    • Appendix 2.2 Articles of Association

      Cross referenced from Rules 210(7), 211(5), 246(3) and 409(2)

      1. The Articles of Association and other constituent documents of an issuer must contain the provisions set out below. Only in exceptional circumstances will the Exchange grant an exemption from compliance with any of the provisions.
      (1) Capital
      (a) The total number of issued preference shares shall not exceed the total number of issued ordinary shares issued at any time.
      (b) The rights attaching to shares of a class other than ordinary shares must be expressed.
      (c) Whether the company has power to issue further preference capital ranking equally with, or in priority to preference shares already issued must be expressed.
      (d) Preference shareholders must have the same rights as ordinary shareholders as regards receiving notices, reports and balance sheets, and attending general meetings of the issuer. Preference shareholders must also have the right to vote at any meeting convened for the purpose of reducing the capital, or winding up, or sanctioning a sale of the undertaking of the issuer, or where the proposition to be submitted to the meeting directly affects their rights and privileges, or when the dividend on the preference shares is in arrear for more than six months.
      (e) Capital paid on shares in advance of calls shall not, whilst carrying interest, confer a right to participate in profits.
      (f) Subject to any direction to the contrary that may be given by the company in the general meeting or except as permitted under the Exchange's listing rules, all new shares shall, before issue, be offered to such persons who as at the date of the offer are entitled to receive notices from the company of general meetings in proportion, as far as circumstances admit, to the amount of the existing shares to which they are entitled. The offer shall be made by notice specifying the number of shares offered, and limiting a time within which the offer, if not accepted, will be deemed to be declined. After the expiration of the aforesaid time or on the receipt of an intimation from the person to whom the offer is made that he declines to accept the shares offered, the directors may dispose of those shares in a manner as they think most beneficial to the company. The directors may likewise dispose of any new shares which (by reason of the ratio which the new shares bear to shares held by persons entitled to an offer of new shares) cannot, in the opinion of the directors, be conveniently offered under this provision.
      (g) Subject to the provisions of the Companies Act, if any share certificates shall be defaced, worn-out, destroyed, lost or stolen, it may be renewed on such evidence being produced and a letter of indemnity (if required) being given by the shareholder, transferee, person entitled, purchaser, member company of the Exchange or on behalf of its/their client(s) as the directors of the company shall require, and in the case of defacement or wearing out, on delivery of the old certificate and in any case on payment of such sum not exceeding two dollars as the directors may from time to time require. In the case of destruction, loss or theft, a shareholder or person entitled to whom such renewed certificate is given shall also bear the loss and pay to the company all expenses incidental to the investigations by the company of the evidence of such destruction or loss.
      (2) Certificate

      Every member shall be entitled to receive share certificates in reasonable denominations for his holding and where a charge is made for certificates, such charge shall not exceed two dollars.
      (3) Forfeiture and Lien

      (a) The company's lien on shares and dividends from time to time declared in respect of such shares, shall be restricted to unpaid calls and instalments upon the specific shares in respect of which such monies are due and unpaid, and to such amounts as the company may be called upon by law to pay in respect of the shares of the member or deceased member.
      (b) If any shares are forfeited and sold, any residue after the satisfaction of the unpaid calls and accrued interest and expenses, shall be paid to the person whose shares have been forfeited, or his executors, administrators or assignees or as he directs.
      (4) Transfer and Transmission

      (a) The company will accept for registration a transfer in the form approved by the Exchange.
      (b) Any fee charged on the transfer of securities shall not exceed two dollars per transfer.
      (c) There shall be no restriction on the transfer of fully paid securities except where required by law or by the Rules, Bye-Laws or Listing Rules of the Exchange.
      (d) Any articles which entitle a company to refuse to register more than three persons as joint holders of a share must be expressed to exclude the case of executors or trustees of a deceased shareholder.
      (5) Modification of Rights

