To satisfy their claims, the creditors are entitled to the debtor’s insolvency estate. The insolvency estate consists of the entire assets of the debtor which belong to him at the time the insolvency proceeding is opened and which he obtains during the proceeding.

Under the Hong Kong Codes on Takeovers and Mergers and Share Buy-backs (Takeovers Code), once an announcement is made of a proposed or possible offer (with or without terms), any public statement containing data sufficient to calculate an approximate figure for future profits of the listed issuer concerned may be treated as a ‘profit forecast’, which must be ‘reported on’. It includes not only any profit forecast made during an offer period but also any existing profit forecast. An obvious but easily overlooked example is the profit warning or positive profit alert announcement (Profit Announcement) published by the listed issuer before or during the offer.

As a reminder to listed issuers, this article reviews the requirements of Rule 10 of the Takeovers Code (Rule 10) in the context of Profit Announcement.
