The Exchange may waive or modify compliance with a Rule (or part of a Rule) either generally or to suit the circumstances of a particular case, unless the Rule specifies that the Exchange will not waive it. The Exchange may grant a waiver subject to such conditions, as it considers appropriate. If the Exchange waives a Rule (or part of a Rule) subject to a condition, the condition must be satisfied for the waiver to be effective. Where a waiver is granted, the issuer must announce the waiver, the reasons for seeking the waiver and the conditions, if any, upon which the waiver is granted as soon as practicable. Applications for waivers should be submitted through the issuer's sponsor.
