The following is for the information of holders of shares in the Company listed on the Main Board of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the Hong Kong Shares).
SHAREHOLDERS COMMUNICATION POLICY
To ensure the effective communications between the Company and its shareholders, we have formulated communication policies with shareholders. We regularly review the implementation of these policies and consider them to be effective. We have established a securities affairs department, dedicated to providing necessary information and services to, and communicate with, shareholders and investors and other participants in the capital market, to maintain an active dialogue with them and make sure they are fully informed of the Company’s operation and development.
Corporate Communication refers to any document issued or to be issued by the Company for the information or action of holders of any of the Company’s securities as defined in Rule 1.01 of the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the “Hong Kong Listing Rules”), including but not limited to: (a) an annual report; (b) an interim report; (c) a notice of meeting; (d) a listing document; (e) a circular; and (f) a proxy form.
In accordance with the Hong Kong Listing Rules, the Companies Ordinance (Chapter 622 of the Laws of Hong Kong) and our Articles of Association, we will supply Corporate Communications to our shareholders electronically by making Corporate Communications available on our website and the HKEXnews website (“Electronic Version”), provided that the relevant shareholders have consented to receiving the Electronic Version.
We will seek consent from our registered shareholders for receiving the Electronic Version of all future Corporate Communications. If we do not receive any response from the registered shareholder indicating his/her objection to receiving the Electronic Version of Corporate Communications within a period of 28 days, he/she will be deemed to have elected the Electronic Version instead of printed copies, and a notice of publication of Corporate Communications will be sent to him/her in the future by email or, if no email address is provided, by post to his/her address as it appears in our register of members.
We will despatch printed copies of Corporate Communications in the registered shareholders’ choice of language to their addresses pursuant to their request, or if consent has not been sought from them for receiving the Electronic Version of Corporate Communications.
If a registered shareholder has elected (or is deemed to have elected) the Electronic Version but for any reason has difficulty in accessing the relevant Corporate Communication(s) electronically or wishes to receive printed copies, we will promptly upon his/her request send the printed copies to him/her free of charge.
A notice of publication of Corporate Communications on our website will also be sent by email or by post to our non-registered holders whose shares (whether or not held through a broker or custodian) are held in the Central Clearing and Settlement System (CCASS) and who has notified us through Hong Kong Securities Clearing Company Limited (HKSCC) that he/she wishes to receive Corporate Communications. Non-registered holders may also request to receive printed copies of Corporate Communications.
REQUEST FOR PRINTED COPIES OR ELECTION OF LANGUAGE AND MEANS OF RECEIPT OF CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS
A registered shareholder/non-registered holder who wishes to receive a Corporate Communication in printed form or in a language version other than his/her existing choice, or wishes to change his/her choice of language or means of receiving all future Corporate Communications, may complete the relevant Request Form and submit it to our Hong Kong share registrar by post to 17M Floor, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong, or by email to ChinaMobile.firstname.lastname@example.org. The relevant Request Forms can be downloaded from our website or the HKEXnews website.
