31.  How can I find information under Listed Company Information Search?

If you are looking for information from companies currently listed, you should go to Listed Company Information Search - Current Securities.  For delisted companies or companies that did not go listing after publishing a prospectus, you should go to Listed Company Information Search - Delisted Securities and enter your search criteria into the search form.  You can use a single search key such as stock code, stock name, time period, headline category, document type or a combination of search keys.


32.  Can I search for latest information released by a company under Listed Company Information Search?

Yes.  The Listed Company Information Search provides announcements, circulars and corporate communications issued by companies up to the current day.


33.  I am not certain of the name of the company and I do not know the stock code.  What should I do?

You can start a search by entering part of the company name.  A list of company names which include the letters you entered will appear in alphabetical order.  You can also click the List of Stock Codes/Stock names at the top of the page to dig out the exact name or stock code of the company.  A double click of the name or stock code will take you to a search form where you can immediately start your search.


34.  I am looking for information from a listed company that changed its name recently.  Will the name change affect the result of my search?

No.  All information submitted by the company during the period you specified - no matter what name it was submitted under - will be included in the search results.


35.  I did a search under "Listed Company Information Search - Current Securities" for announcements of a particular listed company.  The search results contained announcements issued by another company.  Why?

The company you were looking up changed its name during the period covered by your search.  All issuer announcements published by that particular legal entity, regardless of its name at the time of publication, appeared in your search results.


36.  I did a search by stock code under "Listed Company Information Search - Delisted Securities" for announcements of a particular delisted company.   The search results contained announcements issued by another company.  Why?

There are two possible reasons.  First, the delisted company may have changed its name during the period covered by your search.  When that happens, the search results return all announcements issued by the delisted company whether they were published under its old name or its new name.  Second, the stock code you used in your search may have been assigned to different companies at different times.  The stock code of a delisted company may be reassigned to another company before it is listed.  If the second company is delisted later, then any search of delisted securities with that particular stock code would produce results containing announcements by both delisted companies.  Nonetheless, users should be able to differentiate the archive documents of the delisted companies based on the company names and the announcements' release dates, which would be quite far apart.


37.  I did several searches under Listed Company Information Search.  Occasionally, the number of records obtained from English interface was different from the number obtained from Chinese interface.  I am sure that the search criteria used were the same.  Why were the results different?

The discrepancy between the number of English and Chinese documents found is due to that fact that listed issuers are allowed to submit only one version (English or Chinese) of some types of documents.