      The repayment of preference capital other than redeemable preference capital, or any alteration of preference shareholders' rights, may only be made pursuant to a special resolution of the preference shareholders concerned, provided always that where the necessary majority for such a special resolution is not obtained at the meeting, consent in writing if obtained from the holders of three-fourths of the preference shares concerned within two months of the meeting, shall be as valid and effectual as a special resolution carried at the meeting.
      (6) Borrowing Powers

      The scope of the borrowing powers of the board of directors shall be expressed.
      (7) Meetings

      The notices convening meetings shall specify the place, day and hour of the meeting, and shall be given to all shareholders at least fourteen days before the meeting (excluding the date of notice and the date of meeting). Where notices contain special resolutions, they must be given to shareholders at least twenty-one days before the meeting (excluding the date of notice and the date of meeting). Any notice of a meeting called to consider special business shall be accompanied by a statement regarding the effect of any proposed resolutions in respect of such businesses. At least fourteen days' notice of every such meeting shall be given by advertisement in the daily press and in writing to each stock exchange on which the company is listed.
      (8) Voting and Proxies
      (a) A holder of ordinary shares shall be entitled to be present and to vote at any general meeting in respect of any share or shares upon which all calls due to the company have been paid.
      (b) In the case of joint holders of shares, any one of such persons may vote, but if more than one of such persons is present at a meeting, the person whose name stands first on the Register of Members shall alone be entitled to vote.
      (c) A proxy need not be a member of the company.
      (d) An instrument of proxy shall be deemed to confer authority to demand or join in demanding a poll.
      (e) A proxy shall be entitled to vote on a show of hands on any matter at any general meeting.
      (9) Directors
      (a) All the directors of the company shall be natural persons.
      (b) Where provision is made for the directors to appoint a person as a director either to fill a casual vacancy, or as an addition to the board, any director so appointed shall hold office only until the next annual general meeting of the company, and shall then be eligible for re-election.
      (c) Fees payable to non-executive directors shall be by a fixed sum, and not by a commission on or a percentage of profits or turnover. Salaries payable to executive directors may not include a commission on or a percentage of turnover.
      (d) Fees payable to directors shall not be increased except pursuant to a resolution passed at a general meeting, where notice of the proposed increase has been given in the notice convening the meeting.
      (e) A director shall not vote in regard to any contract or proposed contract or arrangement in which he has directly or indirectly a personal material interest.
      (f) [Deleted]
      (g) The office of a director shall become vacant should he become of unsound mind or bankrupt during his term of office.
      (h) A person who is not a retiring director shall be eligible for election to office of director at any general meeting if some member intending to propose him has, at least eleven clear days before the meeting, left at the office of the company a notice in writing duly signed by the nominee, giving his consent to the nomination and signifying his candidature for the office, or the intention of such member to propose him. In the case of a person recommended by the directors for election, nine clear days' notice only shall be necessary. Notice of each and every candidature for election to the board of directors shall be served on the registered holders of shares at least seven days prior to the meeting at which the election is to take place.
      (i) Where a managing director or a person holding an equivalent position is appointed for a fixed term, the term shall not exceed five years.
      (j) A managing director or a person holding an equivalent position shall be subject to the control of the board.
      (k) The continuing directors may act notwithstanding any vacancy in the board, provided that if their number is reduced below the minimum number fixed by or pursuant to the regulations of the company, the continuing directors may, except in an emergency, act only for the purpose of increasing the number of directors to such minimum number, or to summon a general meeting of the company.
      (l) A director may appoint a person approved by a majority of his co-directors to act as his alternate, provided that any fee paid by the company to the alternate shall be deducted from that director's remuneration. No director may act as an alternate director of the company. A person may not act as an alternate director for more than one director of the company.
      (m) Where two directors form a quorum, the chairman of a meeting at which only such a quorum is present, or at which only two directors are competent to vote on the matter at issue, shall not have a casting vote.
      (n) Where a director is disqualifed from acting as a director in any jurisdiction for reasons other than on technical grounds, he must immediately resign from the board.
      (10) Accounts

      The interval between the close of an issuer's financial year and the date of its annual general meeting (if any) shall not exceed four months.
      (11) Winding Up

    • Appendix 7.1 Corporate Disclosure Policy

      Cross-referenced from Rule 703(4)

      Part I Introduction

      1 This Appendix sets out the Exchange's corporate disclosure policy.
      2 Rule 703(4)(a) obligates an issuer to provide timely disclosure of material information in accordance with this policy. The Exchange regards disclosure as fundamentally important to the operation of a fair and efficient market for the trading of securities.

