  • Going public no doubt symbolizes the capability and profitability that the company has achieved. However along with the additional funding, the company would be exposed to the ever-changing and stringent compliance requirements, whether it is the Securities and Futures Ordinance, the Listing Rules, the Laws of Hong Kong or the respective jurisdictions, or the Codes on Takeovers and Mergers and Share Repurchases.
