BEIJING, Sept. 22 - Qiao Xing Mobile Communication Co., Ltd. (NYSE: QXM), a manufacturer of mobile handsets in the People's Republic of China, today announced that the special committee of its board of directors has provided a letter to Qiao Xing Universal Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq: XING, or "XING") stating as follows:
The Special Committee (the "Special Committee") of the board of directors of Qiao Xing Mobile Communication Co., Ltd ("QXM") wishes to provide you with an update with respect to the status of its response to the offer of Qiao Xing Universal Resources, Inc ("XING") to acquire all of the outstanding shares of QXM that it does not currently own (the "Minority Shares"), by way of a Scheme of Arrangement under British Virgin Islands law (the "Proposed Offer"). The Special Committee is continuing its process to evaluate the Proposed Offer with the assistance of its advisors and, as you may be aware, has requested additional information from both QXM and XING. The Special Committee will respond to the Proposed Offer as soon as is practicable. However, the Special Committee will not have completed its work in time to meet the September 22, 2010 response deadline that XING has imposed. Please be assured that the Special Committee is working carefully and diligently with its advisors to evaluate the Proposed Offer in a manner consistent with the best interests of QXM and the holders of the Minority Shares.
In this regard, the Special Committee has received, and is considering, communications from several institutional shareholders of QXM in which such shareholders have indicated that they did not believe the Proposed Offer was sufficient and that they did not support the Proposed Offer, noting among other things that as of June 30, 2010 both the net asset value per share, and the cash value per share, of QXM was substantially in excess of the value per share of QXM represented by the Proposed Offer. This information is relevant.
We have provided copies of such communications to XING for XING's information and consideration.
