Increasing Capital

Status                                   : Canceled
Reason                                   :
Due to the current economic situation which is slowing down and the uncertainty 
and worry of the Covid-19 that has occurred both in Thailand and around the
world, which has a severe impact on the stock market dropped more than 300
points during the past 2 weeks and continuously affect the price of the
company's shares. The stock market fluctuates unpredictably and there is no
clear trend when the said condition will be ended. The Board of Directors
therefore considered and agreed to cancel the resolutions regarding capital
increase, the issuance and offer for sale of the Company's newly increased
ordinary shares, the waiver from mandatory tender offer by using the resolution
of shareholders' meeting (Whitewash), and the entering into transaction with a
connected person.
In this regards, the Company will use other sources of fund such as loans from 
bank and debentures as working capital for the automobile hire purchase business
to substitute the proceeds received from the capital increase of approximately
Baht 2,345 million. This cancellation of capital increase does not affect the
company's operations. The company will consider capital increase again once the
capital markets situation is more conducive.
