Regulatory Enforcement in Relation to Listed Companies' Transactions
Regulators have continued their efforts in supervising the activities of listed companies and their directors with a clear intention to combat corporate fraud and misconduct, starting from the early stage of a transaction. The SFC has issued statements reminding listed company directors of their corporate acquisitions and disposals obligations, and the types of misconduct that can trigger SFC's scrutiny and leading to possible intervention.
