MAS IMPOSES COMPOSITION AMOUNT OF $2,500 ON MS LU DI FOR FAILING TO NOTIFY THE SINGAPORE EXCHANGE SECURITIES TRADING LIMITED ["SGX-ST"] OF CHANGES IN SUBSTANTIAL SHAREHOLDINGS WITHIN STIPULATED TIMEFRAME

                 


1       On 14 July 2011, Ms Lu Di ["Ms Lu"] paid a composition amount of $2,500 for contravening section 137 of the Securities and Futures Act ["SFA"] which requires substantial shareholders of listed companies to notify the securities exchange of changes in their shareholdings.

2       Ms Lu was late in notifying SGX-ST of the change in her deemed shareholding in Asia Power Corporation Ltd ["Asia Power"] which took place on 29 May 2010.  Ms Lu was also late in notifying Asia Power of the above-mentioned change.  As a result, Asia Power was unable to disseminate the information to the market as required under Rule 704(3) of the SGX Listing Manual.


Substantial shareholders are required to notify the securities exchange of changes in their shareholdings in a timely manner. This is necessary for the proper functioning of a fair, efficient and transparent market.
