COSCO (Lianyungang) shareholders pass a resolution to dissolve the company.
The company is principally engaged in ship repair work, and the decision ot dissolve it was made in light of the landlord of the shipyard in which the operations of COSCO Lianyungang are carried out not agreeing to renew the lease, and losses that have been suffered by COSCO Lianyungang due to the slumping ship repair market.
The resolution to dissolve COSCO Lianyungang requires the internal approval of the respective shareholders of COSCO Lianyungang before being effective. An announcement will be made when the resolution becomes effective.
Based on information currently available, the dissolution of COSCO Lianyungang is expected to result in a one-off charge of approximately SGD 10 million to the company for the financial year ending 31 December 2013.
