Company's Response

The Company has appointed RSM Corporate Advisory Pte. Ltd. ("RSM") as financial consultant in June 2021, to, inter alia, undertake a review of the Group's businesses and assist to formulate restructuring plans to improve the financial position and/or performance of the Group. To-date, RSM is in the process of reviewing the Group's operations and working with the Company and is expected to formulate and finalise its plans by end of July 2021. [Based on information made available from the management and RSM to-date, in view of the losses incurred by the Group, the Board notes preliminarily that a cash or equity injection and/or a debt restructuring exercise may be required in order for the Group to continue as a going concern. Nonetheless, the Board would like to strongly emphasise that the current situation is highly uncertain and it would only be able to form a final opinion when (1) RSM completes its review and advice on the eventual outcome of such review; (2) the outcome of discussions with key customers, creditors and banks is known and (3) the restructuring plans and its impact, whether financial or non- financial on the Company and/or its respective subsidiaries, have been finalised. Accordingly, as emphasised in the 4Q FY2021 announcement on 15 July 2021, the Company may have to make material adjustments to its financial performance and financial position for the financial period ended 31 May 2021. An appropriate announcement will be made accordingly.

To the best of the Board's knowledge, information and belief, pending the finalisation of the abovementioned matters, the Board confirms that all material disclosures as required pursuant to the Listing Manual of the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited ("SGX-ST") have been announced. The Company will make further announcements as and when there are any material developments on this matter.

Query No 5

Please disclose the current order book of the Group.

Company's Response

As at 31 May 2021, the Group's engineering and construction order book stood at S$212.9 million. Nonetheless, given the limited amount of financial resources in the Group, as part of its on-going restructuring exercise, the Group is in the midst of negotiating to novate or terminate certain projects amounting in aggregate of approximately S$121.2 million. If these projects subject to potential novation or termination are disregarded, the order book would be reduced to S$91.7 million.

Query No 6

On page 17 of the Company's Full Year FY2021 results, the Company disclosed that S$6.339 million from the net proceeds of the renounceable non-underwritten rights issue announced on 29 November 2018 was utilised to finance the expansion and growth of existing businesses, acquisitions and new investments. Please provide details of these businesses and acquisitions where the proceeds from the placement was utilised.
