NewOcean Energy to ‘vigorously oppose’ HSBC initiated winding up petition

05 Nov 2021

Hong Kong-listed NewOcean Energy Holdings Limited on Thursday (4 November) announced further details regarding its opposition to the winding up petition filed against the company by Hongkong Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC).

NewOcean Energy Holdings reiterated the winding up petition is not an option after the group received a presentation from the Bermuda Court.

The company notes it has appointed an international law firm to attend and appear at the time of hearing to be held on Thursday (11 November).

It will “vigorously oppose” the winding up petition and take appropriate actions necessary to protect its shareholders, creditors and all parties concerned.

The group states it has been seeking legal advice to take further and other action to protect the company’s interest and the interest of shareholders as a whole and that of its creditors as a whole.

“In view of the possible impact of the winding up petition on the transfer of shares, the company is seeking legal advice as to the necessity of applying for a validation order for such transfer of share made after presentation of the winding up petition or a winding up order is made by the court,” it states.
