G Neptune Seeks Shareholders’ Approval to Acquire Soutern Score, a construction Management Services Company, as part of its Proposed Regularisation Plan

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 22, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – G Neptune Berhad is pleased to announce that its circular, which includes multiple proposals as part of its proposed regularisation plan, has been issued today. Upon completion, the proposed regularisation plan is expected to address its Guidance Note 3 (GN3) status as well as to return it to a stronger financial standing and profitability that will benefit all stakeholders.


Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Southern Score Gan Yee Hin and Executive Director and Head of Group Investment Banking & Islamic Banking of Kenanga Investment Bank Berhad Datuk Roslan Hj Tik [L-R]


The proposed regularisation plan includes amongst others, the proposed acquisition of the entire equity interest in Southern Score Sdn Bhd from Super Advantage Property Sdn Bhd for a purchase consideration of RM252.0 million to be satisfied through the issuance of 1.68 billion shares.

Southern Score is a construction management services company with a recorded net profit of RM6.51 million, RM19.20 million and RM35.18 million in the financial year ended 31 December 2019, 2020 and 2021 respectively. Super Advantage, being the vendor of Southern Score, has provided cumulative net profit guarantee of RM80.0 million over the three-year period from 2022 to 2024. Super Advantage is held by Tan Sri Datuk Seri Gan Yu Chai, the Managing Director of Southern Score, a veteran in the construction and property development industries with more than 30 years' experience as well as Gan Yee Hin, the Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Southern Score.

Other than the proposed acquisition, the proposed regularisation plan also entails the following:

– proposed consolidation of every ten existing shares in G Neptune into one consolidated share;
– proposed settlement of debt amounting to RM3.1 million to Mr. Chai Tham Poh, an Executive Director of G Neptune, via the issuance of 20.67 million shares;
– proposed private placement of 543.05 million shares at an issue price to be determined later but shall not be less than 20 sen per share to eligible investors to be identified later; and
– proposed exemption under the take-over rules from the obligation to undertake a mandatory take-over offer for the remaining G Neptune shares not already owned by Super Advantage as well as Tan Sri Datuk Seri Gan Yu Chai and Gan Yee Hin.

Through the proposed private placement, G Neptune aims to raise at least RM108.61 million to be used for amongst others, the purchase of building materials and repayment to contractors for future construction projects, as well as for TCS SS Precast Construction Sdn Bhd (TSPC), a CIDB Grade 7 contractor in which Southern Score owns a 35% stake.

Additionally, to better reflect the Company's corporate identity going forward, it is proposed that the Company name "G Neptune Berhad" be changed to "Southern Score Builders Berhad".

Commenting on the proposed acquisition, Gan Yee Hin, said, "The proposed acquisition of Southern Score is an integral part of the regularisation plan as it will enable G Neptune to enter into the construction industry which is a thriving and growing industry. This will also help in regularising the Company's financial condition as it currently does not have a core business to sustain its listing status. We expect Southern Score to benefit from the growth in the construction sector which is expected to be positive in 2022 following the reopening of Malaysia's economy."

"We also intend to venture into the manufacture of Industrialised Building Systems (IBS) products through TSPC as we see demand rising given that the construction sector is moving towards the adoption of IBS for better construction quality and productivity, less dependency on foreign labour as well as lower costs. Government initiatives are also supportive of this adoption."

The proposed regularisation plan and the proposed change of name are subject to, amongst others, GNB shareholders' approval at the forthcoming general meeting to be held on 13 September 2022.

Kenanga Investment Bank Berhad is the principal adviser and sponsor for the proposed regularisation plan as well as placement agent for the proposed private placement while Malacca Securities Sdn Bhd is the independent adviser for the proposed exemption.

Ching Lee Holdings (3728.HK) earns HK$1.54 billion of total contract values

HONG KONG, Aug 17, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Ching Lee Holdings Limited ("Ching Lee" or "The Group"(1), stock code 3728.HK) signed about ten contracts for construction projects with various property developers at the end of June this year. The accumulated unfinished contract values of approximately HK$1.54 billion marked a historic record of doubling from year on year and compared to the general period before the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2018, it was a 50% increase. These are unprecedented results in history.

