Contents : On 25 February 2010, Ramunia Holdings Berhad (“Ramunia”) made an announcement that it was an affected issuer under Practice Note No. 17 (PN17) of Bursa Malaysia’s Main Market Listing Requirement. (Reference No. CS-100225-5AB34)
The company would like to draw attention to the technical reason that Ramunia was classified under PN17. The PN17 criteria was triggered resulting from Ramunia's auditors expressing a modified opinion with emphasis on Ramunia's going concern in the Company's latest audited consolidated financial statements for the financial year ended 31 October 2009 and Ramunia's shareholders’ equity on a consolidated basis is less than 50% of the issued and paid-up share capital of Ramunia. However, the group’s NTA remain positive.
Notwithstanding Ramunia’s current PN 17 status, the disposal of the Teluk Ramunia Fabrication Yard is ongoing and is expected to be completed by April 2010.
Upon completion of their disposal, the group’s NTA is expected to remain positive and improve to a net cash position. The group has started exploring and considering options to revive and reorganize its core businesses and as part of its regularation plan to address its PN 17 status.
This announcement is dated 1 March 2010.
