Bursa Malaysia reprimands Khee San, slaps RM885,000 fine against nine directors

29/06/2022 10:13 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, June 29 (Bernama) -- Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd has publicly reprimanded Khee San Bhd and nine of its directors for breaches of Bursa Malaysia Main Market Listing Requirements.

In a statement today, Bursa Malaysia Securities said it had imposed total fines of RM885,000 on the nine directors.

It said Khee San was publicly reprimanded for failing to make an immediate announcement on the defaults in payment of various credit facilities by the company and its major subsidiary, Khee San Food Industries Sdn Bhd (KSFI).

Bursa Malaysia Securities said the company also failed to ensure the representation that the company was solvent and would be able to pay all its debts as and when they fall due within the period of 12 months in the announcements dated Aug 8, 2019; June 23, 2020 (amended on June 24 and 25, 2020); and July 6, 2020.

“The solvency declarations dated Aug 13, 2019  and June 29, 2020 were accurate and not false or misleading,” it said.

It said Khee San was also reprimanded for corporate governance breaches where, among others, it failed to ensure the designation/role of Datuk Seri Liew Yew Chung as non-executive chairman/director was accurate and not false or misleading in the annual report for the financial year ended June 30, 2017 issued on Oct 31, 2017 and the annual report for the 18-month financial period ended Dec 31, 2018 issued on May 8, 2019.

“Bursa Malaysia views the contraventions seriously as the requirements to make an immediate announcement of material default in payment of credit facilities and provide accurate solvency declarations are fundamental to enable investors to make informed investment decisions concerning the listed issuer’s financial condition.

“In addition, it is imperative for the board of directors to comply with the corporate governance requirements which serve to, among others, promote corporate accountability to the shareholders and investing public," it added.
