Soilbuild Reit's sponsor signs term sheet for possible transaction of interests

THE non-executive director of Soilbuild Business Space Reit's manager, Lim Chap Huat, has entered into a non-binding term sheet in relation to a possible transaction involving his interests, and those of his three sons Lim Han Feng, Lim Han Qin and Lim Han Ren in the real estate investment trust (Reit).

In a bourse filing on Friday, the Reit's manager said the signing of the term sheet may or may not lead to a transaction for the Reit's units.

It emphasised that there is no certainty or assurance that any transaction will occur.

Mr Lim Chap Huat, who is also the chairman of Soilbuild Group Holdings holds a 9.2 per cent stake, while Soilbuild Group directors Mr Lim Han Feng, Mr Lim Han Qin and Mr Lim Han Ren own 6.9 per cent each, the spokesperson said.
