The database of the Danish FSA for company announcements shows published short net positions in shares admitted to trading in Denmark. The database contains all announcements of this type published since 1 November 2012 under the rules in the Regulation on short selling.
According to the rules, a position holder’s net short position must be published when exceeding 0.5% of the issued share capital. The position holder must subsequently make a notification each time a net short position changes by 0.1% or more.
When a position holder reduces his net short position to below 0.5%, the notification must include the number of shares in the position at the time of flagging down. After 24 hours the announcement will be marked historical.
An announcement of a net short position is moreover marked as historical when a position holder has notified a subsequent announcement in the same share.
Choose 'Shortselling' as announcement type if you want to see only announcements of short positions.
When searching for shortselling announcements, it is possible to deselect historical announcements. You may also choose to see only the current positions, also called active positions.
List of short positions
The Danish FSA publishes a list of net short positions exceeding 0.5% of the issued share capital. This is prepared on the basis of the notifications to the FSA’s database for company announcements. The positions are distributed on position holders. The list also states when the position was last changed.
The list contains all published net short positions with position date from 1 November 2012 until the end of the latest quarter. The list is updated no later than one month after the end of a quarter.
The Danish FSA receives notifications of net short positions exceeding 0.2% of the issued share capital under the rules in the Regulation on short selling. Notifications between 0.2% and 0.5% of the issued share capital are not subject to an obligation to publish, and they are therefore not included in the database for company announcements.
The FSA summarises all reported net short positions exceeding 0.2% of the issued share capital and publishes these accumulated net short positions in Danish shares.
The list includes all reported net short positions with position date from 1 November 2012 until the latest update. Update is made approximately once a month.
On European level it was decided on 16 March 2020 that the reporting threshold for net short positions should be temporarily lowered from 0.2 % of a company's issued share capital to 0.1 percent. Thus, the Danish FSA has also produced a list that summarizes all net short positions at or above 0.1 % of the issued share capital. Please note that the change of the reporting threshold only applies to net short positions that reach or exceed the new 0.1 percent threshold on 16 March 2020 or after this date.
