JINJIANG, FUJIAN PROVINCE, China, Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- China Ceramics Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ Global Market: CCCL) ("China Ceramics" or the "Company"), a leading Chinese manufacturer of ceramic tiles used for exterior siding and for interior flooring and design in residential and commercial buildings, today announced that two members of its Board of Directors have tendered their resignations.
Paul K. Kelly, non-Executive Chairman of the Board, announced his resignation effective the end of business on November 27, 2013. Mr. Kelly cited personal demands and the lack of the necessary time required for these duties as the cause of his resignation. Mr. Kelly had been a director of the Company since August 2009, its non-Executive Chairman since April 2010 and Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company's predecessor company from its inception in 2007.
Cheng Yan Davis announced her resignation from the Board effective the end of business December 31, 2013. Ms. Davis cited the demands of her other responsibilities as the cause of her resignation. Ms. Davis has been a director of the Company since August 2009, and was a board member of the Company's predecessor company from its inception in 2007. The Company believes that the decisions of Mr. Kelly and Ms. Davis to resign from the Board was not due to any disagreement with the Company on any matter related to the Company's operations, policies or procedures or any other concerns regarding the Company.
"I would like to thank Paul Kelly for his leadership and experience in his role as Chairman and appreciate the active engagement of Cheng Davis in her role as a director. We highly value both Paul and Cheng's contributions and believe that our company is stronger for their efforts," said Jiadong Huang, CEO of China Ceramics. "We will look to add qualified independent board members to our Board in the period ahead."
Upon these resignations, the Company's Board of Directors will have two independent directors. The Company will seek to identify new directors to appoint to the Board so as to fill the vacancies created by these departures.
