“This bulk sale is a testament to the immense potential of Vietnam Town as one of the preeminent commercial projects in San Jose, California. Vietnam Town Phase II is well on track for completion and we expect to begin delivery of the first block in the second quarter of 2018,” says Celine Tang, SingHaiyi’s group managing director.
Subject to the completion taking place on or before Sept 30, 2018, the disposal of Vietnam Town Phase II units is expected to have a positive impact on the company’s net tangible assets per share or earnings per share for the financial year ending Mar 31, 2019.
