Gorilla Technology Group Hires Global Economics Group for Due Diligence, Advancing in Battle Against Illegal Short Selling; Takes Aggressive Action to Defend Stock from Manipulation

-- Investigation Has Uncovered Evidence of Illegal Trading Activity--
--Taking Aggressive Action to Safeguard Shareholder Interests--

LONDON, Aug. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gorilla Technology Group Inc. (“Gorilla”) (NASDAQ: GRRR), a global provider of AI-based edge video analytics, IoT technologies, and cybersecurity, today addressed the price volatility in trading of its stock, which the company suspects is due in large part to illegal manipulation.

Gorilla Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jay Chandan made the following statement:

“Since the merger last summer that took Gorilla public, we have suspected that the volatile trading in our stock was due to more than simple ‘market action’. Huge moves in our share price were often completely unrelated to any news about the company, its sector or its competitors. Over the past few months, we have employed many resources to investigate our suspicions, and now have gathered sufficient evidence of wrongdoing that we feel compelled to warn the public.”

“Most importantly, an investigation by an economic analysis firm with expertise in suspicious trading activity has uncovered compelling evidence suggesting manipulation of our share price. Furthermore, our own review of communications with several of our large shareholders has uncovered evidence of illegal attempts to extort below-market sales of our shares, as well as evidence of illegal attempts at collusion to take activist actions that we believe would harm the company.”

“Today we are putting the suspected bad actors on notice. We know what you have been doing, and we will not sit still and allow you to attempt to destroy our company to enrich yourselves. We will vigorously employ all the tools at our disposal to stop you. I come from a humble background and I am well aware of what it takes to make a single dollar. My heart aches when I see erosion in the value of our shareholders, both retail and institutional, our employees and all good people who believe in Gorilla to becoming a thriving success.”

“Gorilla is an edge AI security convergence company at the beginning stage of material global business growth. Our recently signed contract with the government of Egypt, along with other projects, gives us visibility on up to $300 million of revenue over the next three years, and we continue to build pipeline of other business globally. This is a dramatic change in the profile of the company, and shows the scale of project that we can now service for a larger customer base. The material global business win is a result of the efforts and contributions of our new leadership team. To protect our shareholder value, we stand strong to investigate thoroughly any unlawful attacks from illicit traders that are contributing nothing to our success but rather attempting to harm the company’s growth. We remain confident that we will grow Gorilla into a successful global business in the edge AI security industry in the years ahead.”
