A Chinese tech tycoon is denying that his ten-figure gambling losses at Saipan’s Imperial Pacific casino are to blame for the near-bankruptcy of smartphone maker Gionee.

中国一名技术大亨在塞班帝国太平洋赌场输掉了十几亿元,但他否认这与智能手机制造商金立的濒临破产有关。

Last weekend, Chinese business media outlet Securities Times published an interview with Gionee chairman/CEO Liu Lirong in which he denied reports that he’d lost up to RMB10b (US$1.44b) gambling at the Imperial Pacific Resort casino on the island of Saipan.

上周末,中国商业媒体《证券时报》发表了对金立董事长兼首席执行官刘立荣的采访。刘立荣在采访中否认了有关他在塞班帝国太平洋度假村赌场输掉了100亿元人民币(约合14.4亿美元)的报道。

Gionee, which holds 6% of China’s smartphone market, is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, with around RMB17b in debts on its balance sheet. Suppliers have cut off the company after several months of non-payments, leaving the company’s future severely in doubt.

在中国智能手机市场占据6%份额的金立正濒临破产,资产负债表上负债约170亿元人民币。供应商在该公司几个月未付款后切断了与其的联系,使金立的未来受到严重怀疑。

In January, a court in the Chinese city of Dongguan ordered a two-year freeze of Liu’s 41% stake in Gionee, reportedly based on growing awareness of the exec’s mounting gambling debts.

一月,中国东莞市一家法院下令冻结了刘立荣在金立41%的股份,为期两年。据报道,原因是外界越来越意识到这位高管的赌债越来越多。

Liu said the rumors of his gambling debts were greatly exaggerated, saying “how could I possibly lose” the reported RMB10b sum. Liu added that if the rumors were true, Imperial Pacific International’s Hong Kong-listed shares “should have surged” instead of falling by half since the start of the year.

刘立荣说,关于他赌债的传闻被严重夸大了,他说“我怎么可能输掉100亿元”。他补充道,如果传言属实,帝国太平洋国际在香港上市的股票自年初以来“应该大幅上涨”,而不是下跌一半。

Liu did admit that he’d lost “a bit more than RMB1b” ($144m) from his gambling activity.

刘立荣承认,他在赌博活动中输掉了“10亿多元人民币”(约合1.44亿美元)。
