At least one month prior to filing the application for listing eligibility review, the foreign applicant is required to conduct prior consultation with KRX. This procedure is deemed necessary as much as the institutional and legal system of the foreign jurisdiction is different from those of the Republic of Korea. Accordingly, KRX might need time to consider those differences, inter alia, the Articles of Incorporation of the applicant and the relevant laws of the foreign jurisdiction. At the prior consultation, the foreign applicant should submit its Articles of Incorporation prescribing a set of mandatory items required by KRX, a legal opinion and an auditor’s report. Also, the foreign applicant should discuss with the lead manager and legal advisor to take proper measures for the inclusion of the mandatory items required by KRX into the Articles of Incorporation for investor protection.
