18B.26

A SPAC Promoter who is allotted, issued or granted any Promoter Shares or Promoter Warrants by a SPAC must remain as the beneficial owner of those Promoter Shares or Promoter Warrants at the listing of the SPAC and for the lifetime of the Promoter Shares or Promoter Warrants.
 
Note 1:    The Exchange would consider there to be a change in beneficial owner if a SPAC Promoter enters into any arrangement for another person to be entitled to the economic interest in the Promoter Shares or to have control over the voting rights attached to them (through voting proxies or otherwise).
 
Note 2:    If a SPAC Promoter departs from a SPAC, or where there is a change in beneficial ownership contrary to this rule, the SPAC Promoter must surrender the relevant Promoter Shares and Promoter Warrants it beneficially owns to the SPAC and the SPAC must cancel those Promoter Shares and Promoter Warrants.
 
Note 3:    In exceptional circumstances (e.g. the revocation of the licence of a SPAC Promoter resulting in the departure of the transferor SPAC Promoter), the Exchange may waive this rule, based on the merits of an individual case, to permit the transfer of Promoter Shares or Promoter Warrants between SPAC Promoters of the same SPAC. This is on the condition that the transfer is subject to approval of a resolution on the matter by shareholders at a general meeting. SPAC Promoters and their close associates would be regarded by the Exchange as having a material interest and must abstain from voting on such a resolution.
