Share management contracts
The share management contract is a discretionary management mandate entrusted by a listed company. The purpose is to ensure the liquidity of transactions and regularity of quotations while avoiding price discrepancies that are unjustified by a market trend. CIC Market Solutions' issuer trading teams use appropriate management tools to fulfil their aims, and provide clients with regular reports and active market monitoring of their shares.
In an ever-changing regulatory environment, CIC Market Solutions assists issuers in their share buyback transactions, be these for cancellation purposes, to cover stock options, or to pay for external growth transactions. These interventions can be carried out via direct orders or under buyback mandates.
CIC Market Solutions' issuer trading floor assists issuers as well as controlling holding or investment companies in the management of their listed investments (purchase or disposal of holdings), in complete confidentiality and in compliance with regulatory requirements.
Our trading methodology: a tailor-made strategy
The issuer trading floor team adapts the trading strategy to the specific characteristics of each security and to market trends, with a view to maximising its efficiency and in compliance with regulatory constraints. The team intervenes on different venues – Euronext, MTFs, dark pools, etc. – and depending on the situation, trades manually, automatically or via algorithmic trading. For share buybacks and corporate execution mandates, CIC Market Solutions has the capacity to search for blocks internally or via other brokers in order to achieve the most synergistic combination possible for the benefit of its clients.
