WASTE management company 800 Super Holdings is going into the laundry business.
Announcing this in a Singapore Exchange filing on Tuesday, 800 Super Holdings said it has entered into a call and put option agreement, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Wizwash, with Fairlady Jewellers, Lee Yok Sim, Chua Yun Chean and Tan Choon Huat on Tuesday, in which an option to buy the entire shares in Iwash Laundry (Senoko) was granted.
It said that should either the call option or put option be exercised, the aggregate consideration payable for the sale shares would be S$4.999 million cash, and upon completion of the proposed acquisition, Iwash Laundry will become an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of 800 Super Holdings.
