NoonTalk is looking to seek its shareholders’ approval for the adoption of a share purchase mandate of up to 10% of the company’s issued and paid-up shares at an extraordinary general meeting (EGM).

The EGM will be held on Oct 23 at 11am.

According to the company, the mandate will give it “greater flexibility” in managing its capital and maximising returns to its shareholders.

“The share purchase mandate will facilitate the return of excess cash and surplus funds to shareholders in an expedient, effective and cost-efficient manner,” says the company in its EGM circular dated Oct 6.

The share purchases also seek to enhance the company’s return on equity (ROE), adds the company.

“Shareholders should note that share purchases will be made only if the directors believe it can benefit the company and its shareholders. If and when circumstances permit, the directors will decide whether to effect such share purchases via on-market share purchases or off-market share purchases after taking into account the amount of cash available, the prevailing market conditions and the most cost-effective and efficient approach,” says NoonTalk via its circular.

“No share purchases will be made in circumstances which would have or may have a material adverse effect on the liquidity and capital adequacy position of the company and/or affect the listing status of the company,” it adds.

In the case of an on-market share purchase, the company may pay for up to 105% of the shares’ average closing price and up to 120% of the average closing price if the purchase is conducted off the market. The average closing price refers to the average of the closing market prices of a share over the last five market days recorded on the Singapore Exchange S68 -

Securities Trading Limited (SGX-ST).

As at Oct 6, about 66.9 million shares – or 33.8% – of NoonTalk’s total issued share capital are held in the hands of the public.

Net cash generated from financing activities stood at $894,703 in its audited results, down from the $3.4 million reported in its unaudited results.

Shares in NoonTalk closed flat at 9.8 cents on Oct 6.
