QRC launches takeover bid for DLF at S$0.081 per share

QRC Pte Ltd, a consultancy solely owned by Enomoto Hiroyuki, has launched a mandatory takeover offer for Catalist-listed DLF Holdings, offering S$0.081 for each share it does not already own, the engineering firm announced in a Friday bourse filing after market close.

The offeror intends to maintain DLF's listing status on the Singapore Exchange. 

QRC's offer price represents a steep 54.5 per cent discount from DLF's volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of S$0.178 for the month up to Sept 5, and a narrower 29.6 per cent discount to the one-year VWAP and 4.71 per cent discount to the six-month VWAP.

The offer was triggered on Friday, after QRC entered an agreement to acquire a 57.16 per cent stake in the company for S$5.6 million, or S$0.0809 per share. Under the agreement, QRC bought 45 million shares from DLF's former chief executive Wong Ming Kwong and 24.2 million shares from founder Fan Chee Seng.
