 Upon the merger between a listed company and an unlisted or non-OTC company, the surviving company shall remain a listed company. Except in the case of a securities, financial, or insurance company with special approval from the authority in charge of the industry concerned, or where a listed company merges into itself its 100 percent owned subsidiary, the following conditions shall be met:
 1. The financial data of the unlisted company or non-OTC company that was merged and the consolidated financial data of the two merged companies satisfy the profitability requirements of listed companies enumerated in Article 4 of the Criteria for Review of Securities Listings; provided, the said provision shall not apply where the net worth per share of the surviving company, both in the most recent financial year and on the most recent pro-forma financial report, is higher than the net worth per share of the original listed company. Where the above proviso is satisfied, if the listed company or the merged unlisted (non-OTC) company, from the date next following the date of the balance sheet in the most recent financial report to the date the application is filed with this Corporation, undergoes any material change in capital affecting the net worth per share, such as a capital increase or reduction or distribution of dividends, the net worth per share of the surviving company shall be higher than the net
worth per share of the original listed company, and the attesting CPA shall submit a review opinion following the imputed adjustment.
 2. The unlisted company or non-OTC company being merged does not satisfy the circumstances specified in Subparagraphs 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, and 14 of Paragraph 1 of Article 9 of the Criteria for Review of Securities Listings.

 Where a listed company undertakes a merger pursuant to Paragraph 2, any directors, supervisors, and shareholders holding more than 10 percent of the issued shares of the company being merged shall place in centralized custody in compliance with all the below-listed provisions any additional common shares (including those publicly offered and issued or privately placed) or overseas depositary receipts issued due to the merger that they hold, with the exception that a listed company that merges into itself a subordinate company in which it holds 50 percent or more of the issued shares may be exempted from the provisions regarding the ratio of total shares that shall be placed in centralized custody; provided, this requirement may be waived where a listed company merges with a subordinate company of which it holds 90 percent or more of the outstanding shares in accordance with Article 316-2 of the Company Act:
1. Such persons obtaining common shares publicly offered and issued due to the merger shall place all such shares into centralized custody. The provisions of Paragraph 2 of Article 10 of the Criteria for Review of Securities Listings shall apply mutatis mutandis to the calculation of the ratio of new share issued as a result of the merger that should be placed in centralized custody. In case of shortage, negotiation shall be made with other shareholders holding common shares publicly offered and issued due to the merger to make up the shortfall. Of the share certificates placed in central custody, one-fifth of the portion comprising 50 percent thereof may be withdrawn after the lapse of two full years from the listing date thereof; thereafter, a further one-fifth of such portion may be withdrawn once every six months. The remaining 50 percent may be withdrawn in full after the lapse of six full months from the listing date thereof. However, these provisions may be waived where, pursuant to Article 316-2
of the Company Act, a listed company merges with a subordinate company of which it holds 90 percent or more of the issued shares.
2. Such persons obtaining privately placed common shares due to the merger shall issue a written undertaking not to transfer the shares within a certain period. The written undertaking shall furthermore state: “The Taiwan Stock Exchange Corporation may from time to time send personnel to carry out spot checks to ascertain whether I have faithfully abided by my undertaking not to transfer the common shares I have obtained through private placement due to the merger. After expiration of the period in which I have undertaken restricted transfer, for those shares I obtained due to the merger that are still classified as privately placed common shares, I shall continue to abide by the restrictions on transfer under Article 43-8 of the Securities and Exchange Act.” If public issuance procedures for the shares are subsequently duly carried out during the restricted transfer period, the shareholder shall place its shareholding in centralized custody and withdraw it in periodic installments in accordance with
regulations. The total ratio of privately placed common shares subject to restriction of transfer and the period of the restriction shall accord with the provisions of the preceding subparagraph.
3. Such persons obtaining overseas depositary receipts issued for capital increase due to merger shall provide a written undertaking that for a certain period of time they shall not redeem or transfer the overseas depositary receipts held by them, and shall incorporate provisions restricting redemption into the contract signed and entered into with the custodian institution. The total ratio of global depositary receipts subject to restriction of redemption or transfer and the period of the restriction shall accord with the provisions of the preceding subparagraph.
 Where the merger between a listed company and other companies does not conform with the preceding four Paragraphs, or where a new company is created as a result of the merger, the original listed company shall apply for the termination of listing. The surviving company or the new company may apply for listing of stocks after completion of the merger.
Where a listed company, pursuant to the Business Mergers and Acquisitions Act, Company Act, or other laws or regulations, acquires shares, business, or assets of an unlisted/non-OTC company, with shares, cash, or other assets as the consideration, or acquires from a shareholder of an unlisted/non-OTC company his/her shares therein, or acquires in full or in part the business of an unlisted/non-OTC company through assignment by split, if such transaction reaches any of the following standards, such unlisted/non-OTC company shall additionally comply with all of the conditions set out in paragraph 2, and any director, supervisor, or shareholder holding 10 percent or more of the shares thereof who has holdings of the new common shares (including those publicly offered and issued or privately placed) or overseas depositary receipts issued by the listed company for such capital increase shall also deposit the share certificates into central custody in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 4:

