EXTENSION OF TIME TO RELEASE BOUSTEAD FY2020 SUSTAINABILITY REPORT
Singapore, 9 July 2020
The Board of Directors ("Board") of Boustead Singapore Limited (the "Company") refers to the Company's announcement on 4 May 2020 on the automatic extension of time granted by the Singapore Exchange Regulation ("SGX RegCo") for it to hold its annual general meeting ("AGM") for the financial year ended 31 March 2020 ("FY2020"). The Company had announced that it intends to convene its FY2020 AGM by 29 September 2020.
SGX FAQs1 titled 14 May 2020, specifically under question 9, states that for companies with a financial year-end of 31 March 2020, their sustainability reports that are contained within annual reports would observe the extended annual report deadlines, while standalone sustainability reports must be issued within one (1) month after the extended deadline granted to the issuer to hold its AGM.
In view of the above, the Company intends to release its Boustead FY2020 Sustainability Report by 29 October 2020.
