TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 25, 2013) - Asia Now Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NOW) ("ANR" or the "Company") announces that due to a clerical error, it filed on SEDAR yesterday, April 24, 2013, the incorrect draft version of the annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012. As a result, at the Company's request, shares of the Company were halted at open of market today pending the filing of the correct version of the annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012 which has now been filed on SEDAR. There were no changes to the corresponding Management's Discussion & Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2012 as filed on SEDAR on April 24, 2013.

The incorrect version of the financial statements filed showed a net loss and comprehensive loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 of $1,870,581. This omitted the write-down of exploration and evaluation assets on the Beiya project of $3,362,285 and the impairment of exploration and evaluation assets on the Habo project of $3,530,000, which results in an increase of the net loss and comprehensive loss for the year ended December 2012 to $8,762,866. The exploration and evaluation assets on the consolidated statements of financial position previously reported of $19,315,391 are reduced for the above two items, plus a sale of exploration rights of $7,985, to $12,415,121. Prepaid and sundry receivables increased from $110,827 by the sale of exploration rights of $7,985 to $118,812.

As a result, the Company's financial statements as filed on SEDAR on April 24, 2013 should not be relied upon and are replaced in their entirety with the correct financial statements filed today, April 25, 2013, as available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
