REG-Geong International Limited: Statement re CULS
* Reuters is not responsible for the content in this press release.
GEONG International Limited ("GEONG" or "the Company") £2.5 million convertible unsecured loan stock ("CULS") The Company announces that payment of the interest amount due on 31 December 2012 under the CULS was late as a result of unexpected delays in the granting of approval by the State Administration Of Foreign Exchange of China ("SAFE") for the transfer of funds. Payment, which was still being processed on the due date, was made on 15 January 2013. As a result of the late payment which represents a default under the terms of the CULS, the holders, Hanafin Investments Limited ("Hanafin"), have requested immediate repayment of the CULS. Whilst the Company has adequate resources to make the repayment it will not be able to secure the necessary approvals from SAFE to do so in the short term. Accordingly, the Company is seeking to reach an understanding with Hanafin as to an acceptable and achievable timetable for the repayment. The Company retained £3.9 million in cash at 31 December 2012.
