Completion of the acquisitions of the remaining two coffeeshops for a total consideration of US$14.54 million will only take place at a later date once the requisite approvals and/or permissions have been obtained, which have been delayed due to COVID 19 disruption.

Part of the total consideration of US$25.4 million has been satisfied through issuance of 22 million new shares at the issue price of US$0.18 per share, representing a substantial premium of close to 15.9% to the volume weighted average price of US$0.15 for the full market day on 2nd June 2020.

Most of these acquired properties will progressively undergo asset enhancement initiatives such as layout improvements, increase of seating capacities, introducing new and exciting food concepts, aimed at retaining current food stall operators, attracting new food stall tenants as well as better serving our customers.
