However, the provider of data centre equipment and IT products controlled by DeClout, maintained that no definitive agreement has been signed and that the possible offer is subject to due diligence, among other conditions.

In a Singapore Exchange filing before this morning’s market opening, Procurri said that due diligence checks are still being carried out by the third party and that the latter is still considering the offer and the various avenues of carrying out the possible transaction. DeClout has not identified the buyers.

The sale price represented a premium of 14.4% to the volume-weighted average price of Procurri shares of 27.97 cents traded on Thursday, the last market day on which Procurri shares were traded prior to the sale.

As at 10.33am, shares in Procurri are down 0.5 cent at 28 cents while shares in DeClout last traded at 11 cents on Jan 3.
