Where stock certificates are lost, the procedures for applying to issue replacement stock certificates shall be conducted as follows:
When processing matters in accordance with subparagraph 1 of the preceding paragraph, and the lost stock certificates have been registered in the dedicated account of the centralized securities depository enterprise, the applicant shall attach documents showing that such stock certificates have been withdrawn from the centralized securities depository enterprise.
- The shareholder or legal owner shall report the event to the police authority for handling or recordation, complete an application for reporting loss of stock certificates, and send such to the company for examination and registration; where the transfer procedure has not been completed, the applicant shall also attach a proof document provided by the securities firm or the transferor.
- The applicant shall, within five days, apply to the court for a public summons under the Code of Civil Procedure, and send to the company a photocopy of the application affixed with the court's stamp indicating its receipt of the application; where such procedure is not commenced upon the expiration of the time period, the company may cancel the application for reporting loss of stock certificates.
- Upon issuance of a public summons ruling by the court, the applicant shall make a public notice in a manner required in the court ruling, and upon the expiration of the period of public summons, the applicant shall apply to the company for issuance of replacement stock certificates by attaching the court's judgment of abridgment of rights.
- To cancel the report of loss of stock certificates, the applicant shall complete an application for cancellation of a report of loss of stock certificates and send it to the company for examination and registration; where the applicant has already applied to the court for a public summons or for a judgment of abridgment of rights pursuant to the Code of Civil Procedure, the applicant shall also submit a photocopy of the application to the court for cancellation of the public summons or for revocation of the judgment of abridgment of rights, affixed with the court's stamp indicating its receipt of the application.
While the stock certificates are still in the process of public summons procedures, the dividends (capital interest), bonuses, distributed stock dividends and other ancillary rights accumulated during the period shall be held and not distributed by the company until the court's judgment of abridgment of rights has been issued.
When appointing a third person to apply for issuance of stock certificates in replacement of lost ones under paragraph 1, a natural-person shareholder shall provide a power of attorney, and a juristic-person shareholder shall provide an application letter, and the power of attorney or application letter shall be signed or chopped with the original specimen chop.
After the company completes the registration for the reported lost stock certificates, if the lost stock certificates are discovered, a notation stating "Registered Lost Stock Certificates" shall be affixed on the stock certificates and on the transfer application.
