The Exchange Listing Rules (including Chapter 8) apply as much to issuers with or seeking a listing with a WVR structure, as other issuers of equity securities. This Chapter sets out rules and modifications to existing rules applicable to issuers with, or seeking, a listing with a WVR structure. For overseas issuers with a WVR structure with, or seeking, a secondary listing, the rules in this Chapter are subject to modification by rule 8A.46.

Issuers are encouraged to contact the Exchange if they envisage any difficulties in complying fully with the relevant requirements.
