 31 July 2018 - EWSM is now closed

  • The European Wholesale Securities Market is closed for business.

  • All previously listed issuers have made suitable arrangements to transfer their listing to another EU regulated market or have ceased listing on the EWSM.

6 July 2018 - EWSM plans to close on 13 July 2018

  • Following the acquisition of The Irish Stock Exchange plc, trading as Euronext Dublin, by Euronext NV on 27 March 2018, a decision was made by The Managing Board of Euronext NV, to cease the operations of the European Wholesale Securities Market (EWSM) with a planned effective date of Friday 13 July 2018.

  • As a result, we are liaising with issuers to ensure all securities cease to be listed on the EWSM from that date.

  • It is the responsibility of issuers to consider what is the most suitable option regarding their future listing arrangements based on their circumstances. 

  • EWSM is aware that other EU regulated markets, including the Main Securities Market operated by Euronext Dublin and Institutional Financial Securities Market operated by the Malta Stock Exchange, are offering alternative listing arrangements to issuers subject to the Prospectus Directive and listing requirements being satisfied.
