Search Guide for Listed Company Information

 

The "Listed Company Information Advanced Search" provided on the HKEXnews Website and the "Information on Listed Companies" provided on the GEM Website allow users to search for listed company documents by using single or multiple parameters. The more parameters you select, the more refined the results will be.  Below is the screen layout of "Listed Company Information Advanced Search" and "Information on Listed Companies":

Useful Tips for Your Search

 

1.       If you do not specify Stock Code/Stock Name and Headline Category/Document Type, the search period shall not be more than one month.  If you specify Headline Category/Document Type but not the Stock Code/Stock Name, the search period shall not be more than twelve months.  However, if Stock Code/Stock Name is specified, the search period will be set to 1 April 1999 up to today by default.

2.       If you do not know a listed companyˇs full name or stock code, you may click on "List of Stock Codes" (sorted by stock code) or "List of Stock Names" (sorted by alphabetical order) next to the input boxes. You can then click on the stock code or stock name.

3.       To facilitate your search of the Headline Category, there is a built-in three-level search.  The highest level has 16 first-tier headline categories.  You can then narrow down your search by selecting a group heading of second-tier Headline Category in the next level.  If you do not know the structure of the headline categories, you can click the Help button for a list of categories at the lowest level in alphabetical order.
