GOLDEN Agri-Resources : E5H 0% on Wednesday (Aug 31) said plans to list its India subsidiary on both the Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange of India will be suspended.

Gemini Edibles & Fats India (GEF) is in the process of finalising its application to suspend its proposed listing due to “adverse and uncertain market conditions”, the palm oil producer said in a bourse filing.

Golden-Agri announced plans on Aug 8, 2021 to list GEF. It said at the time that it could get 7.5 billion rupees or about US$100 million from the initial public offering of the 56.3-per-cent-owned subsidiary.

“The company and GEF will continue to explore opportunities to enhance shareholders’ value,” Golden-Agri said.

GEF, which is incorporated in India, is engaged in the manufacturing, distribution and branding of edible oils and speciality fats. Its product portfolio includes sunflower oil, rice bran oil, as well as speciality fats for biscuits and confectionery.

Shares of mainboard-listed Golden-Agri ended trading 1.8 per cent or S$0.005 lower at S$0.275 at the close on Thursday.
