Weyland Tech Inc.– Update on Irregular Trading Activity
NEW YORK, NY, July 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Weyland Tech Inc. (OTCQX: WEYL) (“Weyland ” or the “Company”), a provider of mobile business applications, notifies shareholders about potential trading violations and manipulation of it’s shares.
On July 24, trading in the Company’s shares appeared to have a closing price of $1.20, down -1.40 and 53.85%. Upon review of the posted trading activity, it appears that the $1.20 trade occurred at 15:42:01 and was outside the bid/ask, and substantially below market. It was also noticeable from the trading activity that trades occurring subsequent to 15:42:01 occurred between the prices of 2.06 and 2.23, and were not captured by OTCMarkets trade data, thereby making the closing price of Weyland appear as $1.20 for the day.
The company promptly reached out to OTCQX regarding the $1.20 trade and was advised by OTCQX that FINRA had identified the trades after 15:42:01 to be “irregular,” while not identifying the $1.20 trade as “irregular.” The company is working with OTCQX and FINRA to determine the reason for the $1.20 trade not being flagged as “irregular” and being utilized as a valid closing price, while ignoring subsequent trades that were consistent with recent market prices. Further the company is asking that the $1.20 trade be removed from the trading history and the July 24, 2018 close.
The company knows of no reason that shares of the company should have traded to the $1.20 level. The approximate Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) for the day, including these trades, was $2.26 and we believe this a more accurate reflection of Weyland’s closing price on the day.
The company intends to pursue any and all remedies for any irregular trading activity intentionally undertaken and/or facilitated by market participants that negatively impacts the company’s share price.
