Following the completion of the transaction, BJJS, which was primarily in the business of property development, will no longer be a subsidiary of GuocoLand.

BJJS, as a subsidiary of GuocoLand, had completed and sold all of the units in its residential project, West End Point in Beijing. It still owns residual assets in the said residential project and has been inactive.

The transaction is not expected to have any material impact on the consolidated net tangible assets and earnings per share of the GuocoLand Group for the financial year ending June 30.

Shares in GuocoLand closed flat at $1.71 on April 15.
