Benton Announces Receipt of LEI Number

 

December 19, 2017 

Thunder Bay, Ontario: Benton Resources Inc. (TSXV: BEX, FSE: BR0) (“Benton” or “the Company”) announces it has been assigned the Legal Entity Identifier ("LEI") number 529900I8UQ52ZGEP4254. The European Union has adopted regulations that require use of the LEI as a barcode equivalent aimed at pinpointing systemic risks. 

About the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) 

The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) number is a 20-digit alphanumeric code. It is an internationally standardized and globally valid identifier for financial market participants. Its purpose is to clearly and unequivocally identify contracting parties (e.g., companies, banks, and investment funds). It is used to comply with a variety of financial reporting requirements.  The Deutsche B?rse Group has stated that "the LEI will clearly assist the regulatory authorities in monitoring and analysing threats to the stability of the financial markets, (but) it can also be utilised by counterparties internally for risk management purposes."

Benton meets the requirement for all companies listed on German Stock Exchanges (ie. Frankfurt Stock Exchange) to have an LEI number by January 3, 2018.

 

According to the website of the Deutsche B?rse Group, the LEI number will affect most aspects of the securities markets in Europe, including trading, clearing, settlement, custody, collateral and liquidity management, market data and indices.
