(Fully booked) BDO Webinar: Case study and insights into listco suspension

Date: 31 July 2020
Time: 15:30 - 17:30

  

  • Summary

The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited's latest adoption of a more robust listing suspension policy and implementation of relevant amendments to the listing rules is aimed at providing a degree of certainty to the market on the delisting procedures of long suspended listed companies, as well as to facilitate timely delisting of poor quality companies while encourage those suspended companies to act promptly towards resumption. Prolonged suspension not only will impact negatively on share prices, but may also limit the existing shareholders to realise the remaining value of their investments.

While suspension initiation may be voluntary or involuntary with various reasons, listed companies need to timely respond to confronted issues and shorten the suspension period. More importantly, listed companies need to be vigilant in self-regulation, thus improving governance, strengthening management and product quality, and improving information transparency.

In this webinar, we will examine the regulatory updates on stock suspension and resumption and the recent trends in regulatory enforcement actions. We will also provide insights into resumption of trading and key strategies to stay vigilant against prolonged suspension through actual case studies of suspended listing companies and our analysis of the remedial actions adopted by the suspended companies.
