Uzbekistan: Oxus Gold Suspends Trading over Lack of Partner's Cooperation
Embroiled in a dispute with Uzbek authorities about valuation of its shares in a joint venture as it attempts to exit Uzbekistan, the British company Oxus Gold, suspended share trading June 29, the Financial Times reported.
Company officials cited the reason for halting of trades on the Aim, the Alternative Investment Market for small companies on the London Stock Exchange, was that it could not gain access to information needed to publish 2010 financial results in keeping with Aim's rules.
Oxus said it had been prevented by its Uzbek partner in its 50% joint venture, Amantayau Goldfields (AGF), from obtaining the reports, Yahoo Finance reported.
In March, the share value of Oxus dropped in half to 1.52 pence when the dispute with the Uzbek company emerged, and it closed June 29 at only .85 pence.
