Temporary Suspension of the Trading of Shares in Group Lease Public Company Limited
Request for trading suspension Reference is made to the notifications to the Stock Exchange of Thailand (the "SET") by Group Lease Public Company Limited (the "Company") on a case regarding J Trust Asia Pte. Ltd ("J Trust")'s filing of a petition for rehabilitation of the Company to the Central Bankruptcy Court, where the Central Bankruptcy Court had considered such petition and then laid down an order to dismiss the said petition on 19 March 2018. However, J Trust later submitted an appeal against such court's order to the Court of Appeal for Specialized Cases and the Company submitted an answer amending such appeal on 19 September 2018. The Company hereby notifies you that this morning (26 February 2019), the Central Bankruptcy Court has laid down an order to set the date for hearing of a judgement of the Court of Appeal for Specialized Cases. In this regard, the Company has considered and viewed that such judgement of the Court of Appeal for Specialized Cases may affect the price of the Company's shares and may cause inequality in the information acknowledgement, as some of the investors may use the information derived from the judgement of the Court of Appeal for Specialized Cases in trading the Company's shares before the Company can disclose this formation to the public via SET Portal System. Therefore, in order for the investors to clearly acknowledge the result of the judgement of the Court of Appeal for Specialized Cases, to avoid inequality in the information the investors will receive in trading the Company's shares, and to prevent any factual misunderstanding, the Company would like to request the SET to temporarily suspend the trading of the Company's shares on 26 February 2019 or until the Company has duly disclosed the information on the judgement of the Court of Appeal for Specialized Cases on the rehabilitation case to the public. ______________________________________________________________________ This announcement was prepared and disseminated by listed company or issuer through the electronic system which is provided for the purpose of dissemination of the information and related documents of listed company or issuer to the Stock Exchange of Thailand only.
