Smart Talk: New Economy & Hurdles for Startups' IPOs

17 January 2018

8 FEBRUARY: With the Hang Seng Index trading at record highs, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange has dominated headlines. The introduction of the New Board further piques IPO hopefuls and shareholders' interest. To address the changes brought by the New Board, we are pleased to offer our advice during a seminar at Cyberport. Our experts will drill down the Listing Rules' Amendments, and how startups from the New Economy sectors can go public. 

Key takeaways include:

  • Update on the Listing Rules (effective on 15 Feb 2018) and how that uplifts the threshold for going public in Hong Kong
  • Implication to desirability in listing of GEM Board
  • Listing application experience sharing: commonly raised queries from SEHK and potential rejection reasons from legal and accounting perspectives
