China Everbright Water’s wholly owned subsidiary China Everbright Water Management and Haimen City Dayuan Water incorporated a joint venture called Everbright Water (Haimen) in China, the water infrastructure company said in a filing to SGX Friday.
The joint venture, which has a registered capital of 70 million yuan (S$13.59 million or US$9.84 million), will be 90 percent owned by China Everbright Water Management, the filing said.
Everbright Water (Haimen) will engage in waste-water treatment, reusable water, corporate management service and promoting waste-water treatment technologies, China Everbright Water said.
Singtel’s wholly owned subsidiary Digital Gaming Investments has incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary called Digital Games International, the telco said in a filing to SGX Friday
Digital Games International, which has a paid-up capital of S$2, will be to operate a regional game store and online community portal, the filing said.
Boustead Projects said Friday it signed a memorandum of understanding with Getronics’ Singapore unit, Getronics Solutions (S), to collaborate on offing integrated smart-building services for industrial buildings, industrial parks and integrated digital cities.
Complex building management systems often comprise multiple systems and devises which are challenging to integrate to allow them to work together, the company said in a filing to SGX. But it planned to use Getronics’ technologies to integrate multiple connected systems across a portfolio of properties, the filing said.
China Jinjiang Environment
China Jinjiang Environment said Friday that S&P Global Ratings revised its outlook on the company to positive from negative and affirmed its issuer rating of BB-minus.
That was due to state-owned Zheneng Group’s acquisition of 29.79 percent of China Jinjiang’s shares, which S&P said could lower funding costs and potentially lead to a rating upgrade, the waste-to-energy company said in a separate statement Monday.
“The positive outlook by S&P Global Ratings is a strong vote of confidence and recognition of Zheneng Group’s entry into Jinjiang Environment as the largest controlling shareholder,” Zhang Chao, executive director and CEO of China Jinjiang Environment said in the statement Monday.
“We remain committed in maintaining financial prudence in our business expansion while leveraging on our new controlling shareholder’s financial resources and credit strength to reinforce our leading position in the WTE industry,” Zhang said.
BlackRock ceased to be a substantial shareholder of Venture Corp., with its deemed interest falling to 4.98 percent from 5.16 percent after a decrease in collateral of 525,705 shares, the asset manager said in a filing to SGX Friday.

Quek will also step down from directorships and appointments at the company’s subsidiaries, but will remain a non-executive director on the board, TMG said in a filing to SGX.
TEE International said Saturday it will appoint an external third-party investigator to examine payments which weren’t disclosed to the board and/or executive committee.
