Legal Proceedings

 

On August 9, 2022, certain subsidiaries of TROOPS, Inc. (the “Company”), including First Asia Finance Limited, SGOCO International (HK) Limited, and Suns Tower Limited (the “Subsidiaries”) were served with a writ of summons in Hong Kong and received injunctions dated August 5, 2022, issued by the High Court of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Court of First Instance in connection with the writ of summons. Pursuant to the injunctions, the Company, the Subsidiaries, and Giant Connection Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, cannot remove any of its assets which are within Hong Kong and cannot dispose of or deal with or diminish the value of any of its assets within Hong Kong up to certain amounts.

 

The case is in the preliminary stages, and the Company has not yet responded to the complaint. The Company believes the lawsuit is without merit and intends to defend the case vigorously. As of the date of this report, the Company is unable to estimate a range of loss, if any, that could result were there to be an adverse final decision in this case.
