MAINBOARD-LISTED Vibrant Group and its subsidiaries, together with Figtree Developments Ptd Ltd (FDPL), entered into a joint venture agreement with the existing shareholders of Chongqing Pucheng Logistics to subscribe for new shares in Pucheng.

Vibrant and FDPL, a subsidiary of Figtree Holdings Limited, will each subscribe for a 31 per cent and 20 per cent stake in the enlarged share capital of Pucheng for a cash consideration of 31 million yuan (S$6.28 million) and 20 million yuan, respectively.
