Update No. 102

20 May 2011

Dear Sirs,

Ex-entitlement Trading and Shareholder Approval

We enclose reprinted pages of the Listing Rules and the filing instructions. The reprinted pages incorporate amendments to implement proposals in the Consultation Conclusions on Ex-entitlement Trading and Shareholder Approval published on 20 May 2011.

We have amended the Listing Rules to:-

•   Prevent a share from trading ex-entitlement before shareholder approval;
•   Require the record date to be set at least 3 business days after the date of shareholder approval (i.e. at least one cum-trading day will be provided);
•   Require a minimum of one last cum-trading day after the general meeting; and
•   Apply the proposed changes to all conditional entitlements that are subject to general meeting approval.

Coming into effect

The amendments will come into effect on 20 June 2011.

Yours faithfully,

For and on behalf of
The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited
