The CG Guide seeks to cultivate actualisation of sound corporate governance practices among listed issuers. This is vital in light of higher expectations for strong corporate governance globally.&rdquo;</p> <p>The CG Guide was formulated and finalised following engagements with various key stakeholders. It sets out, amongst others, the Comprehend, Apply and Report (CARE) approach introduced in the MCCG and gives practical guidance and recommendations for listed issuers to apply when adopting the principles and practices in the MCCG. Through the comprehensive CG Guide, listed issuers can gain insights from case studies and illustrations, to have a better appreciation of the value propositions offered by embodying CG practices.</p> <p>Listed issuers and their Boards are strongly encouraged to refer to the CG Guide when preparing their CG Overview Statement in the annual reports, as well as the CG Report per the Listing Requirements.</p> For more information on the CG Guide, please visit Bursa Malaysia&rsquo;s website at <a href="http://www.bursamalaysia.com/market/regulation/rules/communication-notes-guides/">http://www.bursamalaysia.com/market/regulation/rules/communication-notes-guides/</a> tag:www.bursamalaysia.com,2005:MediaRelease/5433 2017-12-13T13:03:45+08:00 2017-12-13T13:02:38+08:00 BURSA MALAYSIA LAUNCHES ISLAMIC SECURITIES SELLING AND BUYING NEGOTIATED TRANSACTION FRAMEWORK <p><r:assets:image id="22997" size="original" /></p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: center;">From Left to Right: Shamsul Akmal Ahmad, Director, Islamic Capital Market, Bursa Malaysia (Interim); Selvany Rasiah, Chief Commercial Officer, Bursa Malaysia; Datuk Seri Tajuddin Atan, CEO, Bursa Malaysia; Professor Dr. Ashraf Md Hashim, Chairman, Shariah Committee of Bursa Malaysia; Professor Dr Younes Soualhi, Member, Shariah Committee of Bursa Malaysia; and Dr Shamsiah Mohamad, Member, Shariah Committee of Bursa Malaysia</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Kuala Lumpur, 13 December 2017 </strong>&ndash; Bursa Malaysia Berhad (&ldquo;Bursa Malaysia&rdquo; or &ldquo;the Exchange&rdquo;) yesterday launched the Islamic Securities Selling and Buying Negotiated Transaction (ISSBNT) framework. ISSBNT is the world&rsquo;s first Shariah-compliant alternative to Securities Borrowing and Lending (&ldquo;SBL&rdquo;) and was developed to provide a new mechanism for institutional Islamic capital market participants to trade with more flexibility, while still adhering to principles of Islamic finance.</p> <p>Bursa Malaysia Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Seri Tajuddin Atan said, &ldquo;Today&rsquo;s innovative launch is yet another step in our journey towards ensuring that Malaysia remains as the world&rsquo;s leading, fully integrated Islamic investing marketplace offering a complete set of Islamic financial market instruments and trading alternatives.&rdquo;</p> <p>Locally, the conventional SBL market has seen a growth from RM0.4 billion in October 2012 to RM4.7 billion in October 2017. ISSBNT was developed to cater for the need to have a Shariah-compliant version of SBL, especially when considering the massive size of Islamic Asset Under Management in Malaysia, which stood at RM161 billion as at September 2017.</p> <p>The ISSBNT framework was designed based on the Securities Borrowing and Lending Negotiated Transaction (SBLNT) framework and is expected to:</p> <ul> <li>facilitate hedging and risk management activities of Islamic fund and wealth managers; and</li> <li>advance the development of the Islamic Exchange Traded Funds (iETFs) through the spurring of liquidity.</li> </ul> <p>&ldquo;The nation&rsquo;s Islamic finance framework and developments have placed Malaysia in a global leadership position.&nbsp; Introducing platforms and services that are global &lsquo;firsts&rsquo; or novel in the Islamic capital market sphere is something that is not new to Bursa Malaysia. This new offering reinforces our unique position to provide ample conventional and Islamic products and services in the marketplace. Bursa Malaysia will continue to make progress towards being the center or artery of Shariah investments by domestic and international investors.&rdquo; Datuk Seri Tajuddin added.</p> <p>As an integrated exchange, Bursa Malaysia offers a good breadth of quality stocks. Out of 902 companies listed on the Exchange, 76% or 686 companies are Shariah-compliant. The Shariah market capitalisation as at end November 2017, makes up 61.1% of the total market capitalisation of RM1.84 trillion. The Exchange offers investors a wide choice of Shariah investments products such as i-ETFs, i-REITs and Exchange Traded Bonds and Sukuk (ETBS).</p> <p>ISSBNT activities will be facilitated through the Trading Clearing Participants and Non-Trading Clearing Participants of Bursa Malaysia Securities Clearing Sdn.

Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (&ldquo;Bursa Malaysia&rdquo;) today announced various enhancements to the Main Market and ACE Market Listing Requirements (collectively &ldquo;Listing Requirements&rdquo;) aimed at promoting greater business efficacy, while improving corporate governance practices and disclosures. The amendments are pursuant to the implementation of the Companies Act 2016 (CA 2016) and the launch of the Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance (MCCG) this year.</p> <p>Bursa Malaysia also enhanced post listing obligations for mineral, oil and gas (MOG) listed issuers and special purpose acquisition companies (SPAC). These new requirements seek to enhance the quality of disclosures and promote greater transparency of their activities, in order to better safeguard investors&rsquo; interests.</p> <p>Key highlights of the various amendments to the Listing Requirements are as follows:</p> <p>i. Amendments arising from implementation of CA 2016 that include:</p> <ul> <li>providing more flexibility in the bonus issue framework by allowing bonus issue to be undertaken with or without increasing the issued share capital, subject to a pricing condition<sub>. </sub>Listed issuers can submit a straightforward bonus issue application to Bursa Malaysia without engaging a Principal Adviser;</li> <li>enhancing and simplifying the share buy-back framework by expanding the usage of treasury shares with appropriate safeguards;</li> <li>promoting efficient securities holders&rsquo; engagement by allowing electronic means of communication; and</li> <li>simplifying the prescribed contents of a listed issuer&rsquo;s constitution.</li> </ul> <p>ii. Amendments relating to corporate governance (CG) requirements that include:</p> <ul> <li>improving the quality of CG disclosures through the CG Overview Statement and CG Report;</li> <li>promoting transparency over directors&rsquo; remuneration by requiring disclosure on a named basis; and</li> <li>enhancing the Audit Committee&rsquo;s oversight over the internal audit function.</li> </ul> <p>iii. Amendments to the post-listing obligations of MOG listed issuers and SPACs that include:</p> <ul> <li>promoting transparency through immediate announcements of specific material information of MOG listed issuers and enhancements to periodic reports of both MOG listed issuers and SPACs; and</li> <li>strengthening the governance framework by requiring listed issuers with substantial MOG activities and SPACs intending to acquire MOG assets as part of their qualifying acquisition to have at least one independent director and appoint an external auditor with relevant MOG exploration or extraction experience or expertise.</li> </ul> <p>The amendments to the Listing Requirements is a testimony to Bursa Malaysia&rsquo;s commitment to promote a balanced and proportionate rule framework, having considered all the key stakeholders&rsquo; needs and inputs.&nbsp; This fits in well with Bursa Malaysia&rsquo;s continuous efforts to position itself as a conducive listing and capital raising destination.</p> <p>Most of the amendments will be effective from 2 January 2018 onwards with some enhancements such as the corporate governance requirements coming into effect on 31 December 2017. In certain areas, listed issuers are accorded with a longer grace period to comply with the amended Listing Requirements.</p> Further details of the various effective dates and the amended Listing Requirements are available at Bursa Malaysia&rsquo;s website at:&nbsp; <a href="http://www.bursamalaysia.com/market/regulation/rules/listing-requirements/main-market/listing-requirements">http://www.bursamalaysia.com/market/regulation/rules/listing-requirements/main-market/listing-requirements</a>.
