Chi-X Japan PTS receives exemption from Take-Over-Bid rule


The Financial Services Agency has announced that as of 31 October Chi-X Japan, a wholly owned subsidiary of alternative trading venue operator Chi-X Global, will be designated as a proprietary trading system (PTS) on which transactions are exempt from the Take-Over-Bid (TOB) rule of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act.

The TOB rule requires investors who approach a five percent stake in a company’s outstanding shares to launch a tender offer if they are trading off exchange, causing many participants to have concern for inadvertently breaching the rule when trading on a PTS.

The exemption will allow investors to trade on Chi-X Japan without concern for breaching the TOB rule.

“Chi-X has long advocated for harmonised rules across venues that support fair and equal access for all investors, and today’s announcement is a significant step in the right direction,” says Yasuo Hamakake, chief executive, Chi-X Japan. “We have received an overwhelmingly positive response from new buy-side and retail participants, as well as from our existing trading participants, who recognise the benefits of trading on our venue.”