      Part II Issuers' Obligations Under Rule 703

      3 Under Rule 703, an issuer must disclose information:—
      (a) necessary to avoid the establishment of a false market in its securities. A false market may exist if information is not made available that would, or would be likely to, influence persons who commonly invest in securities in deciding whether or not to subscribe for, or buy or sell the securities. For this reason, an issuer may be required to clarify or confirm a rumour (see "Clarification or Confirmation of Rumours or Reports" below); or
      (b) that would be likely to have a material effect on the price or value of securities of that issuer.
      4 Material information includes information, known to the issuer, concerning the issuer's property, assets, business, financial condition and prospects; mergers and acquisitions; and dealings with employees, suppliers and customers; material contracts or development projects, whether entered into in the ordinary course of business or otherwise; as well as information concerning a significant change in ownership of the issuer's securities owned by insiders, or a change in effective or voting control of the issuer, and any developments that affect materially the present or potential rights or interests of the issuer's shareholders.
      5 The fact that information is generally available is not a reason for failing to disclose under Rule 703. For example, if an issuer releases material information to the media but did not announce it to the market via SGXNET, the issuer is in breach of Rule 703. Rule 702 requires an issuer to make announcements via SGXNET, unless specified otherwise.
      6 It is the responsibility of each issuer to disclose material information in its possession as required by the listing rules.
      7 Information must not be divulged to any person (outside of the issuer and its advisers) in such a way as to place in a privileged dealing position any person. Information must not be released in such a way that transactions in the issuer's listed securities (whether on market or off market) may be entered into at prices which do not reflect the latest publicly available information.
      8 Some Events Requiring Disclosure Under Rule 703

      Under Rule 703, the following events, while not comprising a complete list of all the situations which may require disclosure, are likely to require immediate disclosure:—
      (a) A joint venture, merger or acquisition;
      (b) The declaration or omission of dividends or the determination of earnings;
      (c) Firm evidence of significant improvement or deterioration in near-term earnings prospects;
      (d) A subdivision of shares or stock dividends;
      (e) The acquisition or loss of a significant contract;
      (f) The purchase or sale of a significant asset;
      (g) A significant new product or discovery;
      (h) The public or private sale of a significant amount of additional securities of the issuer;
      (i) A change in effective control or a significant change in management;
      (j) A call of securities for redemption;
      (k) The borrowing of a significant amount of funds;
      (l) Occurrence of an event of default under debt or other securities or financing or sale agreements;
      (m) Significant litigation;
      (n) A significant change in capital investment plans. Examples include building of factories, increasing plant and machinery, and increasing production lines;
      (o) A significant dispute or disputes with sub-contractors, customers or suppliers, or with any parties;
      (p) A tender offer for another company's securities; and
      (q) A valuation of the real assets of the group that has a significant impact on the group's financial position and/or performance. A copy of the valuation report must be made available for inspection at the issuer's registered office during normal business hours for 3 months from the date of the announcement.

