1. Major Listing Rule reforms to come into effect 1 December 2019
On 10 October 2019, ASX Limited (“ASX”) released its response to the submissions it received on its 28 November 2018 consultation paper Simplifying, clarifying and enhancing the integrity and efficiency of the ASX listing rules. The consultation paper proposed a broad range of changes to the ASX Listing Rules and related guidance.
Accompanying the consultation response are:
Subject to the receipt of the necessary regulatory approvals, with two exceptions, the final rule changes and all of the revised Listing Rule Appendices and Guidance Notes above will come into effect on 1 December 2019.
The first exception is the changes to Listing Rule 1.1 condition 13 and Listing Rule 12.6 to require the person who has been appointed by an entity to be responsible for communication with ASX in relation to listing rule matters to have completed an approved education course and examination covering listing rule compliance matters. To allow more time to complete the development of ASX’s online education course and examination, ASX has decided to push back the transition date for these particular rule changes to 1 July 2020.
The second exception is the changes to the Appendix 4C and Appendix 5B quarterly cash flow reports, which will come into effect for the quarter beginning 1 January 2020 and ending 31 March 2020.
Listed entities with any questions about the rule and guidance changes should direct them to their ASX listings adviser.
