13.55

(1) In the event of a circular being issued to the holders of any of the issuer's securities, the issuer shall issue a copy or summary of such circular to the holders of all its other securities (not being bearer securities) unless the contents of such circular are of no material concern to such other holders.

Note: Where there is a class of listed securities in bearer form, it may be sufficient to publish an announcement in accordance with rule 2.07C referring to the circular and giving an address or addresses from which copies can be obtained.
(2) All circulars sent to holders of the issuer's securities (and where an issuer's primary listing is or is to be on the Exchange, all circulars sent to holders of the issuer's securities on the Hong Kong register) must be in the English language and be accompanied by a Chinese translation. In respect of overseas members, it shall be sufficient for the issuer to mail an English language version of the circular if it contains a prominent statement in both English and Chinese to the effect that a Chinese translation of the circular is available from the issuer, on request. If the issuer's primary listing is or is to be on another stock exchange all circulars sent to holders of the issuer's securities must be in the English language or be accompanied by a certified translation.
