On April 22, Shell Holdings Limited (NYSE:BEKE) was added to the Foreign Companies Accountability Act (HFCAA) by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on April 21, 2022, EST.

The determination is an administrative measure taken by the SEC under HFCAA to indicate that the SEC has determined that the Company has used a fiscal 2021 audit report from an auditor that is currently unable to review the audit papers by the U.S. Public Corporations Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).

Under HFCAA rules, the SEC will prohibit the trading of company stock or American depositary receipts on U.S. stock exchanges or over-the-counter markets under HFCAA, and annual audit reports issued by auditors that have not been reviewed by the PCAOB for three consecutive years.

In response, shells looking for a room to respond,The Company has been actively seeking possible solutions to maximize the protection of the interests of shareholders。 The Company will continue to ensure compliance with relevant U.S. and Chinese laws and regulations and, where possible, maintain the Company's status as a public company on the New York Stock Exchange.

When talking about the recent decline in the stock price of Chinese stocks, Fang Xinghai said that there are several factors in the decline of Chinese stocks, one of which involves Sino-US audit and regulatory cooperation.

Recent negotiations between China and the United States have progressed very smoothlyBasically, I negotiated the video every other week and put the details on the ground. Fang Xinghai said, himselfConfident of reaching a cooperation agreement in the near futureIt is more evidence-based for accounting firms that can conduct listing audits of Chinese stocks, which is good news for China stocks.

He said that the CSRC's attitude is to support enterprises to list overseas and support enterprises to choose which market to list on their own, "We believe that China, as a developing country, has not developed its own capital market sufficiently.Enterprises should use the two markets at home and abroad to develop themselves, and this direction will not change。”

According to Interface News, CITIC Securities believes that the introduction of the Foreign Company Accountability Act in the United States has caused market concerns, but the short-term centralized return of China and The United States is not realistic, facing four pressures such as liquidity discount, centralized selling, market preference, and policy risks. It is expected that cross-border audit supervision or Chinese expediency measures will be carried out for enterprises without major information security risks, and enterprises with major information security risks may accelerate their return. Under this scenario, it is estimated that the average annual new fundraising demand of China's return accounts for 16% of the total hong Kong stock IPOs, and the liquidity impact is controllable.However, the return of China is still a long-term trend, and the reform of supporting systems such as Hong Kong Stock Connect and A-share listing thresholds or follow-up policy forces
