Shares of OCBC closed up 1.3 per cent or S$0.15 at S$12.15 on Tuesday after the announcement.

CNMC Goldmine Holdings 5TP : The gold producer said on Tuesday in a regulatory filing that its subsidiary, CMNM Mining Group, has gained approval from the relevant authorities in Malaysia to resume mining operations at its flagship Sokor gold mine in Kelantan.

mm2 Asia 1B0 : The entertainment group's independent auditor noted in a regulatory filing on Tuesday night that in view of the group's latest financial year's net loss and liabilities exceeding assets, these conditions "indicate that a material uncertainty exists that may cast significant doubt on the group's ability to continue as a going concern". mm2 Asia advised shareholders to read the audited financial statements in its annual report, which will be available before July 15 on its website and SGXNet. Shares of mm2 Asia rose 2.5 per cent or 0.2 Singapore cent to close at 8.1 cents on Tuesday.
