Task Description
Your group have been employed by a group of international investors to advise them on Corporate Governance
practices and related issues, as well as how these shape operations, performance and investment prospects at
your case company.
You are expected to base your report both on the company disclosures (for example financial reports,
corporate governance reports, management analysis and commentary and associated announcements/
disclosures in at least the last 3 years) as well as any other relevant information (news reports, analyses,
information about related companies or persons etc.) that you can find.
Your assignment has a focus on corporate governance practices in relation to the ownership structure
(including both major and minority shareholders) at your case company, as well as communication with the
shareholders in provisions E1-E2.1 of the Hong Kong Corporate Governance code. The CG Code provisions as
these apply to main board listings can be found at:
The assignment is composed of two parts. In Part I discuss issues related to compliance with the code. In Part II
directly answer the question prompt.
Part I Assessment of Compliance with Code provisions
In approximately 500 words report on the compliance with formal aspects of the above code provisions
(E1-E2.1) at your case company.
Part II Critical Evaluation
Prompt: Critically evaluate the impact of the ownership structure and the communication with
shareholders on the strategy, operations and performance of the company. In providing this critical
evaluation you should take into consideration relevant class materials/readings and an in-depth
understanding of your case company circumstances through the years.
Your evaluation needs to identify and reflect on any Corporate Governance issues (for example, agency
problems) and (undisclosed) risks that are specific to your company’s context and the assignment
topic. You should also discuss the possible impact of these issues and risks on your case company
operations and performance.
Note that your report needs to include sufficient background information and explanations necessary
for the reader to understand your company context and the basis for your evaluation.
