Within the scope of Over-the-Exchange services offered by SIX Swiss Exchange to its participants, it is possible to trade in international equity securities on SIX Swiss Exchange.
These securities are not listed on SIX Swiss Exchange under the provisions of the Listing Rules but are admitted to trading. Admission to trading for international equity securities is based on the Rules for the Admission of International Equity Securities to Trading on SIX Swiss Exchange (Rules Equity Securities, RES).
Equity securities as defined in these Rules are securities which confer participation rights (e.g. shares) that are listed on a stock exchange recognized by the Regulatory Board and are admitted to trading on a regulated market on this exchange. This stock exchange or regulated market is also regarded as the reference market for the services offered.
Admission and cancellation of trading
SIX Swiss Exchange and its management hold sole and exclusive authority to decide whether equity securities are admitted to trading or cancelled. Admission to trading is not provided at the request of the issuer or a sponsor.
Neither SIX Swiss Exchange nor the Regulatory Board is required to procure or publish information on equity securities that have been admitted to trading via the trading services offered by SIX Swiss Exchange (e.g. ad hoc publicity, name change, annual financial statements, interim financial statements, date of the next general meeting, date of ex-dividend trading, etc.).