      Part III Exception to Rule 703

      9 Rule 703 includes two exceptions from the requirement to make immediate disclosure. One allows information not to be disclosed if to do so breaches the law (Rule 703(2)). The other allows an issuer to temporarily refrain from publicly disclosing particular information, provided that the information is of a certain type, a reasonable person would not expect it to be disclosed and the information is kept confidential (Rule 703(3)).
      10 An issuer can rely on the exception under Rule 703(3) while each of the three conditions is satisfied. Should any of the conditions cease to be satisfied, the exception will similarly cease to be available, and the issuer must disclose the information immediately. The three conditions are:—

      Condition 1: A reasonable person would not expect the information to be disclosed
      (a) A reasonable person would not expect information to be disclosed if such disclosure would prejudice the ability of the issuer to pursue its corporate objective. Also, a reasonable person would not expect the disclosure of an inordinate amount of detail.
      (b) If conditions 2 and 3 are satisfied but a reasonable person would expect the information to be disclosed, the exception is not available. In considering if this condition is satisfied, the Exchange will balance the needs of the market and the interests of the issuer while having regard to the principle on which the listing rule is based.
      Condition 2: The information is confidential

      Generally, information may be regarded as confidential if the issuer has control of the use that can be made of the information. Confidentiality also means that no one in possession of the information is entitled to trade in that issuer's listed securities. In this regard, unusual activity in the issuer's securities may suggest that the information is no longer confidential. If so, this condition is not met. (See also "Confidentiality")

      Condition 3: The information is of the type in one of the listed categories.

      If the information is not of the type in one of the listed categories, or if it loses that character, then the condition is not satisfied.

      Part IV Examples of the Operation of Rule 703

      11 The following examples explain in more detail the operation of Rule 703. They illustrate the general principles only and do not affect the operation of the listing rule.
      (a) Example (1): Information concerning an incomplete proposal or negotiation

      In the course of a successful negotiation for the acquisition of another company, for example, the only information known to each party at the outset may be the willingness of the other to hold discussions. Shortly thereafter, it may become apparent to the parties that it is likely an agreement can be reached. Finally, agreement in-principle may be reached on specific terms. In such circumstances, an issuer need not issue a public announcement at each stage of the negotiations, describing the current state of constantly changing facts but may await agreement in-principle on specific terms. If, on the other hand, progress in the negotiations should stabilise at some other point, disclosure should then be made if the information is material.
      (b) Example (2): Information generated for internal management purposes

      Disclosure of an issuer's internal estimates or projections of its earnings or of other data relating to its affairs is not necessary. If such estimates or projections are released, they should be prepared carefully, be soundly based and should be realistic. The estimates or projections should be qualified, if necessary, to ensure that they are properly understood. Should subsequent developments indicate that performance will not match earlier estimates or projections, this too should be reported promptly and the variances adequately explained.

      Part V Confidentiality

      12 Where an issuer relies on Rule 703(3) to temporarily withhold material information, the strictest confidentiality must be maintained. Access to the information should be restricted, to the extent possible, to the highest possible levels of management and should be disclosed to officers, employees and others only on a need-to-know basis. Distribution of paperwork and other data should be kept to a minimum.
      13 It may be appropriate to require each person who gains access to the information to report to the issuer, any transaction which he effects in the issuer's securities.
      14 During this period, the issuer should keep a close watch on the trading activity of its securities and be prepared to make an immediate public announcement if necessary.

      Part VI Clarification or Confirmation of Rumours or Reports

      15 Public circulation of information, whether by an article published in a newspaper, by a broker's market letter, or by word-of-mouth, either correct or false, which has not been substantiated by the issuer and which is likely to have, or has had, an effect on the price of the issuer's listed securities or would be likely to have a bearing on investment decisions must be clarified or confirmed promptly.
      16 If rumours indicate that material information has been leaked, a frank and explicit announcement is required. If rumours are in fact false or inaccurate, they should be promptly denied or clarified. A statement to the effect that the issuer knows of no corporate developments that could account for the unusual market activity can have a salutary effect. In addition, a reasonable effort should be made to bring the announcement to the attention of the party that initially distributed the information (in the case of an erroneous newspaper article, for example, by sending a copy of the announcement to the newspaper's financial editor, or in the case of an erroneous market letter, by sending a copy to the broker responsible for the letter). If rumours are correct or there are developments, an immediate statement to the public as to the state of negotiations or corporate plans in the rumoured area must be made. Such statements are essential despite the business inconvenience which may result, even if the matter had yet to be presented to the issuer's board of directors for consideration.
      17 In the case of a rumour or report predicting future sales, earnings or other data, no response from the issuer is ordinarily required. However, the issuer must make a prompt announcement so that the market remains properly informed if the rumour or report is materially incorrect and may mislead investors, or is specific enough to suggest that information came from an inside source, or the market moves in a way that appears to be referable to the rumour or report.

