About the seminar:

The Securities and Futures (Amendment) Ordinance to statutorily oblige disclosure of price sensitive, or “inside” information by listed corporations in a timely manner was gazetted on 4 May 2012. The statutory disclosure regime will take effect on 1 January 2013 to give listed corporations sufficient time to prepare themselves to comply with the new requirements and to set up the necessary internal control systems.

At this seminar, the SFC will explain the salient features of the legislation and the issues concerning the implementation of the new regime.
