705

(1) An issuer must announce the financial statements for the full financial year (as set out in Appendix 7C) immediately after the figures are available, but in any event not later than 60 days after the relevant financial period.

Refer to Appendix 7C — Financial Statements and Dividend Announcements.
(2) An issuer must announce its financial statements for each of the first three quarters of its financial year (as set out in Appendix 7C) immediately after the figures are available, but in any event not later than 45 days after the quarter end if:
(a) its market capitalisation exceeded S$75 million as at 31 March 2003;
(b) it was listed after 31 March 2003 and its market capitalisation exceeded S$75 million at the time of listing (based on the initial public offering issue price); or
(c) its market capitalisation is S$75 million or higher on the last trading day of each calendar year, commencing from 31 December 2006. An issuer who falls within this category for the first time, will have an initial grace period of one year to prepare to meet the requirements in Rule 705(2).
(3)
(a) An issuer who falls within any of the categories in this Rule 705(2), must comply with the requirements in Rule 705(2), even if its market capitalisation subsequently decreases below S$75 million.
(b) An issuer whose market capitalisation does not exceed S$75 million must announce its first half financial statements (as set out in Appendix 7C) immediately after the figures are available, but in any event not later than 45 days after the relevant financial period.
(4) Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to the first announcement to be made by the issuer pursuant to Rules 705 (1) or (2) following its listing on the Exchange, where the time period between the date of its listing and the final date for the issuer to make the relevant announcement pursuant to Rule 705(1) or (2) above is less than 30 days, the issuer shall have 30 days from the relevant deadline to make the relevant announcements of the financial statements provided that the following conditions are satisfied:
(a) the extension is announced by the issuer at the time of the issuer's listing; and
(b) in the announcement referred to in paragraph (a), the issuer must confirm that there is no material adverse change to the financial position of the issuer since the date of its offer document issued in connection with its listing on the Exchange.
(5) In the case of an announcement of interim financial statements (quarterly or half-yearly, as applicable, but excluding full year financial statements), an issuer's directors must provide a confirmation that, to the best of their knowledge, nothing has come to the attention of the board of directors which may render the interim financial statements to be false or misleading in any material aspect. In order to make this confirmation, directors would not be expected to commission an audit of these financial statements. The confirmation may be signed by 2 directors on behalf of the board of directors.

Use of funds/cash by Mineral, oil and gas companies

(6) Mineral, oil and gas companies whose principal activities consist of exploration for minerals, oil or gas, must:
(a) make a quarterly announcement on the use of funds/cash for the quarter and a projection on the use of funds/cash for the next immediate quarter, including material assumptions, immediately after the figures are available but in any event not later than 45 days after the first three quarters of the financial year and not later than 60 days after the last quarter;
(b) provide a confirmation by its directors that, to the best of their knowledge, nothing has come to their attention which may render such information provided false or misleading in any material aspect. In order to make this confirmation, the directors would not be expected to commission an external audit or review of the statements. The confirmation may be signed by 2 directors on behalf of the board of directors.
(7) In the announcements required by Rule 705(1) and (6), a mineral, oil and gas company must also include details of exploration (including geophysical surveys), development and/or production activities undertaken by the issuer and a summary of the expenditure incurred on those activities, including explanations for any material variances with previous projections, for the period under review. If there has been no exploration, development and/or production activity respectively, that fact must be stated.
