Each 'A' share and each 'B' share carries one vote at general meetings of shareholders. Each 'A' share was issued with a nominal value of HK$0.60 and each 'B' share was issued with a nominal value of HK$0.12. Dividends are paid by reference to these nominal values. So, when a dividend is paid, the amount of the dividend paid in respect of each 'A' share is five times the amount of the dividend paid in respect of each 'B' share. When nominal values were abolished on the commencement of the Companies Ordinance (Cap 622 of the Laws of Hong Kong) in 2014, the use of past nominal values for the purpose of determining these dividend entitlements was unaffected.
