    CONNECTED TRANSACTIONS

    The general regulatory and compliance regime in relation to connected transactions involving a company listed in Hong Kong

     Connected transactions, in general, involve transactions between a group of companies (including the company listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited) (Hong Kong Stock Exchange) and the connected persons; transactions between a group and third parties that may confer benefits to connected persons.  These transactions can be one-off or continuing, and include both capital and revenue nature transactions.

    Connected transactions involving a listed company in Hong Kong is mainly governed by Chapter 14A of the rules governing the listing of securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (Hong Kong Listing Rules) (or Chapter 20 of the rules governing the listing of securities on the Growth Enterprise Market of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (GEM Listing Rules)).

    The purpose of the relevant provisions in the Hong Kong Listing Rules and the GEM Listing Rules is to safeguard the interest of the shareholders and the general investing public against the person taking advantage of his/its position to control or influence a group of companies to enter into connected transactions.

    Connected persons are, in general, persons who can control or exercise significant influence over the group or who may benefit from transactions with the group. They include senior executives (including directors) and substantial shareholders of the listed company or its subsidiaries, and any persons closely associated with them and this include, in general, any non wholly-owned subsidiary of the listed company if it is substantially held by such senior executives and/or substantial shareholders (and/or their associates).

    In other circumstances, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange may also deem other persons as connected persons.

    Depending on the nature and size of the connected transactions, a listed company is required to make disclosure in announcements and annual reports, and sometimes, obtain approval from its shareholders.  Persons with materials interests in the relevant connected transactions cannot vote on the relevant shareholders’ resolution approving the transaction.  In relation to continuing connected transactions, they may also be subject to annual reviews by independent non-executive directors and the auditors.

    Some specific connected transactions are exempted or waived from the relevant requirements under the Hong Kong Listing Rules or the GEM Listing Rules.  These apply to connected transactions that are immaterial to the group, or where the risk of abuse by connected persons is low.  There are exemptions that partially or wholly exempt the connected transactions or the continuing connected transactions from the requirements of the Hong Kong Listing Rules or the GEM Listing Rules.  However, the Exchange has the power to specify that an exemption will not apply to a particular transaction.

    Moreover, the Exchange will aggregate a series of connected transactions and treat them as if they were one transaction if they were all completed within 12-month period or otherwise related.
