Following the committee’s decision, YKA will now make a submission to the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) for the final registration approval for listing on the SZSE ChiNext Board.

“Although listing clearance from the committee has been obtained, there is no certainty that the proposed listing will proceed as the proposed listing is still subject to final registration approval by CSRC and prevailing market conditions, so shareholders and potential investors are accordingly advised to exercise caution when dealing with the securities of the company,” Wilmar said in an SGX filing.
