Memo on HKEx Listing Rule Consultation

In February 2008, ACGA prepared a memo for members on an omnibus "combined consultation" published by Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing (HKEx) the previous month. The consultation sought market views on a wide range of issues, including sponsor independence, minimum public float, pre-vetting of issuer announcements, voting by poll, and the director "blackout period", among other things. The consultation also sought views on whether to change the rules on the "general mandate" - a reform that ultimately did not proceed.
