就重组及控股结构提出建议

易周律师行定期就准备在联交所上市的集团重组,包括分拆,分立和破产提供意见。首次公开募股前重组给予申请人按照意愿对集团整体进行重组的机会。矿业公司上市申请人不妨考虑以下几点:

  • 对任何冗余的公司进行清盘,如用以开发资产的项目公司或合营公司,不会构成部分上市的一部份;
  • 调动公司在集团内部的位置以确保他们处于正确的资产集团及报告线。
  • 分拆大的附属公司为多个部门并且将各个部门归属独立的附属公司;
  • 规避任何投机或高风险,或到独立附属公司中进行非常早期阶段的勘探项目;
  • 提高税收效率;及
  • 排除运营业务与集团主要业务不相关的附属公司

重组的矿业公司须知晓,根据《上市规则》,如果与勘探及/或开采天然资源有关的资产、总收入或营运开支低于其总资产、总收入或营运开支25%,它将不再被定义为「矿业公司」。

矿业公司也应该有考虑到潜在的竞争问题,竞争业务将被排除在集团外,以及重组后关连人士持有集团业务一部分的潜在关连交易。例如,根据各方之间的关系,基础设施协议、设计采购施工协议、承让协议、非竞争协议可引起关连交易或持续关连交易。

可接受的司法管辖区

《主板上市协议》第19章及《创业板上市协议》 第24章规定了适用于所有寻求在联交所上市的海外公司的总体框架。

除中国、百慕达及开曼群岛,上市委员会已正式裁定,发行人的注册成立地点为澳大利亚、巴西、英属维尔京群岛、加拿大(阿尔伯塔、不列颠哥伦比亚省和安大略省)、塞浦路斯、法国、德国、格恩西、马恩岛、意大利、日本、泽西岛、韩国、纳闽、卢森堡、新加坡、英国和美国(加利福尼亚州和特拉华州)是可接受的司法管辖区。

不是在任何可接受的司法管辖区内注册成立的矿业公司将在个案基础上进行评估,须证明该等公司受限于适当的股东保护标准,为股东提供的保障应至少相当于香港的法律规定。
