Finansinspektionen has decided to open an investigation into EQT AB for suspected breach of the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) in conjunction with a delayed disclosure of inside information. FI’s handling of this matter is thus entering a new phase.
Finansinspektionen requested on 14 September that EQT submit an account of the circumstances that served as a basis for a delayed disclosure of inside information that the company reported to FI on 7 September in conjunction with changes to the company's lock-up agreement. EQT has since submitted its response to FI. Following an initial analysis of the company's response, FI has decided to investigate whether EQT violated Articles 17 and 18 of MAR.