Thanks to the confidence of major Hong Kong property developers in the properties industry and their support of the Group, Ching Lee has been awarded several high-quality superstructure construction projects, covering traditional luxury residential areas such as Prince Edward Road West in Ho Man Tin, the Happy Valley district, the Central district and the mid-levels of Hong Kong Island, etc. Highlights of the reconstruction include developing a 25-storey boutique-style building for 69 residential units, as well as participating in the renovation of the hotel and rebuilding it into a residence for rental purposes. In addition, the Group has added superstructure, substructure, and RMAA(2) projects in Soy Street in Mongkok, Ma Tau Wai Road in Hunghom, Cheung Sha Wan Road, and To Kwa Wan in response to the Hong Kong Government's Urban Renewal Plan.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 for more than two years, all walks of business have been struggling. The operation of the construction industry has been adversely affected by the problems of delaying transportation and the price rise of raw materials. Despite the difficulties, Ching Lee did not retreat, but also swam upstream and achieved a great year. In recent years, Ching Lee has seized opportunities to invest in property markets including the success of the investment in the AVA228 residential project of Sham Shui Po in 2018 and the acquisition of the commercial and residential project in To Kwa Wan this year with invested capital of HK$24 million, accounting for 20% of the total investment. Ching Lee has gradually and successfully transitioned from being a contractor to a developer through its experience and expertise in the construction industry.

Commented by the Group Chairman Mr. Ng Choi Wah who is a developer and a contractor, "I am confident to be able to run the whole process in the property industry from construction to sales." Mr. Ng also expressed optimism about the overall market demand and the current business situation. He also expected the operation to continue performing well in the coming year.

SKYX Achieves Historic U.S. Standardization Approval Vote – a Major Milestone Towards Mandatory Status for Safety of Consumers and Professionals

MIAMI, FL, Aug 9, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – SKYX Platforms Corp. (NASDAQ:SKYX) (d/b/a "Sky Technologies") ("SKYX," "we" or "the Company"), a highly disruptive platform technology company, with over 60 issued and pending patents globally for simplifying and enhancing safety and automation in homes and buildings, today announced that its universal safe installation specifications for plug & play ceiling outlet for lighting and fan products has been officially voted on and approved by ANSI/NEMA, the leading U.S. standardization organizations for the standardization of the SKYX safe weight-bearing plug and outlet/receptacle for ceilings ("SkyPlug").

The American National Standards Institute ("ANSI") is the leading U.S. standards approval organization, whose standards are regularly specified by most architects and engineers for U.S. residential and commercial buildings to ensure safety, quality and reliability. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association ("NEMA") is a standards-developing organization that promotes the standardization of major U.S. electrical products for manufacturers. The achievement of an ANSI / NEMA vote approval is a lengthy and rigorous process, widely considered to be very difficult to achieve. Examples of other products that are standardized include the wall outlet, GFCI bathroom outlet and other key products that are included in every home in the U.S.

The standardization of the SKYX plug & play weight-bearing plug and outlet/receptacle for ceilings by ANSI/NEMA will universally provide SKYX's product specifications to manufacturers to help save lives, time and money for both professionals and consumers, enabling them to install light fixtures and ceiling fans with a safe plug & play installation in just minutes, if not seconds.

Rani Kohen, Founder and Executive Chairman of SKYX Platforms, said: "This standardization approval vote opens the door to major sales and licensing opportunities, as well as a milestone achievement not only for SKYX, but for consumers and professionals across the nation. In today's world, I believe that consumers and professionals shouldn't have to risk their lives standing on ladders for a long time, while touching hazardous wires to install light fixtures and ceiling fans. Additionally, this is a significant development for lighting and fan companies as well as showrooms. It not only saves their customers both time and money, but enables them to safely and quickly replace light fixtures and ceiling fans, and purchase fixtures much more often for a variety of reasons – be that to match fashion trends, accommodate the changing of seasons, holidays and more."

Mark Earley, former Chief Electrical Engineer at NFPA, former head of the NEC and current Chair of the SKYX Safety Advisory Board, said: "This is a significant achievement for SKYX and the safety of U.S. consumers and professionals. With hundreds of millions of installations taking place in the U.S., there are many risks associated with installing or replacing light fixtures and ceiling fans. These risks include injuries and deaths from fires, shocks, electrocutions, and falls from ladders. These risks can be reduced by using the SKYX safe plug and play installation method, that also saves installation time, which substantially reduces time spent on ladders."

Bernard Zyscovich, a leading U.S. architect, internationally recognized design and thought leader, and Chair of the SKYX Architectural & Real Estate Advisory Board, said: "Having the ANSI/NEMA approval vote to include a design of a product is on top of the list for architects and engineers and a substantial deciding factor determining builders' product acceptance. As it reflects product integrity, quality and most important, safety. This achievement by SKYX's ceiling outlet receptacle and plug is ground-breaking."

