The Group shall be completing the acquisition of its Bangalore incorporated subsidiary, Chasen (India) Hi-Tech Logistics Services Private Limited for its Specialist Relocation business segment.

This is in anticipation of Chinese electronic manufacturers expanding their operations to meet increasing demand for consumer electronics in the Indian market.

Chasen said it is optimistic that with the Group’s proven track record and leading position in this niche logistics sector, it is well-positioned to capture a significant share of the growing specialist relocation market in the sub-continent.


Regarding the Covid-19 situation, Chasen said it has Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in place and established Business Continuity Plans (BCPs).

Most workers of the Group’s PRC subsidiaries have returned to work following the extended Chinese New Year spring break.

Relocation operations at its customers’ production plant sites to fulfil its project contractual obligations will resume pending certification by the relevant local authorities at each site.

Similarly, factory production at its contract manufacturing subsidiary is also dependent upon work resumption by its subcontractors in order to deliver the required components.

Additionally, the Group is implementing cost-cutting measures to mitigate negative impact to its business in the PRC and elsewhere, including Singapore, where the government’s recently announced budget measures would be helpful.

Note: In Nov 2019, Chasen said in its 2QFY2020 financial results announcement that it "has commenced preparation for the listing of its PRC operations on a regional stock exchange."
