Pursuant to the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited and the Company’s Bye-laws, the Company supplies Corporate Communications to shareholders by electronic means through the Company’s website and the HKEXnews website of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (the “Electronic Version”), provided that the relevant shareholders have consented (or are deemed to have consented) to receiving the Electronic Version.
The Company will seek consent from each new registered shareholder of receiving the Electronic Version of all future Corporate Communications. If the Company does not receive any response from the registered shareholder indicating his/her objection to access Corporate Communications by electronic means through the Company’s website within a period of 28 days, the registered shareholder will be deemed to have elected the Electronic Version instead of the Printed Version, and a notification of posting of Corporate Communications on the Company’s website will be sent to him/her in the future by email or, if no email address is provided, by post to the registered shareholder’s address as it appears in the Company’s register of members.
The Company will despatch the Printed Version of Corporate Communications (in the registered shareholders’ choice of language) to their addresses pursuant to their request (please see below for details).
A registered shareholder who has elected (is deemed to have elected) the Electronic Version but for any reason has difficulty in accessing the relevant Corporate Communication(s) electronically, or wishes to receive printed copies, the Company will promptly upon his/her request send the Printed Version to him/her free of charge.
A notification of posting of Corporate Communications on the Company’s website will also be sent by post to non-registered shareholders whose shares in the Company (whether or not held through a broker or custodian) are kept in the Central Clearing and Settlement System (CCASS). Non-registered shareholders may request to receive the Printed Version of Corporate Communications (please see below for details).
Registered shareholders and non-registered shareholders may at any time change their choice of language or means of receipt of all future Corporate Communications by giving written notice to the Company’s Hong Kong Branch Share Registrar (please see below for details).
Shareholders who have any queries in relation to election of language and means of receipt of Corporate Communications may call the enquiry hotline of the Company’s Hong Kong Branch Share Registrar on (852) 2980 1333 during business hours (9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Hong Kong public holidays).
