The ACC Hong Kong Board of Directors invites you to the following presentation, hosted by Charltons.
Sandwiches and drinks will be provided. 1 Law Society of Hong Kong CPD point has been applied for. New York and California Approved Jurisdiction policy may apply.
The presentation will cover HKEx’s new listing regime for emerging and innovative companies. Implemented on 30 April 2018, the new regime introduced the most radical changes to Hong Kong’s listing rules in 25 years. As a result, HKEx has regained its position as the world’s top IPO fund-raising market. The presentation will look at the requirements for listing innovative companies with WVR structures and pre-revenue biotech companies and the new secondary listing route for innovative companies (including PRC companies) already listed on the NYSE, Nasdaq or LSE. With a strong pipeline of companies looking to list under the new regime, the tech and biotech sectors are increasingly important for Hong Kong lawyers.
