Company Update

The Board of Walcom provides an update on its working capital position.

As previously announced, Mr Francis Chi, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, has indicated that he intends to provide a loan of HK$1,230,000 to Walcom Bio-Chemicals Industrial Limited, Walcom’s wholly owned subsidiary. Mr Francis Chi has confirmed to the Company that it is still his intention to provide the loan in full, but that arranging the funding has taken longer than he anticipated.  It is his intention to provide the loan during the week commencing 17 February 2020.

At present and in the absence of the loan from Mr Francis Chi, the Company currently has adequate working capital to meet its liabilities as they fall due until Friday 21 February 2020. The Company is taking what action it can to extend this period, including discussing more favourable trade terms with its customers and suppliers.  However, whilst the Company is hopeful that it will secure the necessary funding from Mr Francis Chi, in the event that it is unable to address the working capital shortfall, it is likely that the Company will be unable to continue its operations and may be forced into liquidation with a consequential diminution in value to shareholders.

Further announcements will be made in due course.
