Mark to Market ‘Live’ returns with Straits Trading’s Eric Teng

SUBSCRIBERS to The Business Times (BT) can look forward to another instalment of Mark to Market ‘Live’ on Oct 5.

Launched in June, the webinar series is an extension of BT’s award-wining senior correspondent Ben Paul’s weekly Monday column and monthly podcast of the same name.

Mark to Market ‘Live’ follows the format of a fireside chat, during which Paul engages key corporate decision-makers in a series of candid discussions.

His inaugural guest was OCBC Bank’s group chief executive officer, Helen Wong; in the upcoming instalment, he will be joined by Straits Developments’ chief executive, Eric Teng.

Straits Trading made headlines last year when its transformation sparked a more-than-50-per-cent rally in its stock price.

Earlier this month, August, Straits Trading H1 net profit surged 448.9 per cent to S$673m on strong contributions from its real estate segment.

Its shares soared as much as 10.1 per cent to a 4-month high of S$3.37 after a special dividend was declared on the back of its results.

Access to Mark to Market ‘Live’ is exclusively for BT subscribers and Straits Trading shareholders. In addition, shareholders who register on the Straits Trading Shareholders’ Club will also receive a one-year complimentary subscription to BT.
