31 Jan 2003 Euronext: Wijziging regelementen in AEX-, Midkap- en All-share- index
Euronext Mededeling 2003-11

Euronext Indices B.V. maakt bekend dat de reglementen van de AEX-index, de Amsterdam Midkap index en de Amsterdam All-Share index worden gewijzigd.

1. De wijziging voor de AEX-index en de Amsterdam Midkap index betreft een verschuiving van de verantwoordelijkheid over de calculatie van settlement prijzen. Deze verantwoordelijkheid verschuift van Euronext Indices B.V. naar Euronext Amsterdam N.V.

De settlement procedure verdwijnt uit het AEX-index reglement en het Amsterdam Midkap index® reglement. De procedure blijft te vinden in het Reference Book van Euronext Amsterdam Derivative Markets.

De wijzigingen voor de Amsterdam All-Share index betreffen het volgende:

2. Peildata en effectieve data van herwegingen worden aangepast naar het schema van de AEX-index en de Amsterdam Midkap index.

3. De effectieve datum voor de Amsterdam All-Share Smaller Companies index zal direct op de peildatum volgen en zal worden afgestemd op de herweging van de AEX-index en de Amsterdam Midkap index.

4. De omschrijving van de volledige Amsterdam All-Share index serie wordt geconcentreerd in hoofdstuk 1 van het reglement.

5. De peildatum voor de periodieke herclassificatie van de fondsen uit de Amsterdam All-Share index voor de Amsterdam All-Share Sector indices blijft gehandhaafd op de derde vrijdag van de maand; effectief de tweede handelsdag van de maand daarop volgend.

Dit houdt in dat de peildatum voor de periodieke herweging van de Amsterdam All-Share Smaller Companies index en de peildatum voor de herclassificatie van alle fondsen voor de Amsterdam All-Share Sector Indices niet langer aan elkaar gelijk zijn. Daarom wordt een nieuw hoofdstuk opgenomen met daarin de omschrijving en de criteria voor de Amsterdam All-Share Smaller Companies index.

6. Euronext Indices B.V. maakt voorts van de gelegenheid gebruik om enkele kleine updates, verduidelijkingen en correcties aan te brengen.

De details zijn opgenomen in de appendix.

In verband met de aankondigingsperiode van 3 maanden, worden alle veranderingen effectief op 1 mei 2003.
