HONG KONG, Jan. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Euro Tech Holdings Company Limited ("Euro Tech" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CLWT) announced today that it has appointed J&S Associate ("J&S") as the independent registered public accounting firm to audit Euro Tech's consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022.

J&S is headquartered in Malaysia and will be subject to the inspection of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board of the United States (PCAOB). The appointment of J&S has been approved by the Audit Committee and the Board of Directors of Euro Tech. Euro Tech's engagement of J&S as independent auditor completes its process to identify and appoint an independent public accounting firm subject to inspection by the PCAOB, in order to enable Euro Tech to comply with provisions of the U.S. Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act of 2020 (HFCAA).

Euro Tech expects that, upon issuance of consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 that have been audited by J&S, Euro Tech would no longer appear on the SEC's "Conclusive list of issuers identified under the HFCAA," and would no longer be subject to the related delisting guidelines of the HFCAA.
