Note 8. Repurchase Agreement (Disposal of long-term investment)

On April 11, 2012, Viking Investments Group, LLC (“Viking Nevis”) guaranteed that the price of the 566,813 shares of China Wood Inc., publicly listed in the United States with the ticker symbol “CNWD” (the “China Wood Shares”) (that it had previously sold to the Company in consideration of the Company issuing Viking Nevis 14,481,420 shares of Company common stock), would not be less than $4.50 per share and agreed to repurchase the China Wood Shares by tendering shares of common stock of Buyer owned by Guarantor to Buyer if the 45-day volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) of the China Wood Shares was equal to or less than US$4.00 per share. As the 45-day VWAP of the China Wood Shares has been $4.00/share since the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company demanded Viking Nevis repurchase the China Wood Shares, and in a written repurchase agreement executed on April 15, 2013 by both parties, it agreed to do so by returning 7,472,093 shares of the Company’s common stock to the Company for cancellation.

 

The Company had initially relied upon Viking Nevis’s Guaranty and Repurchase Agreement to value the China Wood Shares at $4.00/share in its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011. During the three month period ended September 30, 2013, the Company restated its financial statements as of December 31, 2011, and all financial statements subsequent to that date, to record the China Wood Shares at their carrying value on the transaction date, and such value was fully impaired as of December 31, 2011.

 

On April 15, 2013, pursuant to the Guaranty and Repurchase Agreement, Viking Nevis agreed to repurchase the China Wood Shares from the Company by returning 7,472,093 shares of the Company’s common stock to the Company’s transfer agent for cancellation. Those 7,472,093 shares were cancelled on June 7, 2013.
