ISE changes its corporate structure to a plc
The ISE has formed a new corporate structure and has become a public limited company: The Irish Stock Exchange plc.
From a business perspective, the transition to the new corporate structure has been seamless.
All operations, services and processes previously undertaken by The Irish Stock Exchange Limited are now being undertaken by The Irish Stock Exchange plc. All staff who previously worked for The Irish Stock Exchange Limited are now employed by The Irish Stock Exchange plc.
The change in corporate structure has been approved by the Central Bank of Ireland and the ISE has also engaged with the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation. All regulatory rights and responsibilities have transferred to the new entity and the ISE continues to be regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.
Deirdre Somers, Chief Executive of the ISE, said, “We are excited to start this new chapter in the Irish Stock Exchange’s 200 year history. This new legal structure brings the ISE more in line with corporate norms which we believe is more appropriate for the successful, diverse international business that the ISE has become. This change also provides us with greater flexibility for our future development which is of benefit to all our customers and stakeholders.”
