Kinsteel granted more time to submit regularisation plan

PETALING JAYA: Kinsteel Bhd has been granted an extension until Dec 31, 2019 by Bursa to submit a regularisation plan in order to lift its Practice Note 17 (PN17) status.

The credit from the proposed capital reduction of RM58.1 million will be used to offset its accumulated losses, which stood at RM865 million as at June 30, 2019.

Kinsteel is also seeking to raise up to RM46.6 million via a special issue of new shares with free warrants to selected placees; and a of new shares with free warrants to existing shareholders.

In addition, the group proposed a disposal of five parcels of industrial land for RM140 million.

The group was first affected by the PN17 status in October 2016, after its auditor expressed a disclaimer of opinion in its audited financial statements for FY16, when its current liabilities exceeded current assets.
