Two new ones

13 December 2004 Angelo Coppola

The Insider Trading Directorate (ITD) held its twenty-ninth meeting at the Financial Services Board (FSB) recently.

Two new cases, namely investigations into share transactions in Intervid Limited during May 2003 to March 2004 and McCarthy Limited during October 2003 to November 2003 have been added to the investigation list.

The investigations into share transactions in Amalgamated Appliance Holdings Limited and Primedia Limited were closed.

There are nine cases currently under investigation.

The Act empowers the FSB to issue a civil summons against alleged offenders for up to three times the profit gained, or the losses avoided as a result of unlawful insider trading.

The Act prohibits any individual from dealing in any security or financial instrument if he or she knows that he or she has inside information. It also prohibits such a person from encouraging or discouraging any other person from dealing in the share, or from disclosing the inside information.
