Mr. Terence Lau, Senior Associate of our corporate finance department, delivered a CPD webinar on “An Overview of a Listing Project” on 8 September 2021. The webinar covered a broad range of topics such as listing criteria, application procedure, reorganisation, prospectus drafting, share offer and post-listing compliance, and attracted a substantial number of attendees.
At the beginning of the webinar, Terence offered an in-depth analysis of the IPO procedure in Hong Kong and revealed the key issues involved in satisfying the increasingly scrutinised listing criteria of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. In particular, he highlighted the recent amendments to the financial requirements of a listing project and provided the attendees with recent examples extracted from relevant listing decisions and guidance letters which could affect suitability for listing.
Terence then explained the roles of various professional parties, the purpose of different documentations involved in each milestone date, and a sample listing project timeline. By way of elaboration, Terence shared some of his professional experiences in prospectus drafting and the challenges faced by sponsors and legal practitioners in articulating the essential disclosures of a prospectus.
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the CPD was delivered via a webinar. Nevertheless, positive feedbacks were received from the attendees and the engaging webinar was concluded with questions from the floor.
