Changes in shareholdings shall be reported to Finansinspektionen. According to the regulations in Sweden the shareholders shall notify the market about major changes in ownership.
These regulations are based on the EU's Transparency Directive. Shareholders, in conjunction with a triggering transaction, shall notify both the issuing company and Finansinspektionen. Thereafter Finansinspektionen will publish the information.
The notification obligation applies when shareholders acquire or dispose of shares in a listed company and thereby reach, exceed or fall below the 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 50, 66 2/3 and 90 per cent thresholds for voting rights or number of shares in the company.
Notifications are submitted via Finansinspektionen's Reporting Portal. To log in, you must first register as a user, see Register an account. Foreign users (without Swedish e-identification) register an account and log in with email address + mobile app verification.
