ESMA publishes new Q&A on Alternative Performance Measures Guidelines

2 min read

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published a new Questions and Answers (Q&A) document, comprising six questions, on the implementation of its Guidelines on the Alternative Performance Measures for listed issuers.

An alternative performance measure is a financial measure of historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows, other than a financial measure defined or specified in the applicable financial reporting framework. The guidelines apply to alternative performance measures disclosed by issuers or persons responsible for drawing up a prospectus (read ESMA’s one page summary).

The purpose of this Q&A is to promote common supervisory approaches and practices in the implementation of these guidelines.
