Insider Trading

A. Legal Prohibitions and Penalties

Malaysia securities laws and the laws of most jurisdictions worldwide generally prohibit "insider trading" or the purchase or sale, or the recommendation of a purchase or sale, of any stock, bond, option or other security by a person while he or she is in possession of "material nonpublic information" (sometimes also referred to as "inside information") about the security or its issuer. The use of such material nonpublic information to avoid losses is no less a violation than the use of such information to generate profits.

Regulators have treated the detection and prosecution of insider trading violations as an enforcement priority, and violations have also been the subject of private legal actions. Malaysia federal and state securities laws provide for criminal and civil penalties for violations of the insider trading laws. Sanctions or penalties include jail sentences, civil injunctions, fines for the person who committed the violation of up to three times the profit gained or loss avoided as a result of the unlawful trades, whether or not the person fined actually traded, and fines for the person's employer or other controlling person.

A person can be subject to some or all of these penalties as a "tipper" if he or she discloses material nonpublic information to another person who then trades while in possession of such information. A person can incur "tipper-tippee" liability if his or her disclosure of information breaches a duty owed to the issuer or the source of the information. A tipper can be liable even if he or she does not personally receive a direct monetary benefit from the ensuing trading activity.

It is also important to understand that the prohibitions on disclosing or misusing information do not apply only to "insiders" such as officers, directors, employees and significant shareholders of an issuer. The prohibitions can also apply to "outsiders" such as consultants, accountants, lawyers and underwriters who have a duty of trust or confidence to the source of the material nonpublic information. In addition, the prohibitions can also apply to persons with a family relationship to the source of the information, and to persons with any other relationship of trust or confidence with the source (such as when people have a history, pattern or practice of sharing confidences).

You are prohibited from disclosing any nonpublic information in breach of any duty of trust or confidence to the source or subject matter of the information.

B. Material Information

Information is "material" if there is a substantial likelihood that a reasonable investor would consider it important in deciding whether to purchase, sell or hold a security or other financial instrument. It is also information that, if disclosed, is reasonably likely to affect the market price of the security or instrument. Information may be material even if it relates to speculative or contingent events. Information that is material with respect to a security is also likely to be material with respect to options and other related derivatives.

Information that is material usually includes, but is not limited to: dividend changes, earnings estimates, changes in previously released earnings estimates, significant merger or acquisition discussions or agreements, major litigation or regulatory investigations, regulatory approvals or disapprovals, and extraordinary management developments.

Because the determination of whether information is "material" involves questions of judgment (that may be second-guessed by a regulator who has the benefit of hindsight), you should refrain from disclosing nonpublic information if you have any questions about whether the information might potentially be considered material.

C. Nonpublic Information

Information is nonpublic until it has been effectively communicated to the market place or made widely available to the general public such as by means of a press release carried over a major news services, a public filing made with a regulatory agency, or material sent to security holders or potential investors (such as a proxy statement or prospectus).

It is sometimes difficult to know whether information has been made public. The fact that nonpublic information is reflected in rumors in the marketplace does not mean that the information has been publicly disseminated. Even when some information regarding a matter has been made public, other aspects of the matter may remain nonpublic.

No Assignment

Mentor shall not assign his or her rights and obligations according to this Agreement, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, without the prior, written consent of Futurelab. Any purported assignment by Mentor without the appropriate prior written approval will be null and void and of no force or effect.

Modifications to this Agreement

Futurelab may change this Agreement without prior notice by posting modifications on the Site. Unless otherwise specified by Futurelab, all modifications shall be effective upon posting. Therefore, Mentor is encouraged to check the terms of this Agreement frequently. By using the service or Site after the changes become effective, Mentor agrees to be bound by such changes to the Agreement. If Mentor does not agree to the changes, Mentor may terminate access to the Site and participation in Futurelab services by following the procedures set forth above.

Violation

The Mentor may report any violation of this Agreement to [email protected]



New Subscription Terms

Subscription Terms for Mentees

All subscriptions are valid for 6 months and all credits will not be able to be used after the expiry date of subscription purchased. You are not able to repurchase a subscription during the 6 months’ period, and will be required to top-up if you run out of credits and wish to continue using our services.

FutureLab offers different packages of subscriptions ("Subscriptions") including, for example, RM 99 ("Starter Pack"), RM 149 (“Value Pack”) and the University Student Pack. FutureLab reserves the right to vary the amount of content and types of service that it makes available to different categories of users at any time. Your offer will only be accepted by us and a contract formed when we have successfully verified your payment and contact details, at which point we will provide you with access to the Subscription (or Top-Up). You will receive confirmation via e-mail when your Subscription offer has been accepted (beginning the fulfilment of a Subscription does not signify acceptance). See more at Fees and Payment below.

Credit distribution for Mentors

The amount of credits Mentees pay for each session will depend on the tier of the Mentor whose services you are engaging in. The Mentor’s credits are allocated according to the number of years of working experience as follows:

Tier of Mentor Working Experience Credits
Tier 1 1 - 3 years 10
Tier 2 3 - 5 years 20
Tier 3 5 - 10 years 30
Tier 4 10+ years 40

All credits cannot be exchanged to another form and are not transferable in any way to a Mentor or Mentee, unless it is via a gift Subscription approved by FutureLab.

Mentees can then use their credits purchased on consultation sessions with Mentors. The credits used per session will depend on the tier number of the Mentor booked. For example, a package of RM150 will amount to 100 credits, which can be used for a total of ten sessions with a Mentor of Tier 1, five sessions with a Mentor of Tier 2 etc. You can also use your credits by engaging one or a combination of the other services we provide, such as Events and Short Questions. Upon completion of a session, Mentors will earn half of the credits based on their tier number.

Gift Subscriptions

FutureLab allows Subscriptions to be purchased as gifts. The person responsible for payments and fees is the person who initially purchased the gift Subscription and only that person may receive any refunds or other payments that may be due in respect of the gift Subscription. Apart from that, these Terms will apply to the beneficiary of any gift Subscription, who may therefore use the Site and access any FutureLab Services and Content only in accordance with these Terms, and all references to "your" or "you" (other than in relation to renewal, payment, fees, refunds and cancellations) shall be read as references to the beneficiary of the gift Subscription.

Fees and Payment terms for Mentees

Mentor Privileges

Mentors are not required to subscribe, and will only need to top-up should they wish to increase their credits. Mentors have the privilege of booking other mentors of the same tier or a tier below them for free. Mentors can also book another mentor that is of a higher tier than them, however they are required to pay the difference in tiers. For example, a Tier 1 Mentor booking a Tier 4 Mentor would cost 30 credits whereas a Tier 1 Mentor booking a Tier 2 Mentor would cost 10 credits etc. Mentors are able to earn half of the credits based on their tiers after conducting a session. To illustrate this, a Mentee can book a Tier 3 Mentor for 30 credit and the said Mentor will receive 15 credits upon completion of session.
