In some time in the near future, the company hopes to expand beyond Asia. One way of doing so is changing the company’s both Chinese and English names.
Conditions and Effects of the Proposed Rebranding
The recently proposed rebranding plan for Amex International Holdings Limited is subject to several conditions. First of all, the rebranding plan alongside all of its resolutions has to be passed to the company’s shareholders which have to approve the company’s name change at a special meeting. Another condition is that the approval of the company’s name change has to be granted by several subsidiary companies.
Once these two major conditions are checked, the company plans on carrying out all of the necessary, required procedures with the main registry companies located in Hong Kong. When it comes to the effects of the proposed name change, once the proposed resolution becomes active, all of the company’s existing certificated with its current name remain legal evidence to the shares, so they are valid for all sorts of registration, settlement and trading purposes.
Moreover, the resolution will not affect the shareholders’ rights in any way. The company does not plan on arranging any name changing for its already existing share certificates which will bear its new name. Once the resolution becomes active, all of the share certificates will be issued with the new company’s name while the company will also trade on the stock market with its new name.