Sarawak Consolidated Industries Berhad Signs MoU for Indonesian 4G Telco Tower Project

KUCHING, MALAYSIA, Aug 3, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Civil engineering specialist Sarawak Consolidated Industries Berhad (SCIB) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with PT. Semesta Noor Berkarya (SNB) and PT. Envy Manajemen Konsultansi (EMK) to explore the formation of a partnership in relation to the construction of 4G telecommunications towers for Indonesia's outermost regions.


Rosland bin Othman, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of SCIB


Under the MoU, SCIB will anchor the formation of the partnership as well as providing the corporate management setup. SNB, a state-owned enterprise of the Republic of Indonesia is an engineering, procurement and construction specialist with expertise in handing large-scale domestic projects, will build and install the 4G telecommunications towers, including site survey and acquisition as well as other supporting infrastructure works. EMK, which is involved in business advisory, consultation, project management and other corporate management activities, will provide project management services through operational and technical supervision.

The project, which comes under Indonesia's Telecommunications and Information Accessibility Agency (Bakti), is expected to take three years to complete and involves the construction and installation of 4G telecommunications towers in 3,704 villages. Bakti is an agency under the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology tasked to provide the telecommunications network.

Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of SCIB, Encik Rosland bin Othman, said, "We look forward to working with SNB and EMK on the project, which is part of the push to provide internet accessibility to Indonesia's outermost, remote and underdeveloped areas as part of the country's national digital transformation framework."

"SCIB is at a distinct advantage for this project as more than 60% of the proposed sites of the 4G telco towers are located in Kalimantan in Indonesian Borneo, which provides optimal opportunities to synergise our business as our three factories are located in Kuching, Sarawak. The project supports our strategy to diversify geographically by seeking opportunities for our engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) business, and we will certainly take this opportunity to also explore roles in the building of Indonesia's multibillion-dollar new capital at Nusantara."

SCIB leverages on its manufacturing business producing building materials as well as Industrialised Building System (IBS) to complement the EPCC business. The Company is the largest precast and IBS manufacturer in East Malaysia with the capacity to produce 500,000 tonnes of building materials annually.

Mitsubishi Electric Building Solutions Delivers 123 Elevators to Large Office Building in China

TOKYO, Aug 2, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Mitsubishi Electric Building Solutions Corporation (MEBS, Head Office: Chiyoda-Ku, Tokyo; President: Tadashi Matsumoto) announced today that Shanghai Mitsubishi Elevator Co., Ltd. has delivered 123 elevators for JD.com's new Headquarters building *1 for second phase construction.


JD.com Headquarters (Second Phase Construction)


The building is located in Yizhuang Economic Development Zone in Beijing and has a total floor area of 530,000 square meters. Approximately 15,000 people work in the 19-story building complex consisting of three parts (A, B and C office buildings), including five underground floors. Since many employees and visitors come and go every day, the occupation density on each floor is expected to be higher than that of a typical building. Accordingly, shortening the waiting time for elevators was a challenge.

Of the 123 units delivered, 84 are large-capacity elevators that are usually installed in 40 to 50-story buildings. These units can be operated under a group control system and MEBS's Destination Oriented Allocation System (DOAS) to efficiently transport large numbers of users at once, easing congestion in the buildings and contributing to comfortable travel.

Product Features

JD.com's new Headquarters building is recognized as a smart building with a variety of new cutting-edge building facilities installed, including facial recognition access, IP telephone and web conferencing systems using a high-speed 5G network, and AI-based building monitoring and smart lighting systems. MEBS is supporting smooth movement within the building by delivering elevators that are compatible with group control system and DOAS operation.

1) Group control system to enhance operational efficiency
– This system controls multiple elevators at all times to reduce waiting time and save electricity.
– The introduction of AI maximizes operational efficiency by predicting traffic in the buildings and controlling the number of elevators allocated accordingly.

2) Destination Oriented Allocation System (DOAS) to ensure comfortable travel
– This system eases congestion in elevator lobbies by distributing passengers according to their destination floor.
– By holding an ID card over the card reader, users can register their destination floor in advance and board the elevator without touching the hall button.

MEBS's Elevator Business in China

China is the world's largest elevator and escalator market, with an annual demand for new elevators and escalators exceeding 900,000 units. Although the growth in units sold has slowed considerably in recent years due to restrained speculation in the real estate market, moderate expansion is expected to continue against the backdrop of actual demand for public infrastructure and housing. MEBS will continue to respond to the needs of the Chinese market by providing safe, reliable, and comfortable products and services.
