In October 2016, FCL’s wholly-owned subsidiary Frasers Property Holdings (Thailand) Co Ltd agreed to acquire a 40.07 percent stake in TICON for THB13.23 billion (approx. S$520 million).

Through open-market transactions in the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), the unit has purchased or intends to acquire an additional 2,100,700 shares in TICON in four tranches on 18, 19, 22 and 23 May 2017 for a total of THB27.36 million (S$1.1 million).

The consideration will be paid in cash and funded by FCL’s internal resources.

Upon completion of the acquisitions, FCL stake in TICON is expected to edge up to 40.19 percent from 40.07 percent previously.

As of 31 March 2017, TICON’s book value and net tangible asset stood at THB24.721 billion (approx. S$996.4 million) and THB24.718 billion (S$996.3 million), respectively.
