Review international investment agreement for implementation in Hong Kong
To adapt the term sheet and shareholders agreement entered by an SFC regulated company with a UK based investor for 5MUSD+ investment to ensure their effectiveness in Hong Kong. Changes had to be strictly necessary to avoid re-negotiations.
How we helped
First we coordinated with the compliance officer of the Hong Kong company to evaluate the SFC requirements. Then we proposed minimum amendments to the term sheet and shareholders agreement to adapt them without re-initiating negotiations between the parties. Finally we involved our associate company secretary to prepare the required board and members resolutions at short notice.
The amendments proposed were approved further to a conference call with all parties and the investment could materialise as intended by the parties after the required SFC approbation was granted.
