The agreement allows both parties to explore potential business cooperation / collaboration opportunities: “Which include, but are not limited to, joint venture, business partnership and/ or acquisition of equity stake between the parties to further expand their business operations and geographical coverage”.
According to Straits, Banle recorded net profit of $365,238 for its past financial year ending 31 July, 2017. The company’s net assets stood at $1.10 million in the similar period.
Manifold Times earlier reported Straits planning a private fund raising move to raise up to approximately $3.43 million.
