The Securities Commission (SC) had on 1 January 2021 introduced the enhanced initial public offering (IPO) framework to promote greater shared responsibility among key stakeholders involved in the IPO application process for listing on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia. Applicants and advisers are expected to adopt certain standards of disclosure in IPO applications by disclosing material information and to ensure accuracy and completeness of such information for investors to make informed investment decisions. Hence, relevant due diligence must be properly conducted before submissions are made to the SC. It is crucial for advisers to understand the SC’s expectations on IPO applications and obligations of all parties in submitting information to the SC that is true, not misleading and with no material omission.

This programme will provide an overview of the relevant requirements for listing of companies on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia and the underlying principles of the five (5) IPO focus areas including the minimum requirements for listing, corporate governance, related party transactions & conflicts of interest, public interest as well as interest of investors. Meaningful disclosures in a prospectus will also be discussed such as standards of disclosures, the liable persons for such disclosures and when disclosures are able to cure listing suitability issues. In addition, regulatory requirements on due diligence, material development, appointment of other advisers/experts and reliance on work of such advisers will be examined together with the frequently missed issues by advisers.
