The regulations, in short
Anyone who exceeds the threshold of 10%, 15%, 20% or 25% of the equity or voting rights of an issuer whose shares are admitted to trading on Euronext Paris must send to the company and the AMF a statement of intent for the coming six months; this statement of intent must reach the AMF no later than before the close of trade on the fifth trading day following the day of the corresponding threshold crossing, and must be sent to the company within this deadline.
In the event of a change in intent within the six-month period following the submission of the original statement of intent, a new statement must be sent promptly to the company and to the AMF and made public under the same conditions. The six-month period begins again with this new statement.
The AMF shall make this information public via its decisions and financial information database.
