HCMC – The Hanoi Stock Exchange (HNX) has decided to suspend Dzi An Mechanoelectric Joint Stock Company from trading its DZM shares over information disclosure violations, with effect from December 5.
According to HNX, the company missed the deadlines for releasing its consolidated financial statement for the third quarter this year and publicizing an explanation of its after-tax profit fluctuations.
DZM shares have been restricted from trading on the northern bourse since October 31, as the firm was slow to release its reviewed 2022 semi-annual financial report.
In response, the company explained that its virus-infected server left its software and accounting data breaking down, forcing the company to input data manually and thereby resulting in its failure to release the financial statements on time. The company sought the bourse’s approval to extend the deadlines three times.
On November 14, DZM said it had completed the data input and was working with an audit firm and an IT services provider to review the financial statements. It planned to publicize the reviewed 2022 semi-annual financial report on December 5 at the latest.
However, HNX still imposed the trade suspension on DZM shares, as the company again failed to release its Q3 consolidated financial statement on time while being under trade restriction.
