In the interests of a fair and continuous market, the Exchange requires any period of trading halt or suspension to be kept as short as reasonably practicable. In this regard, the issuer must use its reasonable endeavours to obtain all relevant consents (including regulatory consents) necessary to ensure the lifting of such trading halt or suspension.

Note: The Exchange considers that the continuation of any trading halt or suspension beyond such period as is absolutely necessary denies reasonable access to the market and prevents its proper functioning.
