Update No. 121
Amendments to the Main Board Listing Rules
We enclose reprinted pages of the Listing Rules and filing instructions. The reprinted pages incorporate amendments to implement the proposals of the "Consultation Conclusions on Delisting and Other Rule Amendments" published on 25 May 2018.
We have amended the Listing Rules to:
There are other Rule amendments to (i) remove a bright line trading halt requirement where a major (or above) transaction has not been announced by an issuer, in which case a trading suspension may still be required if the transaction is inside information, and (ii) expedite the process for the Exchange directing resumption of trading, with a view to keeping any trading suspension to a minimum.
Coming into effect
The amendments will come into effect on 1 August 2018.
