The account was opened today and the initial term deposit of approximately RMB 100 million (or USD $16.4 million) has been transferred to the Standard Chartered Account. The remaining portion of the approximate USD $100 million to be transferred will be processed soon. The Company has authorized Standard Chartered Bank to allow an independent verification of the account validity and provide related details to any interested investor who requests the information in good faith. As a result of transferring term deposits to the Standard Chartered Account, NQ Mobile will forfeit certain earned interest and will provide further updates on the financial impact on the Company's Q3 earnings release scheduled for November 12, 2013.
Dr. Henry Lin co-CEO and co-Founder of NQ Mobile remarks, "We remain diligently focused on running our operations and our entire organization and management team is extremely committed to financial transparency. An important step in this process is earning the complete trust of anyone seeking to validate our cash positions. Our actions speak louder than anyone's words and all other arguments and falsehoods fall by the wayside as our cash position is completely and independently verified. We will vigorously defend our company and our products for the benefit of our partners, our customers, and especially our shareholders."
Following the transfer of the aforementioned term deposits, expected to be completed soon, the Company will also maintain its existing account with Standard Chartered Bank and HSBC in Hong Kong where the proceeds of the recent convertible bond offering, totaling approximately USD $166 million, will continue to reside. Additionally, the Company maintains numerous operating bank accounts with cash throughout its organization for the day-to-day operating needs. NQ Mobile will provide a complete update on the balance sheet totals in its regular Q3 earnings release.
