Company Briefs: Holdings Holdings

A discrepancy of $5.2 million between its unaudited and audited financial statements for fiscal 2017 was due to the company's restructuring exercise, travel agency Holdings said.

Out of the adjustment of $5.2 million loss before income tax, $2.6 million loss is attributable to owners of the company, it added.

The bulk of the difference came from the $4.5 million related to the allowance for doubtful debt of two 50 per cent-owned subsidiaries involved in the offline travel business, as the group seeks to exit the sector.

Following the completion of the placement, the subscription shares will collectively represent about 16.66 per cent of the firm's enlarged share capital.
