Rule Changes to Complement New Sponsor Regulation 

The SFC published the “Consultation Conclusions on the regulation of IPO Sponsors” on 12 December 2012 and the new sponsor regulation became effective on 1 October 2013.  The Exchange has made appropriate changes to the Listing Rules and streamlined the listing vetting process to complement the new sponsor regulation, with a view to making the process more efficient, while maintaining the standards of companies to be listed on the Exchange.

Our “Rule Changes to Complement New Sponsor Regulation” corner aims to provide market practitioners with an overview of the changes to the Listing Rules, the required documents and the guidance on interpretations and procedures. The new requirements resulting from the rule changes apply to listing applications submitted on or after 1 October 2013. 

For applications submitted before 1 October 2013, please refer to Rules and Guidance for applications submitted before 1 October 2013
