The Group's operating environment remains challenging against a backdrop of a weak retail industry and volatile exchange rates in our major markets, increasing margin pressures, rising costs across geographical regions, as well as manpower tightening policies in Singapore.
The Group had launched its new "shop-in-shop" concept by introducing Japanese Supermart brands "Gyomu Super" inside its BIG BOX Hypermart, and the niche display of products by country of origin. The Group will continue to focus on building up its retail business, strengthen BIG BOX operations to increase its market share and the expansion of its Indonesian operations. These will contribute to the Group's financial performance in the long run.
The Company is being restructured under the Scheme of Arrangement (the "Scheme") sanctioned by the Court of Appeal in Singapore on 13 October 2010. The effective date of the Scheme is 19 April 2010.
The ability of the Group and the Company to continue in operation in the foreseeable future and to meet their financial obligations (both short term and long term) as and when they fall due is dependent on:
- the successful implementation of the Scheme;
- the profitability of future operations of the Company and its subsidiaries;
- the controlling shareholders and key management personnel of the Company remaining substantially unchanged;
- the ability to secure financing support as and when required: and
- the continuing support of bank and other creditors, suppliers and other parties.
The Board is of the view that the Group will be able to meet its short-term obligations as and when they fall due despite the negative working capital position as the Company continues exploring various possibilities in securing the necessary funding to discharge the Scheme and provide the Group with additional working capital.
