Hyflux said on Wednesday that Singapore Exchange Securities Trading, or SGX-ST, granted the company another extension through 30 June to file its financial statements for the second and third quarters of 2018 and for the fully year.

For the reasons it sought an extension, Hyflux pointed to the court-ordered moratorium on the payment of its debts and the negotiations with stakeholders over the terms of its restructuring.

“Given the pace and evolving nature of the negotiations, the release of financial statements of the company prior to in-principle agreement
of the main terms of the reorganization or prior to clarity being obtained on the main terms of any financing proposals to be put forth as part of reorganization, may potentially result in inaccurate and incomplete reflection of financial information,” Hyflux said in a filing to SGX late on Wednesday.
