Eros International Rebuts Market Speculation

ISLE OF MAN, United Kingdom--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 9, 2017-- Eros International Plc (NYSE: EROS) (“Eros” or “The Company”), a leading global company in the Indian film entertainment industry, today issued the following corporate update:

“Eros International recently decided to postpone an opportunistic USD international bond offering given the recent change in credit market conditions. The Company appreciates the relationships developed with credit investors over the course of the marketing process and remains in active dialogue to be able to return to the market when conditions improve. Meanwhile, since the contemplated offering was purely to refinance existing debt, the Company does not believe that this has any effect on its liquidity position or its operations.”

“Yesterday, a short-selling website republished certain allegations made in a lawsuit from an anonymous person about purported events that occurred several years before Eros International Plc went public on the NYSE. The lawsuit and all of its allegations are completely baseless and without merit, and the court is currently considering its dismissal. For over a year, short-sellers have spread false claims about the Company to manipulate its stock, and these false claims have been repeated in meritless lawsuits. Eros will continue to vigorously defend itself and its investors against such abusive practices.”
