An issuer with a WVR structure must include the warning "A company controlled through weighted voting rights" on the front page of all listing documents, periodic financial reports, circulars, notifications and announcements required by these rules and describe the WVR structure, the issuer's rationale for having it and the associated risks for shareholders prominently in its listing documents and periodic financial reports. This warning statement must inform prospective investors of the potential risks of investing in an issuer with a WVR structure and that they should make the decision to invest only after due and careful consideration.
