A consortium that includes Singapore-listed developer Oxley Holdings has clinched "preferred bidder" status for the Yangon Central Railways Station Area Comprehensive Development Project in Myanmar.
Oxley said in a late Wednesday filing that the award of the contract is subject to completion of negotiations and legal arrangements.
The mixed development project will comprise a transportation hub that integrates rail and mass transit, surrounded by housing and commerce amenities. It will occupy an area of 25.7ha, with an intended development gross floor area of about 1.1 million sq m.
Digital media storage maker Datapulse said that based on current progress, the board will be able to hold an extraordinary general meeting to consider the proposed business diversification and the proposed change of board by April 27.
At the direction of Singapore Exchange, Datapulse said it will hold a shareholders' dialogue together with the Securities Investors Association Singapore on April 17 to speak on recent events, including its proposed business diversification.
The Datapulse board and management, as well as professional advisers, will be present at the dialogue.
