Good corporate governance improves shareholder confidence in companies and is fundamental to the proper functioning of capital markets. Corporate governance relies on facilitating and encouraging transparency and accountability. Shareholders expect companies to be properly governed, and so corporate governance is primarily concerned with the way in which companies are controlled and directed.

Corporate Governance Policy Improvement

China Resolutions has been instrumental in creating a dialogue for the improvement of corporate governance for Chinese companies seeking to access the London capital markets.

China Resolutions has been working closely with the British Embassy in Beijing, the Chinese Embassy in London, the China Britain Business Council, the Department of International Trade, the Great Britain China Council, the Institute of Directors (China City Branch), the City of London Corporation and the London Stock Exchange to develop and improve governance between China and the UK. As part of this exercise, two groups have been formed, namely China Non-executive Directors ("CNED's") and China City Group, in conjunction with Nabarros' and RSM. The CNED's and China City Group are now working with China Resolutions to provide a draft policy document for the British Embassy in Beijing.

The China City Group consists of lawyers, accountants, NOMAD's, brokers, PR companies, and NED's with an interest in China.

Advisory

China Resolutions is currently working to realise value on a number of projects under mandates from shareholders and/or directors of former AIM companies, including Naibu, China Chaintek, JQW and Camkids, (the "Fujian Companies"). In addition, China Resolutions has been hired by a number of former NASDAQ companies to resolve their issues in China and is also in discussions with a number of other overseas markets to provide a resolution.

The Fujian Companies had an approximate market capitalisation at the time of their AIM listing of £400 million and the NASDAQ companies had an equivalent value of in excess of $1 billion. Shareholders wishing to participate in our recovery program are invited to register below.
