PLUS - Perma Link Upload Service

Document hyperlinking made easy

In response to the new prospectus regime that came fully into effect on 21 July 2019, LuxSE is proud to add PLUS – Perma Link Upload Service – to its ever-growing and diverse service offering. PLUS is a tool that has been carefully built to address technical issues which issuers may face when incorporating by reference within a prospectus the information contained in documents via hyperlink.

Guaranteed validity and storage

PLUS is the latest solution, built by LuxSE, to address the requirements surrounding the use and accessibility of hyperlinks within a prospectus as required by the new EU Prospectus Regulation and implementing Act in Luxembourg. 

By using PLUS, issuers can generate hyperlinks to the documents incorporated by reference required within the prospectus, which are then stored on LuxSE’s secure database. 

The EU Prospectus Regulation stipulates that any documents incorporated by reference into a prospectus must be referenced by a hyperlink. This hyperlink must be valid and accessible for a period of at least 10 years and must directly point to the document being incorporated. 

This is where PLUS comes to the assistance of the issuers by providing them with a service that guarantees the validity and accessibility of a link for a period of 10+1 years.
