China Hongxing Sports gets extension from SGX-ST to meet new-listing rules

CHINA Hongxing Sports has been granted an extension by the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading (SGX-ST) to meet the requirements for a new listing, the sporting goods company said on Friday.

This involves a proposed reverse takeover through the acquisition of all shares of MMJV Pte Ltd from Mining and Minerals Industries Holding – a move which could make gold mining its core business.

The extension was sought to meet requirements such as the submission of a pre-admission notification to SGX-ST which will happen on or about Sept 25; the lodgement and despatch of a circular to shareholders on or about Oct 31; an extraordinary meeting held on or about Nov 21 for shareholder approval; and the completion of the proposed transaction, on or about Nov 25.

SGX-ST had granted the waiver provided that China Hongxing agree to announce the waiver, its reasons for seeking it and an update after all conditions have been met.
