25.20

The following modifications and additional requirements apply to the contents of listing documents:
 
(1)    some of the items of information specified in Parts A and B of Appendix 1 may be inappropriate. In such a case, the item should be appropriately adapted so that equivalent information is given;
 
(2)    the listing document must contain a summary of all provisions of the constitutional documents of the PRC issuer in so far as they may affect shareholders' rights and protection and directors' powers (using, and covering at the least, the same subject headings as is required by Section 2 in Part C of Appendix 11 in respect of PRC issuers);
 
(3)    the listing document must contain a summary of the relevant PRC law; and
 
  Note:    In general, the relevant PRC law to be summarised normally would be expected to cover matters such as taxation on the PRC issuer's income and capital, tax (if any) deducted on distributions to shareholders, foreign exchange controls or restrictions, company law, securities regulations or other relevant laws or regulations, and any PRC law which regulates or limits the PRC issuer's major business(es) or the industry in which it mainly operates.
 
(4)    the documents to be published on the Exchange’s website and the issuer’s own website will be the documents corresponding to those mentioned in paragraph 52 of Part A and paragraph 42 of Part B of Appendix 1, and where any such documents are not in English or Chinese, a certified English or Chinese translation thereof must be published on the Exchange’s website and the issuer’s own website. In addition, where rule 25.20(3) applies, the PRC issuer must publish on the Exchange’s website and the issuer’s own website a copy of any statutes or regulations which are relevant to the summary of relevant PRC law. In particular cases, the Exchange may require other additional documents to be published on the Exchange’s website and the issuer’s own website.
