Statoil accepts fine for incomplete listing
Økokrim (the Norwegian National Authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime) has confirmed that they do not suspect that anyone has traded on or misused information from Statoil prior to the stock market announcement of 16 August 2011.
Statoil has cooperated actively with Økokrim to resolve this matter.
Statoil takes the handling of inside information very seriously and maintained a continuous overview of persons with access to information prior to the announcement 16 August 2011. Statoil has clear procedures and processes in place to ensure compliance with the requirements under the Securities Trading Act. Unfortunately, in this case, some of these procedures were not adequately followed.
Following this incident Statoil has implemented a number of measures, including a further strengthening of our procedures and the quality assurance of insider lists.
