C&G Environmental Protection Holdings: The mainboard-listed company has entered into a S$400 million proposed deal with Param Mitra Coal Resources that will result in a reverse takeover of the former by India's Sainik-Aryan Group. The Sindhu family owns leading India-based coal, logistics and power player Sainik-Aryan Group that backs and manage Param Mitra Coal Resources.

In a post-market announcement on Thursday, C&G, now a cash company, said it "believes that the proposed transaction will provide an opportunity for the company to remain listed and to acquire a new business that has potential for growth".

The buyer is a wholly owned subsidiary of Soilbuild Group Holdings, which is the sponsor of Soilbuild Reit.

QAF: Breadmaker QAF has decided to cease its bakery operations in China as they continue to be loss-making.

Separately, QAF announced that its group financial controller, Derrick Lum, will resign with effect from Dec 29, 2017, "to attend to personal commitments". Mr Goh Kiat Chiang, a former financial controller at M&L Hospitality, will replace Mr Lum.
