The amendments to the ASX Listing Rules are expected to take effect on December 1, 2019. These are the main changes that listed companies and those thinking about listing should take into account. Companies wishing to issue limited securities must amend their constitution to impose new restrictions on holders of restricted securities. A listed company cannot issue limited securities without including a provision on how to deal with limited securities in its constitution. A company whose constitution does not yet contain a provision on restricted securities must amend its constitution by adopting a special decision of its shareholders. This process is only available if the issuing body has specific trust provisions in its constitution that meet the requirements of Chapter 15 of the listing rules. Recipients of restriction notifications are subject to these provisions of the trust without the issuer having to obtain the agreement of the guarantee holder on the terms of the trust. ASX indicates that, in most cases, the last set of accounts provided in the rating application must be Tier 1 financial statements, not special financial statements. This is the case, whether the company is part of the winning test or the application of the installation.  Smaller holders of limited securities are subject to trust restrictions, in accordance with the company`s by-law, which are notified to them by a notice of business restriction and which require the non-authorization of a declaration of trust (App 9C).  The constitutional requirements apply to companies listed on December 1, 2019 or after December 1, 2019.
 ASX has revised Guide (“GN”) 1 to indicate, among other things, which companies are eligible to be included on the list and what types of agreements and appointments it will focus on as part of this evaluation. The following changes are some of the most important changes that listed companies (and those thinking about listing) need to understand. ASX added “all reasonable efforts” for its 5-day processing period, either to go back with an objection or to have more time to verify the projects made available to it in accordance with LR 15.1 (for example. B, changes to the company`s bye or securities conditions, notice of meeting for the approval of security holders in accordance with a listing rule, etc.).  As of December 1, 2019, the issuance of 10% shares of key holders of principal holders who have appointed a director to the Board of Directors pursuant to an agreement with the Company is subject to the approval of securityholders in accordance with LR 10.11. ASX is not pursuing the proposal to introduce list rules 5.3.6 and 5.4.6 due to the removal of item 9 from Schedule 5B. These rules would have been applicable to resource researchers and required them to include a return in their quarterly activity report when a Schedule 5B expense category significantly undersubscribed for the current quarter of estimated cash outflows for that quarter, which are listed in Schedule 5B for the previous quarter. The introduction of these new rules would be inconsistent with the removal of item 9 from Schedule 5B.