2. If the total number of shares acquired from shareholders of the unlisted/non-OTC company reaches 70 percent or more of its issued shares.

Article 58-3
 The competitive auction for trading orders shall without exception be conducted by call auction. Trade prices shall be determined based on the following principles:
 1. Satisfying the maximum trade volume such that buy orders with prices higher than the determined price and sell orders with prices lower than the determined price shall be all satisfied.
 2. Where there are buy and sell orders with prices equal to the determined price, at least one side shall be all satisfied.
 3. Where two or more prices conform to the principles set forth in the preceding two subparagraphs, the price closest to the most recent traded price in the current session shall be used. If there is not yet any traded price in the current session, the price closest to the auction reference price at market opening of the current session. The closing price of the preceding day is taken as the "auction reference price at market opening of the current session." If there is no closing price for the preceding day, the closing price of the most recent day shall be used; except, if there is no closing price for the preceding day and, for two continuous days, the highest buy order or lowest sell order price has reached the ceiling price or floor price as provided in Article 63, paragraph 2, then such ceiling price or floor price shall be used. If it is an initial listing or the initial day of ex-right or ex-dividend trading, the reference price as set forth in Article 59 or Article 67 shall be used.
 The opening price of a security is the price of the first matched trade for the current session. Trading orders entered prior to market opening (i.e. the commencement of trading hours) that are unexecuted shall continue to be matched in the order as originally randomly assigned by the computer. The closing price shall be the price of trades matched upon accumulation of all trading orders over a period of time prior to market closing (i.e. the close of trading hours). Where unexecuted, the closing price shall be the last traded price during the current session.
 During the period from the first matched trade of a security during the current session until the period of time prior to market closing, if the execution price as test-calculated prior to each matching fluctuates beyond a certain range from the previous traded price, this Corporation shall immediately postpone matching of that security for a certain period of time, and continue to accept entries, cancellations, and changes of trading orders for that security. Matching will then proceed sequentially at the conclusion of the postponement period. However, this restriction shall not apply to securities for which extended matching intervals have been implemented under rules or regulations of this Corporation, or to securities for which the opening auction reference price is lower than a certain price.
 The "period of time," "certain range," and "certain price" in the preceding two paragraphs shall be prescribed by this Corporation and publicly announced for implementation after approval and recordation by the Competent Authority.
 In case of continuous auction, the determination of the execution price shall be based on the following principles:
 1. Where there are announced buy and sell orders, the price satisfying the maximum volume of trades within the scope of the announced ranges.
 2. Where only the buy price is announced, the price satisfying the maximum volume of trades within the range two fluctuation basis points higher than the announced buy price; where only the sell price is announced, the price satisfying the maximum volume of trades within the range two fluctuation basis points lower than the announced sell price.
 3. Where the buy and sell prices are not announced, the price satisfying the maximum volume of trades within the range two fluctuation basis points higher or lower than the most recent execution price.
 4. Where there are two or more prices that conform to the principles set forth in the preceding three Subparagraphs, the price that shall be used shall be the most recent execution price or the most recent announced price.
 Trading orders that were not satisfied via the opening price produced using the call auction process shall remain effective, and shall be randomly assigned a priority by the computer to continue in the continuous auction process. Where the opening price cannot be produced using the call auction process, an opening price produced using the continuous auction process may be used.

 3. Where the buy and sell prices are not announced, the price satisfying the maximum volume of trades within the range two fluctuation basis points higher or lower than the most recent execution price.
 4. Where there are two or more prices that conform to the principles set forth in the preceding three Subparagraphs, the price that shall be used shall be the most recent execution price or the most recent announced price.
