Hong Kong-listed NewOcean Energy Holdings Limited (NewOcean) on Friday (21 May) said it has appointed Crowe (HK) CPA Limited as its new auditors.
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu has resigned as the auditor of the NewOcean with effect from 29 April 2021 as the company and Deloitte could not reach a consensus on estimated timetable to complete the audit for the year ended 31 December 2020.
“The Board has resolved, on the recommendation of the audit committee of the Company, to appoint Crowe as the new auditor of the Company, to fill the causal vacancy following the resignation of Deloitte and to hold office until the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of the Company,” it states.
The development has led to the board at NewOcean organising a Special General Meeting (SGM) to be held on 16 June.
“The Board believes that the completion of annual audit of the Group for year ended 31 December 2020 will not be affected if the proposed ordinary resolution to confirm the appointment of new auditor is duly passed by Shareholders at the SGM.”
