THE following companies saw new developments that may affect trading of their shares on Wednesday:
Singapore Airlines (SIA): The rights issue of shares by SIA has been fully subscribed, though shareholders were less keen to participate in the rights issue of mandatory convertible bonds, application results out on Tuesday showed. SIA shares closed at S$4.11 on Tuesday, up S$0.23 or 5.9 per cent, before this announcement.
ST Engineering, SIA Engineering Company: With the enhanced Jobs Support Scheme, companies such as ST Engineering and SIA Engineering will receive millions in additional wage support to cushion the blow that Covid-19 has dealt the aerospace industry. But the road to recovery for airlines - and by extension, aerospace - will be a long, hard one, market observers say.
