Mr. Clayton Fong, L&L Energy's Vice President of US Operations, commented, "We are pleased to announce that ICR will join our financial communications and investor outreach team.  ICR's capital markets expertise will help us to communicate our company strategy and value proposition to investors.  We were particularly impressed with their reputation in the United States, their extensive experience with Asian companies, and their local presence in both Asia and Beijing.  We view this engagement as critical to our goal of maximizing shareholder value as we finalize our application for a secondary listing via Taiwan Depositary Receipts."
