25.10

Under rule 11.04, the Exchange requires a new applicant to make disclosure where it has a director, or controlling shareholder and, in relation only to the initial listing document, substantial shareholder (including the respective close associates of each) with a business or interest which competes or may compete with the business of the group. In this connection, in the case of a new applicant which is a PRC issuer, "controlling shareholder" means any shareholder or other person or group of persons together entitled to exercise, or control the exercise of 30% (or such other amount as may from time to time be specified in applicable PRC law as being the level for triggering a mandatory general offer or for otherwise establishing legal or management control over a business enterprise) or more of the voting power at general meetings of the new applicant or who is in a position to control the composition of the majority of the board of directors of the new applicant. For the purposes of this rule, the Exchange will normally not consider a PRC Governmental Body (as defined in rule 25.04) as a controlling shareholder of a PRC issuer.
