The Acquisition will be funded through internal resources and is not expected to have any material financial impact on the consolidated net tangible assets per share and consolidated earnings per share of the Company and the Group for the current financial year ending Dec. 31, 2016.

None of the directors or controlling shareholders of the Company has any interest in the Acquisition, save for their interests arising by way of their respective shareholdings and/or directorships, as the case may be, in the Company, SOCPL and/or DOL.
