Hong Kong may lower 1,000 shareholder requirement

In Hong Kong, listing Rule 8.05(3)(f) currently requires an applicant that lists using the market capitalization / revenue test to haveĀ at leastĀ 1,000 shareholders. This listing requirement is more onerous than both the profit and the market capitalization / revenue / cash flow tests, and effectively prevents applicants with a large market capitalization and revenues from listing if they cannot secure sufficient retail investor interest.
