Among other things, the EU Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) means that senior executives within Eolus and their related parties must report transactions in excess of EUR 5,000 in a calendar year relating to securities issued by Eolus to the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority. The transactions are reported to the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, but this body does not keep a list of the management and Board of Directors’ holdings. Eolus provides information about these persons’ holdings in connection with their profile presentations on the website. Transactions that mean the threshold of EUR 5,000 is exceeded are published on the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority’s website.
