Where an issuer has shares which have a nominal value of less than HK$0.25, then for the purpose of calculating the annual listing fee, the nominal value of each share shall be deemed to be HK$0.25.

Notes:

  1. For secondary listings on the Main Board, the annual fee is normally 25% of the fees listed above.
  2. For HDR issuers, the "nominal value of listed equity securities" refers to the nominal value of the shares represented by the DRs.
  3. In the case of listed issuers whose shares cease to have a nominal value subsequent to their date of listing (the “no-par event”), the nominal value per share that was used to calculate the annual listing fees immediately before the no-par event (the “notional nominal value per share”) shall be used to calculate the annual listing fees from the no-par event. If an issuer conducts a subdivision of shares after the no-par event, the notional nominal value per share shall be adjusted accordingly, subject to a minimum of HK$0.25 (e.g. if an issuer conducts a 2-for-1 subdivision, and the notional nominal value per share was HK$1, the nominal value per share used to calculate annual listing fees from the subdivision will be HK$0.50).
  4. In the case of issuers whose shares have no nominal value on their date of listing, the nominal value per share shall be deemed to be HK$0.25 for the purpose of calculating the annual listing fee.
