SET adjusts rule for Book Closing Date or Record Date notification for certain  
securities

BANGKOK, June 24, 2020 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has revised the 
disclosure period of Book Closing Date or Record Date for certain securities as
follows:

1.    Property Fund, Infrastructure Fund, and Investment Trust (REIT / Trust): SET 
has temporarily amended the regulations, effective from June 24 to December 31,
2020, to ease the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic by enabling issuers to respond
to any situation that may arise in a timely manner. The notification of the
Book Closing Date or Record Date for the rights to attend the securities
holders' meeting can be made no less than five business days in advance if the
issuer has resolved to schedule the Book Closing Date or Record Date within
December 31, 2020, and has implemented the ID verification of securities holders
for securities holders' meeting in compliance with the Notice of the Office of
the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

2.    ETFs, Derivative Warrants (DWs), and Depositary Receipt (DR): To notify the 
Book Closing Date or Record Date for any type of rights in advance not less than
five business days to be in accordance with the securities types, effective
from August 3, 2020 onwards.

Such information disclosure amendment remains to be the period of time that 
sufficiently enables investors to be informed to support their decision making.
This amendment has already undergone the hearing process from related parties
and has been approved by the SEC.
