ARRANGEMENTS REGARDING DISSEMINATION OF CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS

(1) Current Arrangement

Under the current arrangement, the Company supplies or makes available the Corporate Communications of the Company (other than Actionable Corporate Communication) to shareholders by electronic means through the website of the Company (the “Company Website”) and the website of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited at www.hkexnews.hk (the “HKEXnews Website”, together with the Company Website, the “Websites”), if the relevant shareholders have consented (or are deemed to have consented) to receive the Websites version of the Corporate Communications, as described in section (2) below. Printed form of the Corporate Communications will be sent to those shareholders who have made written requests, or whose consent (express or deemed) has not been sought.

Actionable Corporate Communication refers to any Corporate Communication that seeks instructions from securities holders of the Company on how they wish to exercise their rights or make an election as securities holders of the Company. Pursuant to the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited, the Company must send Actionable Corporate Communications to securities holders individually and cannot comply with a rule requirement by making the Actionable Corporate communications available only through the Websites. Under the current arrangement, Actionable Corporate Communications of the Company will be sent in printed form to securities holders individually. 

(2) Electronic Dissemination of Corporate Communications (other than Actionable Corporate Communications)

The English and Chinese versions of the Corporate Communications of the Company are available on the Websites. Shareholders and investors who wish to be notified of the Corporate Communications published by the Company may also subscribe for the News Alerts service on the HKEX website.

For registered shareholders, each of them will be asked individually by the Company to agree that the Company may make available future Corporate Communications by means of the Websites version. If the Company has not received a response indicating the shareholder’s objection within a period of 28 days, the registered shareholder will be deemed to have elected the Websites version instead of a printed version, and a notification of the posting of the relevant Corporate Communications on the Company Website will be sent to the shareholder by email, or if no email address is provided by the shareholder, by post at the address recorded on the register of members of the Company.  

A registered shareholder who has elected (or is deemed to have elected) the Websites version but for any reason has difficulty in accessing the relevant Corporate Communications posted on the Company Website, or wishes to receive printed copies of such Corporate Communications, the Company will promptly upon request send the printed version free of charge – see section (3) below for details. 

For non-registered shareholders1, the notification of posting of the Corporate Communications on the Company Website will be sent by post.  Non-registered shareholders may also request to receive the printed version of Corporate Communications – see section (3) below for details. 

(3) Election of Language and Means of Receipt of Corporate Communications

Upon publication of a relevant Corporate Communication by the Company, a registered or non-registered shareholder who wishes to receive the relevant Corporate Communication in printed form or in a language version other than the previously chosen one may complete and submit the relevant request form to Computershare Hong Kong Investor Services Limited, the Hong Kong Share Registrar of the Company (the “HK Share Registrar”). 

Registered and non-registered shareholders may at any time change their choice of language and/or means of receipt of all future Corporate Communications by providing prior written request of not less than seven clear business days to the HK Share Registrar. 

All requests for change can be sent to the HK Share Registrar by post at 17M Floor, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong, or by email to ckh.ecom@computershare.com.hk.  Shareholders who have any queries in relation to election of language or means of receipt of Corporate Communications may call the enquiry hotline of the HK Share Registrar on (852) 2862 8688 during business hours (9:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Hong Kong public holidays).

(4) Future changes

The current arrangements regarding dissemination by the Company of Corporate Communications are expected to be updated in the near future, in view of recent changes to relevant rules to expand the paperless listing regime and reduce the use of printed materials.  Details will be provided to shareholders, and this section will be updated.
