Available starting 5 September 2011, the additional website will be supported by technology infrastructure separate from those of the HKExnews website and Bulletin Board.
HKEx said information about listed companies’ announcements and notices is available on the HKExnews website and the bulletin boards. The full text of each announcement and notice is available on the HKExnews website and the company’s website. HKEx noted that a list of hyperlinks to all listed companies’ websites is available on the bulletin boards and the HKExnews website.
If services of the said websites are disrupted but there is timely publication of the company’s results announcement on the company’s website following the board meeting, trading in the company’s securities will continue because investors will have had advance notice of the results announcement through the company’s board meeting notification.
However, if companies make unscheduled announcements of price sensitive information when services of the HKExnews website, the Bulletin Board and the additional bulletin board are disrupted, a suspension will be required because there would have been no advance notice of the announcements.
