SINGAPORE (Feb 7): The consortium led by CWG International's co-founder will go ahead to delist the company after garnering a 90.19% stake in the property group.
Elidom Investment Co., led by Qian Jianrong and comprising Sinway Investment, H&H Wealth and Floriland Co., announced on Tuesday night it now owns or controls some 597 million shares of the 662 million shares on issue. CWG has no treasury shares.
As the public float has fallen to less than 10%, Elidom says it will despatch a letter to acquire CWG shares from remaining shareholders and take steps to delist the company, as required under SGX's listing rules.
