Hong Kong-listed oil and bunkering firm Brightoil Petroleum Holdings on Friday published its unaudited financial results for the financial year (FY) ended 30 June 2017, 2018, 2019, and six months ended 31 December 2017 and 2018 due to compliance with a listing rule of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
“Rule 13.49(3)(i)(c) of the Listing Rules provides that where an issuer is unable to issue its preliminary results, it must announce its results based on the financial results which have yet to be agreed with the auditor (so far as the information is available),” it stated.
In short, the unaudited results for the respective financial years ended 30 June (in HKD million) are as follows:
“The Board wishes to emphasise that the information set out above is only based on a preliminary review and assessment on the unaudited management accounts of the Group and the information currently available for the Audit Committee of the Company and has not been confirmed, reviewed nor audited by the Company’s auditor,” states Brightoil.
“The Audit Committee cannot perform a comprehensive assessment on the Unaudited Management Accounts.
“The Board cannot guarantee that the unaudited financial results truly reflect the financial performance and condition of the Company and might be misleading if any potential adjustment has to be taken into account.
“Shareholders and potential investors should exercise caution when considering the above figures and when dealing in the securities of the Company.”

Trading of Brightoil’s shares on the Stock Exchange has been suspended since 3 October 2017.
