2. ENTRY OF NEW MAJOR SHAREHOLDER (10.2% STAKE) - LIM

VALUE TO SHAREHOLDERS
Refer below notice of entry of substantial shareholder on 11 August 2020 where the price of the stock had surged to 58c year high. Mr Lim Shiou Gay, who is currently Director of ACME Berhad (Stock Code 7131, Main Market, Property Sector), had bought a substantial stake of 23.4 million shares (10.2%) in SMTRACK.
Since he entered SMTRACK thru Private Placement, therefore under normal circumstances, this would signal him as a friendly party to the existing management. Therefore, it would be interesting to find out in the near future, what SMTRACK has planned to improve and expand its business with the addition of this new major shareholder.
