Grand River Development Limited


In response to the false statement made through the media by our company's Vice Chairman, Chiu Kuan-Hsun, we clarify as follows:


  1. The media’s report on the evening of January 30, 2024, titled "Suspicions of Embezzlement in the Sky Taipei: Grand River Vice Chairman Releases a ThousandWord Statement in the Evening" was a personal statement by the Vice Chairman Chiu Kuan-Hsun and does not represent the position of Grand River.

  2. In his statement, Chiu Kuan-Hsun takes advantage of his position as the Vice Chairman of Grand River to speak on behalf of Lion Best, a company wholly owned and represented by him, causing confusion with false statements. To protect the interest of the investors and the syndicate banks, this should be clarified.

  3. The illegal transaction by the accused is currently being investigated by the Taipei District Prosecutors Office. Besides conducting internal investigation into any illegal activities, we urge the accused to cooperate with the authorities for investigation, avoid further confusing the public, and to stop attempting to affect the construction of the Sky Taipei.

  4. It is reiterated that the company maintains normal operations with steady finance structure. The Chairman has instructed that the company will fully cooperate with the authorities in the investigation of the aforementioned scandal. Any illegal activities by employees involved will not be condoned or covered up.

  5. For clarification on related news reports, please refer to the announcements on our company's website (URL: https://www.theskytaipei.com).
