Immediate disclosure requirements – dealings in quoted securities
Under the Main LR, paragraph 9.21 mandates a listed issuer to have its own website. Is there a timeframe prescribed by Bursa Securities for the listed issuer to set up its website?
A listed issuer must have its own website by 3 August 2009 when the Main LR takes effect.
Is a listed issuer required to comply with a prescribed minimum content in respect of its website?
No. However, a listed issuer must publish on its website all announcements made to Bursa Securities. Further, the listed issuer must ensure that the website is current, informative and contains all information which may be relevant to the listed issuer’s shareholders including analyst’s briefings.
When is a listed issuer required to publish announcements on its website?
A listed issuer is required to publish announcements made to Bursa Securities on its website as soon as practicable after such announcements are released on Bursa Securities’ website. The listed issuer must not publish any announcements on its website before the same is released by Bursa Securities.
Paragraph 9.21(3) of the Main LR requires a listed issuer to ensure that its website contains the
email address, name(s) of designated person(s) and their contact numbers to enable the public to forward queries to the listed issuer. What are the queries envisaged by this requirement and must the listed issuer answer all queries?
This requirement is imposed to enable a listed issuer to improve the investor relations with its stakeholders, especially the shareholders. Hence, a shareholder may forward any query to its listed issuer. The listed issuer should use its best endeavours to respond to the queries.
Paragraph 9.21(2) of the Main LR requires every listed issuer to publish on its website all announcements
made to the Exchange pursuant to the Main LR
. How long must a listed issuer maintain such announcements on its website?
The Main LR does not prescribe the duration for such announcements to be maintained on a listed issuer's website. The listed issuer may exercise its discretion on how long it will maintain its announcements on its website. In any event, a listed issuer should ensure that its website is current, informative and contain all information which may be relevant to its shareholders, as provided under paragraph 9.21(4) of the Main LR.
Can a listed issuer provide a link in its website that enables its announcements that are posted on Bursa Securities’ website to be similarly made available on its website?
Yes, a listed issuer may do so only if it procures Bursa Malaysia's approval and enters into an agreement with Bursa Malaysia. This is to avoid any issue of copyright infringement by such listed issuer. Further, the listed issuer must ensure that the link will enable announcements to be viewed seamlessly as part of the listed issuer's web pages. The listed issuer may contact Bursa Malaysia's Information Services Division for further details on such arrangements.
Can a group of companies share one website?
Yes, provided that each listed issuer within the group has its own distinctive and designated webpages and shareholders are able to retrieve the information on each of their listed issuers easily. In short, the listed issuers within the group must each ensure compliance of its webpages within the shared website with paragraph 9.21 of the Main LR.
