Webinar: Roundtable Discussion – SGX Disclosure Requirements in a Covid-19 Environment





Event Highlights

With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting almost everyone as well as the global financial markets, companies are grappling with pressures and difficulties in decision-making with the myriad economic uncertainties and disruptions faced by their businesses. For public-listed companies, they need to also be cognizant of the fact that it is even more important now that shareholders are kept up to date with information concerning material changes to their businesses and operations. So when does a development arising from Covid-19 require public disclosure? If such disclosure is warranted, what should companies be disclosing?

As part of our RHTLaw COVID-19 Response Team’s effort to offer solutions and latest update to you, we are organising this exclusive virtual round-table panel discussion session where we invite industry experts to discuss the SGX’s recent posting on, “What SGX expects of issuers’ disclosures during COVID-19”.

We have partnered with RHT Capital, RHT Communications and Investor Relations and Mazars to share with you the latest updates on this area during this unprecedented time of COVID-19. As always, should you require more information or help, please reach out to us or you can check out our COVID-19 resources here.

  • Understand SGX disclosure requirements particularly those relevant to Covid-19; 
  • Learn about what was published in the Regulator’s Column on 22 April;
  • Gain insights on what the industry experts have to say about the latest measures through the discussion.
