Role of the Exchange
Subject to rule 12.15, no listing document may be issued until the Exchange has confirmed to the issuer that it has no further comments thereon.
In the case of a new applicant effecting a placing involving bookbuilding activities (as defined under the Code of Conduct) in connection with a New Listing, a new applicant must publish an OC Announcement on the Exchange’s website in accordance with rules 16.17 to 16.19 and Practice Note 5.
The Exchange reserves the right to oblige listed issuers to issue supplementary particulars and/or clarification announcements in circumstances where the Exchange is of the view that an issuer has failed to comply, in full, with the requirements of the GEM Listing Rules.
Any publication by an issuer pursuant to the GEM Listing Rules must be made in both the English and Chinese languages unless otherwise stated.
