COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 759/2013

of 30 April 2013

amending Regulation (EC) No 809/2004 as regards the disclosure requirements for convertible and exchangeable debt securities

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Directive 2003/71/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 November 2003 on the prospectus to be published when securities are offered to the public or admitted to trading and amending Directive 2001/34/EC (1), and in particular Article 7(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 809/2004 of 29 April 2004 implementing Directive 2003/71/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards information contained in prospectuses as well as the format, incorporation by reference and publication of such prospectuses and dissemination of advertisements (2) sets out the minimum information to be included in a prospectus for different kinds of securities in order to comply with Article 7(1) of Directive 2003/71/EC.

(2)

The share registration document schedule should be applicable to shares and other transferable securities equivalent to shares but also to other securities giving access to the capital of the issuer by way of conversion or exchange where the underlying shares are not already admitted to trading on a regulated market.

(3)

Where the issuer of the underlying shares belongs to the same group as the issuer of the convertible or exchangeable debt securities but the underlying shares are not admitted to trading on a regulated market, information on the issuer is not easily available to investors. Therefore, the share registration schedule should be applicable to those underlying shares and should be added to the combinations used for drawing up the prospectus.

(4)

Where securities with warrants or derivative securities give the right to acquire the issuer’s or group’s shares and those shares are not admitted to trading on a regulated market, the relevant information set out in the securities note schedule for derivative securities should be provided to investors.

(5)

Where debt securities are exchangeable or convertible into shares already admitted to trading on a regulated market, information on the underlying shares is already available to shareholders and investors in general. Therefore, it should be clarified that it is sufficient to add a statement setting out the type of the underlying and details of where information on the underlying can be obtained in the combinations used for drawing up the securities note of the prospectus.

(6)

Where debt securities are convertible or exchangeable into shares which are or will be issued by the issuer of the security or by an entity belonging to its group and these underlying shares are not already admitted to trading on a regulated market, investors should also be provided with a working capital statement and a statement of capitalisation and indebtedness of the issuer of the underlying shares. Those statements would provide investors in the securities note with the same information on the ability of the issuer of the underlying shares to continue as a going concern and on its indebtedness compared to its capitalisation as would be available when investing in shares directly.

(7)

Where the underlying shares are issued by a third party and are not admitted to trading on a regulated market the investors do not have easy access to a description of those underlying shares. Therefore, the additional building block describing the underlying share should be added to the combinations used for drawing up the securities note of the prospectus.

(8)

For reasons of legal certainty it is necessary to clarify, in the table set out in Annex XVIII to Regulation (EC) No 809/2004, how schedules and building blocks should be combined when drawing up a prospectus, including where only certain information items of schedules and building blocks are required, where certain information items may not be applicable due to specific combinations of schedules and building blocks in particular cases, and where the issuer, offeror or person asking for admission to trading on a regulated market may choose between different schedules and building blocks according to specific thresholds, such as the minimum denomination of debt securities, or conditions set out in Regulation (EC) No 809/2004.

(9)

The term ‘bonds’ should be replaced by the term ‘debt securities’ in order to ensure consistency of terminology within Regulation (EC) No 809/2004.

(10)

The application of the pro forma financial information building block set out in Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 809/2004 is conditional upon a significant gross change in the size of the issuer, therefore the words ‘(if applicable)’ should be added to the heading of the column entitled ‘BUILDING BLOCK’ applicable to the registration document in Annex XVIII to that Regulation to reflect the conditional applicability of Annex II to that Regulation.

(11)

Convertible or exchangeable debt securities can provide access to issuer’s new shares when the right to subscribe is exercised by their holders. Accordingly, rights issues of convertible or exchangeable debt securities into issuer’s new shares should also be able to benefit from the proportionate disclosure regime set out in Article 26a of Regulation (EC) No 809/2004 provided that the underlying shares are new shares issued by the same entity issuing debt securities. The prospectus for the offer or admission to trading on a regulated market of debt securities convertible or exchangeable into issuer’s shares issued by small and medium sized enterprises and companies with reduced market capitalisation should also benefit from the proportionate disclosure regime set out in Article 26b of Regulation (EC) No 809/2004. Accordingly, the combination of schedules and building blocks applicable to rights issues of debt securities convertible or exchangeable into issuer’s shares or to convertible or exchangeable debt securities issued by small and medium sized enterprises and companies with reduced market capitalisation should be included in Annex XVIII.

(12)

In consideration of the need to provide issuers with a transitional period to adapt to the new requirements introduced by this Regulation, this Regulation should only apply to prospectuses and base prospectuses which have been approved by a competent authority on the date of or after its entry into force.

