We’re excited to announce that we’re partnering with SGX for the SGX Bull Charge Stock Challenge, which will be held on our platform!
Last week was a busy week!
Our team had a humble opportunity to attend the Media Appreciation Night, organised by SGX at The Straits Clan. This event was for SGX to give back to the blogging community through a series of awards, for their hard work in keeping investment and financial knowledge demystified, free-flowing and accessible to the general public.
SGX CEO, Loh Boon Chye was also present to give out the awards! Congratulations, The Fifth Person!
Koufu Group, Singapore’s most well known food court operator on Wednesday made its debut on the Singapore Exchange’s (SGX) mainboard at S$0.65, 2 cents or 3.2 per cent up on its initial public offering price of S$0.63 according to ChannelNewsAsia.
With a market capitalisation of about S$350 million, Koufu Group Limited’s listing will boost SGX’s consumer cluster to a total of 152 listings with combined market capitalisation of more than S$135 billion.
Pang Lim, Koufu’s executive chairman and chief executive officer, said its listing was “a vote of confidence for our group and a recognition of our established track record and growth plans.”
According to ChannelNewsAsia, at the close of Koufu’s public offer at 12 noon on July 16, 3,170 valid applications were received for 107.7 million shares. Application monies received amounted to about S$67.8 million, translating to the public offer being 17 times subscribed.
Koufu was founded by executive chairman and CEO Pang Lim in 2002. His wife and executive director, Ng Hoon Tien, is a co-founder.
Their main business for the IPO is provision of F&B for food courts, coffee shops, as well as other establishments. They are also in charge of the management and operations of Punggol Plaza.

Prior to Mr Bocker’s role as SGX CEO from 2009 to 2015, he was the President of the Nasdaq Stock Market, and before that, he was the creator of OMX, the Nordic exchange. Mr Bocker held over three decades of experience in the financial industry and was often regarded as a driving force for change.
It’s official: SGX is bringing back the lunch break, after six years since 2011.
The key purpose why the break was removed back then, was a strong bid to perk the market and raise trading volumes. However, brokers admitted that removing the lunch break was not very effective.
