Troubled diamond firm Afgem to be delisted on JSE end-Aug

07 august 2009

South Africa-based diamond company, Afgem says its listing on the main board of the JSE will be terminated end of this month for breaching listing requirements on the South African bourse.
The troubled firm said in a statement that its ability to continue as a going concern remained in question, after a deal to sell its assets, Simolotse, Afgem Diamonds and Bokang to Meepo Investments collapsed.
The company also noted that it had failed to pay its debts.
However, Afgem said it would continue to evaluate possibilities for the sale of its assets in an unlisted environment.
“The proceeds from such a sale will be used to pay creditors and any remaining monies will be distributed to Afgem shareholders,” it said.
Its last day to trade on the JSE would be August 21.
