Listing of overseas companies in Hong Kong is regulated by The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the “HKEx”) and the Securities and Futures Commission (the “SFC”).  In September 2013, the HKEx and the SFC issued a Joint Policy Statement Regarding Listing of Overseas Companies (the “JPS”).  The JPS’s objective is to assist overseas companies seeking either a primary or secondary listing in Hong Kong.  The JPS sets out requirements for overseas companies to be acceptable for listing on the HKEx, including that an overseas company must come from an “acceptable jurisdiction”.
