Hong Kong SFC Found Serious Deficiencies in IPO Sponsors Work
Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) have uncovered serious deficiencies and instances of non-compliance in the sponsors’ work done for initial public offering (IPO) transactions. A review of work was done from 2013 to 2017 on 31 licensed corporations (LC), with some sponsors failing to take reasonable steps to follow up on their due diligence despite obvious red flags, indicating poor professional judgement and a lack of professional scepticism.
” Hong Kong SFC found serious deficiencies in IPO sponsors Work “
SFC highlighted some sponsors had failed to maintain effective Chinese walls to prevent the flow of confidential information between the sponsors and related LCs. In some cases, information (not publicly available) relating to the listing applications was passed from the transaction teams to staff from related LCs, before approvals were obtained.
Since 2013, 44 listing applications were returned or rejected. SFC will be conducting more frequent inspections and supervisory actions on sponsors with a of history of returned or rejected listing applications. Between 2009 and 2016, Hong Kong is the world’s largest IPO market (funds’ raised) in 5 of the 8 years. In 2016 alone, HK$195.3 billion ($24.88 billion ; XR: 7.85) was raised.
