Singapore’s High Court on Monday approved an application to wind up collapsed oil trading firm Hin Leong Trading Pte Ltd, marking the end of what was once one of Asia’s top oil traders, three sources familiar with the matter said.

Hin Leong, owned by Singaporean tycoon Lim Oon Kuin and his children, racked up some US$4 billion ($5.4 billion) in debt and entered court restructuring nearly a year ago.

The company had been seeking to restructure its debts after the oil price crash last year when Lim admitted in a court document to directing the firm not to disclose hundreds of millions of dollars in losses over several years.
