Appointment of New Director



NTLG (AIM: NTLG) is pleased to announce the appointment of Matthew Pau as a Non-executive director.


Matthew, who is resident in Hong Kong, is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered accountants of England & Wales and a Certified Public Accountant in Hong Kong.  He obtained an MA in Engineering, Economics and Management at the University of Oxford in the UK.


Matthew practised as an Auditor until 1994 when he left Coopers and Lybrand to become an Investment Manager with ING Baring Private Equity (China).  He is currently Chief Financial Officer in Hong Kong of The Incorporation of Financial Technicians Limited, which provides securities and advisory services in Hong Kong.  He also serves as a Non-executive Director of the Chinese Food and Beverage Group a company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.


Between leaving Coopers & Lybrand and his current role, Matthew gained senior-level experience in the UK, Hong Kong and mainland China in a range of finance-related firms; including BNP Peregrine Securities, Axia Capital Ltd and London Asia Capital Group, where he was Director of Corporate Finance.


In addition to his professional qualifications, Matthew brings to the board of NTLG a wealth of practical international finance experience and relationships in Hong Kong and mainland China that we expect to find particularly valuable as the Company increases its presence there.  We are pleased to welcome Matthew to the board and look forward to working with him.


In the mandatory disclosures set out below, it is stated that Matthew was declared bankrupt in Hong Kong in December 2004.  This was while he was resident in the UK.  The Board of NTLG and its advisers have investigated thoroughly the reasons for this and how Matthew conducted himself over the matter.  The board is completely satisfied that the circumstances leading to the bankruptcy were not triggered by any negligence on his part and that because he was in the UK at the time of the Order and was unaware of it.  As soon as Matthew was alerted to it in 2011, he set about paying his creditors, which he did in full. The bankruptcy order was subsequently annulled.
