DALLAS and BEIJING, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NQ Mobile (NYSE: NQ), a leading global provider of mobile Internet services, announced today that the Independent Special Committee of its Board of Directors has retained the global law firm of Shearman & Sterling LLP to advise it in connection with its independent review of the allegations raised in a report issued by a short-seller research company dated October 24, 2013.   Shearman & Sterling has engaged Deloitte & Touche Financial Advisory Services Limited as forensic accountants to assist it in the matter.

The engagement of Shearman & Sterling LLP and Deloitte & Touche Financial Advisory Services Limited reflects the Independent Special Committee's commitment to thoroughly address the allegations, and is representative of the full transparency with which the Company and the Board have responded to this matter.  

As previously announced, NQ Mobile believes that the short-seller's report contains numerous errors of fact, false suppositions and malicious interpretations of events.  Nevertheless, in order to provide the highest level of transparency to its shareholders, the Company's Board of Directors formed the Independent Special Committee on October 25, 2013 to conduct a review of the allegations.
