12 mainboard-listed firms added to SGX watch list

The Singapore Exchange (SGX) added 12 mainboard-listed companies to its watch list for potential delisting and removed one company yesterday following a mid-year review.

The market operator placed KS Energy, China Great Land Holdings, CosmoSteel Holdings, Plastoform Holdings and BM Mobility on the watch list for recording pre-tax losses for the three most recently completed consecutive financial years and having a six-month average daily market capitalisation of below $40 million.

This is the financial entry criteria.

Global Invacom Group, GRP, China Yuanbang Property Holdings, Hiap Seng Engineering, Sunvic Chemical Holdings and Debao Property Development joined the watch list for failing to maintain a volume-weighted average price of at least 20 cents and an average daily market cap of less than $40 million over the last six months. This refers to the minimum trading price (MTP) criteria.

SGX also added Abterra and Sunvic Chemical Holdings to the watch list under both the financial entry and MTP criteria.

The Place Holdings, formerly known as Eucon Holding, meanwhile, has been removed from the watch list.

Mainboard-listed companies on the watch list have 36 months to resolve the criteria that led to their inclusion. They risk being delisted if they fail to cure their status during that window. There are currently 82 companies on the watch list.
