The organization, whose minimal effort cell phones have won a faithful after not simply in China but rather in other developing markets like India too, said it would raise an unspecified sum from people in general keeping in mind the end goal to subsidize the advancement of new cell phones and different gadgets like family unit devices.

"There ought not be unequal voting rights as they could permit administration or minority share proprietors to supersede the desires or best advantages of larger part investors for individual advantage and trade off responsibility, prompting potential entrenchment issues," Mary Leung, head of support for Asia at CFA Institute, a relationship of speculation experts, said in an announcement. 

Some enormous institutional financial specialists have condemned Hong Kong's stock trade for tossing out more tightly directions in an offer to contend with rivals. 

Li did not react to a demand for input. Yet, in his blog entry he said that the trade was "acquainting extra shields with ensure financial specialists against the potential abuse of energy," including more corporate administration prerequisites and certain breaking points on establishing investors in these structures.
