Clearstream Banking Luxembourg will receive the event type EXRI CHOS in MT564 and MT566 notifications and will in turn send the event type EXRI CHOS messages to all customers.

This is as a result of Clearstream Banking Luxembourg’s update to Creation.

Impact on customers

  • Finland
  • Germany
  • Ireland

Tender and repurchase offers with a cash line (credit) for German domestic securities in CBF

For BIDS VOLU and TEND VOLU in CBF the CASH option and newly introduced SECU option will have a SECMOVE CREDIT sequence. This will enable the event templates to cover German peculiarity on tender and repurchase offers, where a cash line is credited. Customers will instruct on the BIDS VOLU or TEND VOLU event, in order to get their ordinary shares exchanged into the ISIN of the cash line. Removal of the cash line and CASHMOVE CREDIT will be handled by an EXOF MAND event at later stage of the event lifecycle.
