Aspial and Fragrance
AF Global, a joint venture between Aspial Corp. and Fragrance Group, said on Friday it has completed the sale of all of L.C. (London).
China Jinjiang Environment
China Jinjiang Environment said on Friday that there were “material variances” between its audited and unaudited full-year results as its indirect, wholly owned subsidiary, Hangzhou Kesheng Energy Technology, retrospectively received a lower corporate tax rate.
That was due to Hangzhou Kesheng being certified as a National High-Tech Enterprise for the 2018-2020 period by Zhejiang authorities, the company said.
China Jinjiang said the change resulted in a 23.9 million yuan (S$4.8 million) decrease in income tax expense, and a corresponding increase in profit.
