SIC Intervenes to Allow Singapore Press to Vote on Keppel, Cuscaden Peak Offers on Same Day新加坡媒体介入，允许新加坡媒体在同一天对吉宝，库斯卡登峰报价进行投票
10:38 PM EST, 12/22/2021 (MT Newswires) -- The Securities Industry Council, or SIC, has tossed aside the clause in Keppel's (SGX:BN4) offer for Singapore Press (SGX:T39) that restricted the latter to hold a scheme meeting for a competing offer within eight weeks from the date of Keppel scheme meeting.
The ruling will allow SPH to hold a shareholders' meeting to vote on offers from Keppel and Cuscaden Peak on the same day, according to a Wednesday filing.
SPH has two takeover offers on the table. Cuscaden Peak is offering to acquire all shares of Singapore Press at SG$2.40 ($1.76) apiece, while Keppel's offer is SG$2.351 per share.
