        • TKO 16.1.2 Guidance

          1. Under Article 9 of the Markets Law 2012 the DFSAG may waive or modify the application of the Markets Law 2012 or of the RulesG .
          2. The DFSAG may grant a waiver or modification from the application of the RulesG where a TakeoverG transaction is subject to the dual jurisdiction of the DFSAG and a regulator or agency of a jurisdiction other than the DIFCG . While applications will be considered on a case by case basis, it should be expected that the factors that the DFSAG will take into account in considering such an application will include:
          (a) whether the application of legislation or procedures of that other jurisdiction will or will not adequately and properly govern the transaction;
          (b) whether such legislation or procedures will or will not provide shareholder protection in a manner commensurate with these RulesG , DIFCG Law and international best practice;
          (c) whether the grant of the application is or is not in the interests of the DIFCG .
