Construction company Lian Beng Group on Tuesday said its 40%-owned associated company is looking to list on the main board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

The associated firm, United E & P, supplies construction materials and handles general construction developments.

Lian Beng said the group is in the preliminary stages on getting the listing, hence, it is unable to provide details on the projected date of the listing.

The associate firm may decide to not proceed with the listing if any factors surface to reveal that a listing would not be of interest for the firm, Lian Beng noted in the statement.

Lian Beng said an application proof of the prospectus has been uploaded in draft form on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange website as information for the Hong Kong public.

Lian Beng is listed on the mainboard of the Singapore Exchange. It is a construction group with integrated civil engineering and construction support service capabilities.
