According to the investigation of “Kaohoon Online”, CHAYO had stated this following sentence in the letter submitted to SET on March 18, 2019m regarding the issuance and offering of the company’s newly issued ordinary shares by way of private placement under general mandate.
“For the purpose of this offering of the newly issued ordinary shares to the specific investors, in order to provide an assurance to the company and its retail shareholders, all specific investors agree no to sell the newly issued ordinary shares allocated on this occasion for six months from the date on which the company’s shares start trading on the Stock Exchange of Thailand (Silent Period) on the voluntary lock-up basis.”
However, there is no indication whether the aforementioned is considered a silent period or just an agreement between purchasers and CHAYO.
