The two top executives of ailing Asian cruise operator Genting Hong Kong have quit.

The resignation of Lim Kok Thay, the company's chairman, chief executive officer and executive director, and Colin Au its deputy chief executive officer, group president and executive director, was announced on Monday.

Their departures come as Genting revealed suspensions for its Asian cruise brands.

In a statement to the Hong Kong Exchange, Genting said Lim and Au's resignations were made in consideration of joint provisional liquidators being appointed by a Bermuda court on 20 January.
