Latin Resources To Cancel Trading On OTCQX And SETSQX

Latin Resources (ASX: LRS) has cancelled its admission to the OTCQX platform and will cease trading on the SETSQX platform of the London Stock Exchange in line with its ongoing strategy to reduce overheads.

It had previously reduced directors and senior management fees and salaries by 20% and suspended all major exploration until joint venture partners are secured on the Guadalupito & Ilo projects.

The company also reduced staff at its office in Lima, Peru, and reduced the number of external consultants and discretionary spending.

It is also weighing the option of divesting some of its non-core assets.

Shares in the company will cease trading on SETSQX on 5 September 2013. Trading on the ASX will be unaffected.
