Description (Please provide a detailed description of the event in the box below)
Jardine Cycle & Carriage Limited ("JC&C") wishes to announce a correction to a typographical error in its announcement earlier today. The number of shares purchased by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Platinum Victory Pte. Ltd. on 28th March 2018 should be 1,710,933 shares and not 41,500,000 shares. The rest of the announcement remains unchanged. Accordingly, the announcement should be as follows:
Jardine Cycle & Carriage Limited ("JC&C") wishes to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Platinum Victory Pte. Ltd. ("PVPL"), has on 28th March 2018 purchased 1,710,933 shares in Refrigeration Electrical Engineering Corporation ("REE") for an aggregate cash consideration of approximately USD3.1 million.
As a result of the purchase, PVPL's shareholding in REE has increased from 23.91% to 24.46%.
The purchase was funded by internal resources, and the consideration was arrived at on a willing-buyer, willing-seller basis having regard to the prevailing market price. As at 28th March 2018, the closing market price of a REE share on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange was VND38,600.
The purchase is not expected to have a material impact on the JC&C Group's net tangible assets or earnings per share. Had the purchase taken place on 1st January 2017, it would not have had a material impact on the JC&C Group's earnings per share for the financial year ended 31st December 2017. Had the purchase taken place on 31st December 2017, it would not have had a material impact on the JC&C Group's net tangible assets per share for the financial year ended 31st December 2017.
None of the Directors or controlling shareholders of JC&C has any interest, direct or indirect, in the transaction (save through their shareholding interests, if any, in JC&C or directorship in REE).
