It is known that on February 2, 2024, HOSE sent a reminder letter to Hòa Bình Construction Group Joint Stock Company regarding the possibility of delisting if the organization fails to submit the audit financial statements (AFS) for 3 consecutive years. Therefore, HOSE warned that HBC shares may be delisted if the company continues to be late in submitting the audit financial statements for 2023 (meaning AFS must be submitted before April 1, 2024).

HBC stated that this is just a reminder from HOSE that the company needs to be aware of submitting the audit financial statements for 2023 on time.

HBC affirms that Hòa Bình will strictly comply with regulations to prevent the risk of HBC shares being delisted. Currently, the Group is making efforts to complete the audit financial statements for 2023 ahead of the deadline. Hòa Bình has implemented measures to address the delay in completing the audit financial statements and committed to prevent any risks in ensuring the deadline for submitting the audit financial statements for 2023.

As of now, our measures to address and control risks have been recognized, and on January 19, 2024, HBC shares were officially allowed to resume trading as normal.
