Insider management

Back to Corporate governance

The Etteplan Oyj Board of Directors has approved insider regulations for the Company. The regulations are based on the Finnish Securities Markets Act as well as from the beginning of July 2016 the Market Abuse Regulation (EU N:o 596/2104, MAR), and they comply with the standards of Financial Supervision and the Guidelines issued by the Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd.

In accordance with the Market Abuse regulation Etteplan is no longer under the obligation to maintain a public insider list. However, Etteplan maintains a list of its managers and publishes stock exchange releases on the transactions the managers report to the stock exchange and the Company in compliance with the time limits and obligations defined by MAR. Due to the nature of their position, the members of the Board of Directors, the CEO, and the members of the Management Group are entered into said list of managers.

In addition, the Company maintains a permanent company specific insider list in accordance with the decision of the Board of Directors. The company specific insider list includes frontline managers for business operations, financial administration personnel, and those working for the Company on the basis of an employment or other contract who receive insider information.

A project-specific insider list is created by the decision of the Board of Directors, the CEO, or the Management Group.

The Company’s insider guidelines direct insiders to restrict their trading in the Company’s shares to times when the markets have as precise information as possible on the factors influencing the value of shares in the Company. Consequently, persons included in Etteplan’s insider lists are always prohibited from trading with Company securities during 30 days before the publication of interim and half year financial reports and financial statement release, including the day of publication (the closed window). During other times, i.e. as of the day following the publication of interim and half year financial reports and financial statement release, there is an open window during which insiders are allowed to trade. Even then it is provided that they do not possess insider information.

The Chief Financial Officer is responsible for the maintenance of the afore mentioned lists of Etteplan Oyj. The CFO is also responsible for compliance with insider regulations and fulfilment of duties to report. The afore mentioned lists are maintained by the Company’s Espoo office, which updates the information that, as required by law, is entered in the lists for Euroclear Finland Ltd pertaining to insiders with the duty to declare.


Related party transactions


The Company and its Board of Directors monitor and evaluate transactions between the Company and its related parties. The Company has defined principles and processes for identifying the Company’s related parties and the transactions to be carried out with them as well as for evaluating and reporting the nature and terms of such transactions.

In order to identify its related party transactions, the Company keeps record of the persons that are its related parties. The record includes such persons that have control, joint control or significant influence over the Group. Also, the Group's key management personnel is included in the related party. Key management personnel refers to persons having authority and responsibility for planning, directing and controlling the activities of the Group, directly or indirectly, including any director (whether executive or otherwise) of the Group. Spouses, wards and companies in control or joint control of the before mentioned persons are considered as other related parties. The ultimate controlling party, Ingman Group Oy Ab, and its group companies are also included in related parties.

The Audit Committee of the Board monitors the Company’s related party transactions in accordance with the Company’s reporting practices. Transactions between the Company and its related parties are typically part of the ordinary course of business of the Company and are priced according to Group's normal pricing basis and sales conditions, which are equivalent to those that prevail in arm’s length transactions. Related party transactions that are not part of the ordinary course of business of the Company or are not priced according to Group’s normal pricing basis and sales conditions and are not implemented under arm's length terms require a decision by the Board of Directors. Board members cannot participate in deciding a related party transaction concerning themselves or their related parties in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

In 2021, Etteplan’s service purchases and sales from and to other related party companies were related to administrative cooperation between the companies as well as business with companies considered to be related parties through key management personnel of the Company.
