When a company decides to provide equity capital, thus acquiring the status of public company, it also agrees to submit to rules of maximum transparency regarding not only their corporate governance but, in general, every aspect related to corporate life, including relevant events affecting their own financial position. Therefore, the issuer must disclose to the public the price-sensitive information concerning them. The incomplete or untimely disclosure, or failure to disclose to the public the relevant information concerning the listed issuer, can facilitate market abuse, in the form of information manipulation of the financial markets or abuse of privileged information. This volume deals with all the aspects falling within the sphere of continuous information which listed issuers are required to provide to the public.
