United Industrial Corporation (UIC) on Monday made a general offer for the rest of its 80 per cent-owned subsidiary, property developer and office landlord Singapore Land (SingLand).
The offer price of $9.40 per Singapore Land share is 11 per cent higher than the last traded price of $8.45 last Wednesday. The counter has been halted since last Thursday morning and will resume trade at 1 pm on Monday.
UIC said it intends to delist SingLand from the Singapore Exchange if its offer is successful.
