Its annual consolidated financial reports shall be CPA audited and attested, and may not be publicly announced and filed more than six months after the close of fiscal year, except when the competent authority of its country of registration or country of listing has approved an extension of the deadline for public announcement and filing.

Article 4
Any issuer, other than an exchange (or OTC) secondary listed company, may apply with the competent authority to extend the deadline for public announcement and filing of financial reports for the relevant period if the public announcement or filing cannot be carried out by the deadline due to any of the following circumstances:

The deadline may be extended for no more than one month, but may be extended again when necessary.

Article 4-1
When, in the event of an extended holiday or other circumstance, there is a likelihood that issuers may be unable to carry out the public announcement and filing of their monthly operating reports by the deadline, the competent authority may publicly announce an extension to the deadline for public announcement and filing.
