  • According to LSE website: 
    • Issuers with a Premium Listing are required to meet the UK’s super-equivalent rules which are higher than the EU minimum requirements. A Premium Listing means the company is expected to meet the UK’s highest standards of regulation and corporate governance.
    • A Standard Listing allows issuers to access the Main Market by meeting EU harmonised standards only rather than the UK ‘super-equivalent’ requirements.
  • The regulatory approach for primary listings clearly differs from that of secondary listings. According to SGX website - The place of a company’s primary listing will fully impose its listing rules on the company. In contrast, where a company is secondary listed on an exchange, the host exchange will generally rely on the home exchange to regulate the company.
  • One of the key differences is that these companies only required to report financial status every 6 months, instead of following SGX regulatory requirements of quarterly reporting.

  • However, we saw unusual trading activities for Dairy Farm on Friday (15-Sep) where the trading volume of the day is ~25 times more than the average daily trading volume of past 3 months. We noticed increase in trading volume for HongKong Land too. 
  • Share price of Mandarin Oriental surged ~20% on Friday (15-Sep). The group announced receiving bids for The Excelsior, HongKong for the on-going strategic review of the property, only after market closed. (See Mandarin Oriental International Company Announcement dated 15-Sep-2017). SCMP reported that "The 848-room hotel is likely to be valued at between HK$24 billion and HK$34.2 billion (US$4.38 billion)".
    • Note that Mandarin Oriental currently operates 30 hotels and eight residences in 20 countries and territories. The Group’s hotels are all 5-star luxury properties, with the exception of The Excelsior, Hong Kong with 4-star rating. 
    • Market Cap of Mandarin Oriental after the 20% price surge on Friday stands at US$3.22 billion (which is far below the valuation of The Excelsior Hong Kong, i.e. just 1 out of the 30 hotels).
