AFTER real estate and investment company Rowsley said on Tuesday that controlling shareholder and Singapore billionaire Peter Lim will be injecting his 100 per cent Thomson Medical Pte Ltd and 70.36 per cent Bursa Malaysia-listed TMC Life Sciences stakes into the firm, shares of Rowsley climbed 57.5 per cent to open at S$0.115 on Wednesday.

The proposed acquisitions are valued at up to S$1.9 billion, and will be financed through up to 25.3 billion new shares issued to Mr Lim at S$0.075 a share. Warrants will also be issued to existing shareholders upon completion.
