Award of Two Freehold Sites at Jalan Besar for  S$13.8 Million

Hwa Hong Corporation Limited announced that Global Trade Investment Management Pte Ltd, its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, has on 26 June 2018 exercised an option to purchase two (2) commercial freehold sites comprised in Lots 2706N and Lots 2847M at Jalan Besar, Singapore (the "Subject Sites") from City Developments Limited ("CDL"), for a total purchase consideration of S$13.8 million and on the terms and subject to the conditions of the Option.

The Option had been granted to GTI or its nominee on 12 June 2018 following a public expression of interest exercise undertaken by Jones Lang LaSalle Property Consultants Pte. Ltd. on behalf of CDL. The EOI Exercise was launched on 23 April 2018 and closed on 30 May 2018.

CDL (being an associate of the controlling shareholders of the Company) is an "interested person" for the purposes of Chapter 9 of the Listing Manual, and the Acquisition constitutes an “interested person transaction” under Chapter 9 of the Listing Manual. However, the Acquisition, which was awarded by way of a public tender via the EOI Exercise (as further described below), falls within the exception under Rule 916(5) of the Listing Manual.

The Subject Sites are located in the vibrant Jalan Besar area, a popular location for businesses in the creative industry, and have a freehold tenure. They are located close to City Square Mall and Little India and are served by excellent transport links, being within walking distance of Farrer Park and Jalan Besar MRT stations and a short drive to the central business district. They are also located close to the Beach Road / Ophir-Rochor precinct, one of the key growth areas identified by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore, and Kampong Bugis, a new waterside residential precinct with approximately 4,000 planned new residential dwelling units.

The Subject Sites have a combined site area of approximately 300.1 square meters (approximately 3,230 square feet) and are zoned “Commercial” with a gross plot ratio of 3.0.

Now, real independence is only adequately demonstrated once one cease to become one.

Looking at ex-Chairman Mak's credentials, he was once head of CIMB Singapore and probably doesn't need the money anymore. This once again proves Buffett's view that independence is only found once you have more reputation (than money) to lose.

Hwa Hong discloses potential board candidates’ links to directors, shareholders

The recent developments at the company began on May 4, when Hwa Hong announced the resignation of its former independent and non-executive director, Mak Lye Mun. It attributed the reason to a “disagreement with certain board members on the selection and appointment process of 2 new independent directors”.
