Update No. 93
Various amendments to the Listing Rules
We have reprinted pages of the Listing Rules. The reprinted pages incorporate amendments to streamline the filing requirements for new listing applications and listing of additional equity securities by listed issuers as well as amendments relating to fees and charges.
We also enclose the filing instructions.
Streamlining of filing requirements
We have amended the Listing Rules to streamline the filing requirements for new listing applications and listing of additional equity securities by listed issuers. The amendments implement the proposals in the "Consultation Conclusions on Proposed Changes to Filing and Checklist Requirements for Listing of Equity Securities" published in October this year.
Amendments relating to fees and charges
We have amended Appendix 8 to abolish the fee for additional security enquiry pages in the Automatic Order Matching and Execution System levied on an issuer with more than one class of equity securities listed and clarify that all fees or charges payable to the Exchange, including the initial listing fee and annual listing fee, are to be net of all taxes, levies and duties.
Coming into effect
The amendments to streamline filing requirements will come into effect on 2 November 2009.
The amendments relating to fees and charges became effective on 1 October 2009.