(13)

Regulation (EC) No 809/2004 should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Amendments to Regulation (EC) No 809/2004

Regulation (EC) No 809/2004 is amended as follows:

(1)

in Article 6, the following paragraph 3 is added:

4.   Where debt securities are convertible or exchangeable into shares which are or will be issued by the issuer of the debt security or by an entity belonging to its group and these underlying shares are not already admitted to trading on a regulated market, information on the issuer of the underlying shares shall also be given in accordance with items 3.1 and 3.2 of the schedule set out in Annex III or, as the case may be, of the proportionate schedule set out in Annex XXIV.

5.   Where debt securities with warrants give the right to acquire the issuer’s shares and these shares are not admitted to trading on a regulated market, the information required by the schedule set out in Annex XII except item 4.2.2 shall also be given.’;

(4)

in Article 16 the following paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 are added:

‘3.   Where debt securities are exchangeable or convertible into shares already admitted to trading on a regulated market, the information required by item 4.2.2 of the schedule set out in Annex XII shall also be given.

4.   Where debt securities are convertible or exchangeable into shares which are or will be issued by the issuer of the debt security or by an entity belonging to its group and these underlying shares are not already admitted to trading on a regulated market, information on the issuer of the underlying shares shall also be given in accordance with items 3.1 and 3.2 of the schedule set out in Annex III or, as the case may be, of the proportionate schedule set out in Annex XXIV.

5.   Where debt securities with warrants give the right to acquire the issuer’s shares and these shares are not admitted to trading on a regulated market, the information required by the schedule set out in Annex XII except item 4.2.2 shall also be given.’;

(5)

in Article 17(2), point 2 is replaced by the following:

‘2.

provided that these shares or other transferable securities equivalent to shares are or will be issued by the issuer of the security, by an entity belonging to the group of that issuer or by a third party and are not yet traded on a regulated market or an equivalent market outside the Union at the time of the approval of the prospectus covering the securities, and that the underlying shares or other transferable securities equivalent to shares can be delivered with physical settlement.’;

(6)

the title of Annex XIV is replaced by the following:

Additional information building block on the underlying share’;

(7)

Annex XVIII is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Regulation.

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market and repealing Council Directives 79/117/EEC and 91/414/EEC (1), and in particular the first paragraph of Article 17 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Part A of the Annex to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 of 25 May 2011 implementing Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the list of approved active substances (2) sets out the active substances deemed to have been approved under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009.

(2)

The approvals of the active substances chlorpyrifos, chlorpyrifos-methyl, mancozeb, maneb, MCPA, MCPB and metiram will expire between 30 April 2016 and 30 June 2016. Applications have been submitted for the renewal of the approval of these active substances. As the requirements laid down in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 844/2012 of 18 September 2012 setting out the provisions necessary for the implementation of the renewal procedure for active substances, as provided for in Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market (3) apply to those active substances, it is necessary to allow applicants sufficient time to complete the renewal procedure in accordance with that Regulation. Consequently, the approvals of those active substances are likely to expire before a decision has been taken on their renewal. It is therefore necessary to extend their approval periods.

(3)

Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(4)

In view of the aim of the first paragraph of Article 17 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, as regards cases where no supplementary dossier in accordance with Implementing Regulation (EU) No 844/2012 is submitted no later than 30 months before the respective expiry date laid down in the Annex to this Regulation, the Commission will set the expiry date at the same date as before this Regulation or at the earliest date thereafter.

(5)

In view of the aim of the first paragraph of Article 17 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, as regards cases where the Commission will adopt a Regulation providing that the approval of an active substance referred to in the Annex to this Regulation is not renewed because the approval criteria are not satisfied, the Commission will set the expiry date at the same date as before this Regulation or at the date of the entry into force of the Regulation providing that the approval of the active substance is not renewed, whichever date is later.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Part A of the Annex to Implementing Regulation (EU) No 540/2011 is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION

of 2 August 2013

concerning a financial contribution by the Union to the emergency vaccination plan against classical swine fever in Latvia and Belarus and for the implementation of surveillance measures in Latvia, Lithuania and Belarus in the context of the emergency measures taken to combat this disease

(notified under document C(2013) 4980)

(Only the Latvian and Lithuanian texts are authentic)

(2013/427/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Decision 2009/470/EC of 25 May 2009 on expenditure in the veterinary field (1), and in particular Article 3(3), 3(6) and Article 8 thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 966/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 on the financial rules applicable to the general budget of the Union and repealing Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002 (2), and in particular Article 84 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

As the plan approved by Commission Implementing Decision 2013/90/EU (3) is a sufficiently detailed framework in the meaning of Article 94 of the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1268/2012 of 29 October 2012 on the rules of application of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 966/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the financial rules applicable to the general budget of the Union (4), the present decision constitutes a financing decision for the expenditure provided for in the work programme for grants.

(2)

Classical swine fever is an infectious viral disease of domestic and feral pigs which causes disturbance to intra-Union trade and export to third countries.

(3)

In the event of an outbreak of classical swine fever, there is a risk that the disease agent might spread to other pig holdings within that Member State, to other Member States and to third countries through trade in live pigs, their products, semen, ova and embryos and also by feral pigs.

(4)

Council Directive 2001/89/EC of 23 October 2001 on Community measures for the control of classical swine fever (5) lays down the measures that shall be taken in the event of an outbreak to prevent further spread of the virus.

(5)

In case of confirmation of the presence of classical swine fever virus in feral pigs and when the epidemiological data available suggest that it threatens to spread, oral vaccination of feral pigs in the area at risk is the most effective and efficient veterinary measure to contain the spread of the disease.

(6)

On 20 November 2012 Latvia notified two primary cases of classical swine fever in feral pigs in Dagda and Zilupe counties, very close to the border with Belarus and Russia.

(7)

Following these outbreaks Latvia implemented surveillance for classical swine fever in feral pigs and subsequently in domestic pigs in backyard holdings in the areas surrounding the primary cases to define the infected area.

(8)

Implementing Decision 2013/90/EU approved the plan presented by Latvia for the eradication of classical swine fever and the emergency vaccination of feral pigs as soon as the environmental conditions allow for it in the designed areas in accordance with Article 16(1) and the fourth subparagraph of Article 20(2) of Directive 2001/89/EC.

(9)

In accordance to the Latvian legislation, the outbreak of classical swine fever is considered as an emergency and with the agreement by the cabinet of Ministers it was allowed the urgent procedure for the purchase of the vaccine without an open tender to ensure the availability of the vaccine for the 2013 spring campaign.

(10)

Due to the vicinity of the infected area to Belarus it cannot be excluded that infected feral pigs cross the border between Latvia and Belarus, and also the Community veterinary emergency team after the visit on the spot in February 2013 recommended to extend the vaccination area to a 50 km buffer zone in Belarusian territories along the Latvian border.

(11)

To assess the epidemiological evolution of the disease in feral pigs and in pigs in backyard holdings at risk, it was appropriate to urgently establish harmonised surveillance activities and epidemiological surveys based on serological and virological laboratory tests for classical swine fever virus in domestic and feral pigs in certain high risk areas in the surroundings of the infected area within Latvia, Belarus and as well Lithuania.

(12)

Latvia has presented the estimated costs of the plan for classical swine fever emergency vaccination of feral pigs indicating the approximate number of vaccine doses needed for the territory of Latvia and the vaccination buffer zone in Belarus and the estimated costs of carrying out those vaccinations. The estimated cost for emergency vaccination amounts to EUR 221 800.

(13)

In the first week of April 2013, Latvia and Lithuania submitted an initial estimation of the costs to be incurred for the implementation of an epidemiological survey and classical swine fever surveillance measures in the context of the other emergency measures taken to combat the disease in the territory of Latvia, Lithuania and Belarus. The estimated cost for the surveillance measures amount to EUR 227 000 in Latvia and Belarus and EUR 17 000 in Lithuania.

(14)

The retroactive eligibility of the costs incurred by Latvia since the date of notification of the outbreaks and by Lithuania and Belarus since the date of starting of surveillance activities is justified because these actions are essential to define the vaccination area and therefore successfully eradicate the disease.

(15)

Article 3(6) of Decision 2009/470/EC provides that the financial contribution from the Union must be 100 % of the cost of supply of the vaccine and 50 % of the cost incurred in carrying out the vaccination. However, given the need to avoid excessive expenditure for the Union budget, maximum amounts must be established which reflect the reasonable payment for cost of supply of the vaccine and costs incurred in carrying out the vaccination. A reasonable payment is a payment for a material or a service at a proportionate price compared to the market price. Pending on-the-spot checks carried out by the Commission, it is now necessary to approve specific financial contribution from the Union to Latvia and fix the amount for payment of the first instalment of the Union’s financial contribution.

(16)

Under Council Regulation (EC) No 1290/2005 of 21 June 2005 on the financing of the common agricultural policy (6), veterinary measures are to be financed under the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund. For financial control purposes, Articles 9, 36 and 37 of that Regulation are to apply.

(17)

The payment of the financial contribution shall be subject to the condition that the actions planned have actually been carried out and that the authorities supply all the necessary information to the Commission.

(18)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
