Mr. Jia will transfer all of his stake in Smart King Ltd. to a creditor trust fund to better protect creditors’ interests and repay their debts.

“More than 90% of Mr. Jia’s debt is debt secured on behalf of the Company, and since all Jia Yueting and LeEco’s assets and bank operating accounts have been frozen by a creditor (far more than the total amount of debt) have directly prevented the company from operating properly until the collapse of LeEco, To date, Mr. Jia has paid more than $3 billion in debt to the company, with a total debt outstanding of approximately $3.6 billion, less the secured debt that has been frozen for disposal and convertible shares, with a net debt of approximately $2 billion. “

On January 2, 2018, and August 21, 2018, LeEco disclosed the Announcement on The Debt-related Transactions of Related Party Companies, and the Announcement on progress in resolving the debt problems of the non-listed system. According to the announcement, through the unremitting efforts of the then management, LeEco and major shareholders and their related parties offset the debtofs of listed companies by means of debt and debt transfer by means of debt.
LeEco has been in talks with major shareholders and their affiliates since August 2018, but as the settlement is settled and executed depending on the willingness and actual execution of the majority shareholder, LeEco has made no progress in dealing with the debts of major shareholders and their affiliates. The debt processing team of the major shareholder and its related parties did not come up with a full and substantively executable treatment plan, and LeEco did not receive any cash for the debt settlement.
All the data released in the Statement on Mr. Jia Yueting’s Personal Bankruptcy Reorganization and the Establishment of a Creditor’s Trust are the results of the single-sided statistical results of Jia Yueting’s Debt Processing Group, and the results of the treatment of debts of LeEco and major shareholders and their related parties have been publicly disclosed.
