Continuing disclosure requirements (17.22-17.24)
Where the circumstances giving rise to a disclosure obligation under rule 17.15 continue to exist at the issuer's half yearly or quarterly period end or annual financial year end, the information specified under rule 17.17, as at such period end or year end, shall be included in the half-year, quarterly or annual report as applicable.
Where an obligation arises under rules 17.19, 17.20, 17.21 or 17.43, the disclosures required by these rules should be included in subsequent half-year, quarterly and annual reports for so long as the circumstances giving rise to the obligation continue to exist.
Note: Please refer to rule 17.43 for further details on the continuing disclosure requirements in respect of securities pledged or charged by controlling shareholders.
Where the circumstances giving rise to a disclosure under rule 17.18 continue to exist at the issuer's half yearly or quarterly period end or annual financial year end, its half-year, quarterly or annual report must include a combined balance sheet of affiliated companies as at the latest practicable date. The combined balance sheet of affiliated companies should include significant balance sheet classifications and state the issuer's effective economic interest in the affiliated companies. If it is not practicable to prepare the combined balance sheet of affiliated companies, the Exchange, on the issuer's application, may consider accepting, as an alternative, a statement of the indebtedness, contingent liabilities and capital commitments as at the end of the period reported on by affiliated companies.
