Asia Entertainment & Resources Ltd. Provides Update On Hong Kong Listing

Stocks in this article: AERL

Asia Entertainment & Resources Ltd. (“AERL”) (NASDAQ:AERL), which operates through its subsidiaries and related promoter companies that act as VIP room gaming promoters, today announced that due to unforeseen circumstances may have to delay its planned listing on the Hong Kong exchange.

The company was recently informed that the sponsor’s principal who is in charge of our Hong Kong listing application has unexpectedly passed away at home. Such unfortunate development was completely unanticipated and resulted in complications for the Hong Kong dual listing application which has otherwise been progressing according to plan. As a consequence of this event, a new sponsor’s principal would need to be appointed in order for the project to proceed. The role of sponsor’s principal in the sponsor’s team in charge of the project is critical as he or she is in charge of the overall project execution including directing the due diligence exercise to the satisfaction of Hong Kong regulatory authorities. Failure of such sponsor’s principal to fulfill his or her duty may lead to misleading statements or material omissions relating to a listing applicant being presented to investors which could result in potential criminal or civil liability for the sponsor firm and also personal liability for the sponsor’s principal. As such, the sponsor is currently reviewing the situation and is expected to provide, within a reasonable time, a replacement sponsor’s principal who would carry on all the relevant due diligence work relating to our listing application in order to be satisfied that our application is ready to be filed. Such developments may unavoidably create certain delays for our listing application timetable and the company is still assessing the potential impacts and we will keep the investors updated on further developments on the filing
