I would be interested to hear from other listed PLCs their thoughts on EQS Group, an outfit that are messaging customers of RNS Submit about their two outages in 2022, one in January and one more recently. EQS are suggesting that not being able to use the RNS service to publish disclosures could have put us in breach of Articles 17 – 19 of the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR), the Listing Rules, and the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules (see DTR 8.4.3R).
Are other issuers considering having accounts with two PIPs, allowing them to ensure their regulatory information is disseminated in a timely manner should there be a problem with their usual PIP?
