Newater Technology, Inc. Files Response to Lawsuit by Fulcan Capital Partners LLC
YANTAI, China, March 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Newater Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEWA) ("NEWA", or the "Company"), a developer, service provider and manufacturer of membrane filtration products and related hardware and engineered systems that are used in the treatment, recycling and discharge of wastewater, today announced that the Company and its independent committee of the board of the directors (the "Independent Committee") filed a Notice of Application and Certificate of Urgency with the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court in the High Court of Justice, Virgin Islands (the "BVI Court") in response to a lawsuit filed by Fulcan Capital Partners LLC, a Nevada limited liability company ("Fulcan"). Fulcan obtained on March 17, 2021 an ex parte order from the BVI Court enjoining against the Company, the members of the board of the directors, and Tigerwind Group Limited, a special purpose vehicle wholly owned by Mr. Yuebiao Li, from taking any steps to proceed with the proposed "going private" merger transaction. The Company believes that the Fulcan lawsuit is wholly without merit and the ex parte order was obtained through falsehoods and misrepresentations. The Company intends to vigorously defend against Fulcan's claims in court and expects to prevail on merits.
Separately, on March 29, 2021, through its counsel, Fulcan submitted a purported renewed proposal to the Independent Committee, which is substantially the same as Fulcan's previous proposal to take the Company private. As the the Company believes the supposedly renewed proposal offers nothing new in substance and does not even attempt to address the infirmities in the Fulcan proposal identified by the Independent Committee and disclosed in the Company's public filings, the Independent Committee continues to believe that the proposal remains severely lacking in legality, credibility and feasibility.
