5 © 2014 Baker & McKenzie LLP 5 –Financial counterparties, non-financial counterparties and CCPs are required to report to a trade repository the details of any derivative contract which is concluded, modified or terminated (including any derivative with a pension fund or intra-group). –The report is to be made no later than the working day following the conclusion, modification or termination of the relevant derivative contract. –The Reporting Obligation covers both cleared and non-cleared derivatives and applies to derivative contracts:  entered into before 16 August 2012 (i.e. EMIR came into force) but which were outstanding on that date; and  entered into on or after 16 August 2012. –Delegated reporting is permitted, liability remains with party with reporting obligation What is the “Reporting Obligation”?

6 © 2014 Baker & McKenzie LLP 6 –EMIR uses the same definition of “derivatives” as set out in MiFID and therefore covers:  cash and physically settled financial derivatives;  cash settled commodity derivatives;  physically settled commodity derivatives traded on a regulated market or a multilateral trading facility;  physically settled commodity derivatives having characteristics of financial derivatives provided not being for commercial purposes –NB does not include spot FX but will include rolling spot FX –Forward FX for commercial purposes How does EMIR define “derivatives”?

7 © 2014 Baker & McKenzie LLP 7 –The Reporting Obligation applies to counterparties and CCPs –ESMA Q&A: only counterparties established in EU i.e. “financial counterparties” and “non-financial counterparties”. What is a “financial counterparty”? –A “financial counterparty” is any investment firm, credit institution, insurance, assurance or reinsurance undertaking, UCITS or UCITS manager, institution of occupational retirement provision or an alternative investment fund managed by an alternative investment fund manager (each as authorised under relevant European Directive). What is a “non-financial counterparty”? –A “non-financial counterparty” is any undertaking established in the EU that is not a “financial counterparty”. Who does EMIR Reporting Obligation apply to?

8 © 2014 Baker & McKenzie LLP 8 –ESMA “pro-forma” reports identifying the fields that will need to be completed by counterparties for the purposes of satisfying the Reporting Obligation  85 fields – Counterparty Data (x26) and Common Data (x59) –Counterparty Data - Information to be reported with respect to the counterparty includes:  parties to the contract;  whether the counterparty is a financial or non-financial counterparty;  whether the clearing threshold has been exceeded by the non-financial counterparty; and  name of the reporting entity (where the counterparty has delegated the reporting obligation)  mark-to-market/mark-to model and collateral details (Aug 2014 FC and NFC+ only) –Common Data - Information to be reported with respect to the derivative contract itself includes:  type of derivative contract;  maturity;  notional value;  price, and  settlement date.
