After listing, a listed issuer with a WVR structure must not change the terms of a class of its shares carrying weighted voting rights to increase the weighted voting rights attached to that class.
Note: If a listed issuer wishes to change the terms of a class of its shares carrying weighted voting rights to reduce those rights it may do so but must, in addition to complying with any requirements under law, first obtain the prior approval of the Exchange and, if approval is granted, must announce the change.
