    With the SEHK’s Listing Rules being subject to constant review and revision, the author offers important updates on amendments and fresh regulations introduced since the first edition. Beginning with the basics – What is a public company? What is a stock exchange? Hong Kong Listed Companies: Law & Practice 2nd Edition works its way methodically through the SEHK’s many provisions for regulation and compliance. It is a volume of depth and substance which sets the standard for financial industry reference books.

    The new 2nd Edition delivers more than 400 pages of new, and up-to-date commentary in relation to the Hong Kong Listing Rules:-

    • These include but not limited to extensive changes to the sponsor regulatory regime introduced in 2013 and the major listing reforms in 2018 which added three new chapters (Chapter 8A, 18C and 19A) to the listing rules aimed at attracting the listing of Pre-revenue Biotech and Innovative Companies, including those with Weighted Voting Rights (WVR) structures and providing a new secondary listing route for companies primary listed on certain Qualifying Exchanges.
    • More recent listing reforms in 2021 – covering the listing regime for overseas issuers, Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPAC), the SEHK’s new Corporate Governance Code and the new requirements in relation to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) – are also highlighted.
    • How to handle ongoing obligations on listed companies under the Listing Rules.
    • Ongoing obligations on listed companies and their shareholders under other legislation, primarily the Securities and Futures Ordinance Cap. 671 (such as market misconduct, insider dealing, disclosure of interests).


    For participants and stakeholders engaged in stock market activities, this second edition of Hong Kong Listed Companies: Law & Practice 2nd Edition is an essential companion, providing the ultimate guide with regard to the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong’s (SEHK) exhaustive regulatory regime.