      Part VII Unusual Trading Activity

      18 Where unusual trading activity in an issuer's securities occurs without any apparent publicly available information which could account for the activity, it may signify trading by persons who are acting on unannounced material information or on a rumour or report, whether true or false. Unusual market activity may not be traceable either to insider trading or to a rumour or report. Nevertheless, the market activity itself may be misleading to investors, who may assume that a sudden and appreciable change in the price of the issuer's securities reflects a corresponding change in its business or prospects.
      19 Similarly, unusual trading volume, even when not accompanied by a significant change in price, tends to encourage rumours and give rise to excessive speculative trading activity which may be unrelated to actual developments in the issuer's affairs.
      20 In such situations, the issuer should undertake a review to seek the causes of the unusual trading activity in its securities. The issuer should consider whether any information about its affairs, which would account for the activity, has recently been publicly disclosed, whether there is any material information that has not been publicly disclosed (in which case, the unusual trading activity may signify that a "leak" has occurred), and whether the issuer is the subject of a rumour or report. The issuer should respond promptly to any enquiries made by the Exchange concerning the unusual trading activity and may be guided by the following:—
      (a) If the issuer determines that the unusual trading activity results from material information that has been publicly disseminated via SGXNET, generally no further announcement is required. However, if the market activity indicates that such information may have been misinterpreted, it may be helpful, after discussion with the Exchange, to issue an announcement to clarify the matter;
      (b) If the unusual trading activity results from the "leak" of material information, the information in question must be announced promptly. If the unusual trading activity results from a false rumour or report, the Exchange's policy on correction of such rumours and reports, (discussed in "Clarification or Confirmation of Rumours or Reports") should be observed; and
      (c) If the issuer is unable to determine the cause of the unusual trading activity, the Exchange may suggest that the issuer makes a public announcement to the effect that there have been no undisclosed recent developments affecting the issuer or its affairs which would account for the unusual trading activity.

      Part VIII Policy on Thorough Public Dissemination

      21 Material information must be disclosed when it arises, even if during trading hours. The Exchange will expect the issuer to request a trading halt to facilitate the dissemination of the material information during trading hours. As a guide, a trading halt requested for dissemination of material information will last at least half an hour after the release of the material information, or such other period as the Exchange considers it appropriate. The issuer may request a temporary suspension if it is unable to release the material information by the end of the trading halt. Otherwise, the Exchange will consider whether a temporary suspension in trading of the issuer's securities is necessary to enable the material information to be properly disseminated. As a guide, the temporary suspension may last half an hour after the announcement has been released to the Exchange.
      22 Public disclosure of material information must be made by an announcement released to the Exchange via SGXNET. To facilitate the dissemination of information, copies of the announcement may be provided simultaneously to newspapers and newswire services.
      23 The Exchange recommends that issuers observe an "open door" policy in dealing with analysts, journalists, stockholders and others. However, under no circumstances should disclosure of material information be made on an individual or selective basis to analysts, stockholders, or other persons unless such information has previously been fully disclosed and disseminated to the public. If material information is inadvertently disclosed at meetings with analysts or others, it must be publicly disseminated as promptly as possible by the means described in this Part.
      24 The Exchange recognizes that there may be limited instances where selective disclosure is necessary. One example is the pursuit of the issuer's business or corporate objectives, such as when the issuer is undertaking a major corporate exercise. Another example is due diligence when the issuer is the subject of an acquisition. In these circumstances, selective disclosure may be required to facilitate the exercise. However, such disclosure should be made on a need to know basis and subject to appropriate confidentiality restraints.

