Tomei Looking At Listing Jewellery Design And Manufacturing Arm On ACE Market But Unsure Of Timeline

KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 7): Tomei Consolidated Bhd is mulling over the listing of its design and manufacturing of jewellery arm through a special purpose vehicle (SPV) on the ACE Market.

In a bourse filing, Tomei said that it is planning to list YXG Group, which will house four wholly-owned subsidiaries — Yi Xing Goldsmith Sdn Bhd, Gemas Precious Metals Industries Sdn Bhd, Emas Assayer Sdn Bhd and GPM Refinery Sdn Bhd. However, the company did not reveal any timeline of the listing plan.

“The board wishes to highlight that the details of the proposed listing have yet to be determined at this juncture as the proposed listing is still being considered preliminarily, whereby preparatory work is required. Further, such preparatory work is extensive and may take an uncertain period of time,” it said.
