B. Obligations with respect to listing
Content of the listing prospectus
1 The content of the listing prospectus is governed by Scheme G, which constitutes an integral part of these Additional Rules.
2 If the ETPs are subject to foreign law (Art. 6 para. 2), clear textual reference to that fact, emphasised in bold, must be made on the front cover of the listing prospectus. The same applies to cases in which no place of jurisdiction in Switzerland has been designated. Where an issuance programme, as described in Art. 16 para. 1 point 2, is used, the corresponding statement must be made in the final term sheet.
Form of the listing prospectus
1 In derogation of Art. 29 LR (Form of the listing prospectus), the listing prospectus may take the following alternative forms:
- a complete listing prospectus for each individual issue ("stand-alone prospectus");
- a complete issuing prospectus for each individual issue as part of an issuance programme that has been registered with SIX Swiss Exchange in accordance with the registration procedure described in Art. 7 Directive Procedures Exchange Traded Products, including a final term sheet in accordance with para. 3 ("SIX Swiss Exchange-registered issuance programme").
2 Should the issuer produce a stand-alone prospectus in accordance with para. 1 point 1, it must contain full information about the issuer and the guarantor, as well as full details of the ETP, that are required under the LR, ARETP and Scheme G.
3 If the issuer produces a listing prospectus as part of a SIX Swiss Exchange-registered issuance programme as described in para. 1 point 2, then all of the following conditions must be met:
- the issuance programme must contain all of the information that must be published about the issuer and the guarantor, as well as the general terms and conditions attached to the ETPs, that are required under the LR, ARETP and Scheme G;
- the final term sheet must contain all of the definitive conditions for the issue in question;
- both the issuance programme and the final term sheet must state that the issuance programme and the final term sheet together constitute the complete listing prospectus.
Incorporation by reference
In addition to the options for incorporation by reference described in Art. 35 para. 4 LR, reference may also be made to SIX Swiss Exchange-registered issuance programmes as described in Art. 16 para. 1 point 2.
Fulfilment by the guarantor
Both the issuer and the guarantor must fulfil all of the obligations incumbent upon them. In particular, the listing prospectus must also contain information about the guarantor.
1 The issuer must make an undertaking to the Exchange to ensure that a market exists for the ETPs in question (market maker).
2 The Exchange may issue implementing provisions with regard to market making.