      Part IX Content and Preparation of Public Announcement

      25 The content of a press release or other public announcement is as important as its timing. Each announcement should:—
      (a) be factual, clear and succinct;
      (b) contain sufficient quantitative information to allow investors to evaluate its relative importance to the activities of the issuer;
      (c) be balanced and fair. Thus, the announcement should avoid:—
      (i) omission of important unfavourable facts, or the slighting of such facts (for example by "burying" them at the end of a press release);
      (ii) presentation of favourable possibilities as certain, or as more probable than is actually the case;
      (iii) presentation of projections without sufficient qualification or without sufficient factual basis;
      (iv) negative statements phrased to create a positive implication, for example, "The company cannot now predict whether the development will have a materially favourable effect on its earnings," (implying that the effect will be favourable even if not materially favourable), or "The company expects that the development will not have a materially favourable effect on earnings in the immediate future," (implying that the development will eventually have a materially favourable effect); and
      (v) use of promotional jargon calculated to excite rather than to inform;
      (d) avoid over-technical language, and should be expressed to the extent possible in language comprehensible to the layman; and
      (e) explain the consequences or effects of the information on the issuer's future prospects. If the consequences or effects cannot be assessed, explain why.
      26 The following guidelines for the preparation of press releases and other public announcements should help issuers ensure that the content of such announcements meet the principles discussed in paragraph 25:—
      (a) Every announcement should be prepared or reviewed by (i) an official of the issuer familiar with the matters to be disclosed, and (ii) an official of the issuer familiar with the requirements of the Exchange and any applicable requirements of securities laws;
      (b) Since skill and experience are important to the preparation and editing of accurate, fair and balanced public announcements, the Exchange recommends that a limited group of individuals within the issuer be given this assignment on a continuing basis; and
      (c) Review of press releases and other public announcements by legal counsel is often desirable or necessary, depending on the importance and complexity of the announcement.

      Part X Policy on Insider Trading

      27 Issuers and parties who may be regarded as insiders should be fully aware of the provisions in any applicable legislation on insider trading.
      28 Persons who come into possession of material information, before its public release, are considered insiders for the purposes of the Exchange's corporate disclosure policies. Such persons include substantial shareholders, directors, executive officers and other employees, and frequently also include the issuer's lawyers, accountants, bankers, investment bankers, public relations consultants, advertising agencies, consultants, valuers and other third parties. The associates (as defined in "Definitions and Interpretation") of, and those under the control of, insiders may also be regarded as insiders. Where an issuer is involved in the negotiation of an acquisition or transaction, the other parties to the negotiation may also be regarded as insiders.
      29 Issuers should make insiders (and others who have access to material information on the issuer before it is publicly disclosed) aware that trading in the issuer's securities while in possession of undisclosed material information or tipping such information is an offence under Singapore's securities laws and may also give rise to civil liability. Issuers are advised to refer to the Best Practices Guide which provides guidance on the principles and best practices with regard to dealings by the directors and employees of the issuers in their respective issuer's securities.
      30 Issuers should establish, publish and enforce effective procedures applicable to the purchase and sale of the securities of the issuer and listed members of its group by officers, directors, employees and other insiders. The procedures should be designed not only to prevent improper trading, but also to avoid any question of the propriety of insider purchases or sales.

      Part XI Role of Market Surveillance

      31 An issuer should monitor the trading in its securities to detect any unusual trading activity. Where such unusual trading activity is observed, issuers should note Part VII above. The Exchange also monitors trading of listed securities. Where there is unusual trading activity in a listed security, and it appears to the Exchange that the unusual trading activity cannot be explained by known factors, the Exchange may require the issuer to make an announcement. The announcement should, inter alia, state whether the issuer and its directors are aware of the reasons for the unusual trading activity and whether there is any material information which has not been publicly disclosed. If the issuer or its directors are aware of any matters concerning the substantial shareholders that may account for the unusual trading activity, they must take this into consideration when responding to any query by the Exchange.
