Linktone Announces Listing Of Shares On Australian Securities Exchange

SINGAPORE, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Linktone Ltd. (NASDAQ: LTON) ("Linktone" or the "Company"), a provider of media and entertainment content and services in key strategic markets in Asia, today announced that the Australian Securities Exchange ("ASX") has approved the listing of its shares, in the form of CHESS Depositary Interests ("CDIs"), on the ASX.  The Company's CDIs will begin trading on the ASX under the ticker symbol "LTL" on Friday, September 13, 2013.  The Company's American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") will continue to trade on the NASDAQ Global Market under the ticker symbol "LTON". 

Each CDI represents ten ordinary fully paid shares of the Company (each ADS also represents ten ordinary shares of the Company). The Company noted that no additional ordinary shares have been issued and no additional capital has been raised in connection with this listing. Holders of the Company's NASDAQ-listed ADSs will be able to convert their shares into CDIs, and CDI holders will be able to convert their shares into ADSs, should they wish to do so. Additional information on the share conversion process can be found under the Shareholder Services section of Linktone's investor relations website at: www.linktone.com/en/ir/shareholder-services.html

Commenting on the announcement, Mr. Hary Tanoesoedibjo, Linktone's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Having carefully reviewed our options among the major exchanges in the Asia-Pacific region, we believe the ASX provides an ideal listing venue for our shares in light of the market's strong profile, liquidity and proximity to our core markets. This dual listing on the ASX gives us both the opportunity to reach out to investors who are located closer to and have greater familiarity with our key operating regions and an avenue to explore further opportunities in the media and entertainment industry in Australasia, directly in line with our multi-platform, multi-genre and multi-territory strategy."
