Second Chance is an investment holding company which operates in the retail of gold, jewellery and ready-made garments in Singapore and Malaysia.

The company says its remaining First Lady apparel store in Kuala Lumpur continues to face headwinds amid heightened competition.

Meanwhile, the gold business will generally depend on the state of the market for the commodity. Second Chance notes the next 12 months will be challenging as macroeconomic conditions remain uncertain.

It notes that a total of $18.3 million from the company's investment portfolio has been divested in the first half of FY2024, with ongoing orderly share disposals as the company complies with SGX listing rule 1020 and downsizes its investment portfolio.

In line with the company’s current strategy, it will continue to look for opportunities to dispose of its remaining investment properties.

Shares in Second Chance closed unchanged at 23 cents on March 27.
