Update on AIM Delisting and NYSE Listing Process, US IPO Quiet Period Rules and Posting of 'Frequently Asked Questions' Document on Company Website
Further to Eros' announcements on 24th April regarding the anticipated acquisition of B4U and 3rd May regarding the expected timing of its proposed delisting from AIM, the Company is pleased to announce that it has agreed with its advisors to include its full-year audited results to March 31st 2012 in its F-1 Prospectus, to be filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission ('SEC') ahead of its proposed NYSE listing. The Company's US listing process is ongoing, and because of the proximity of the offering with the release of year-end numbers, the Company and its advisors believe audited results should be included in the US offering documents. This will provide the market with the most recent disclosure on the Company's financial performance.
The date of its proposed delisting from AIM and final NYSE listing timetable will be announced following the release of our full-year results.
The company further announces that in light of the proposed NYSE listing and consistent with US quiet period rules, it will not be issuing guidance in relation to its financial performance for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012 at this time.
The Company also announces that a Frequently Asked Questions document is now available on its website at: http://www.erosplc.com/Investor-Relations.aspx. The document addresses questions concerning the trading of the Company's A ordinary shares following the one-for-three share consolidation and the proposed cancellation of admission to trading and delisting of its shares on the London Stock Exchange's AIM Market and proposed listing on the NYSE.
A registration statement relating to the Company's A ordinary shares has been filed with the SEC, but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This document shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any offer or sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such state or jurisdiction.
