JSE appreciates that the impact on businesses has been varying and the JSE has been in constant engagement with issuers and sponsors on a case by case basis to find solutions to ensure that
• issuers disseminate company relevant information, including price sensitive information,
through SENS; and
• there are open and consistent lines of communication between (i) sponsors and issuers and
(ii) sponsors and the JSE.
As the JSE remains open for trading during covid-19 by enabling price transparency, trading out of positions and providing access to capital, enhanced disclosure for the protection of both investors is paramount as we tackle these unprecedented times.
Below is all JSE covid-19 related guidance notes and market notices.
