Kuala Lumpur, April 20: Malaysian public traded lingerie maker Caely Holdings Berhad, who is a domestic producer of women’s intimate apparel has reassured its stakeholders that it is doing all that it can to unfreeze its bank accounts in order to ensure its business sustainability and continuity.
“The unfreezing or partial unfreezing of the bank accounts are our top priority,” Caely Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer Lim Chee Pang (pictured above) said.
“We are exploring all avenues to resolve this issue, as we need to ensure that business operations can sustain.
“We are answerable to our shareholders for how the business is run.
“The Board of Directors is monitoring the situation closely too and is working with the management on the unfreezing of the bank accounts.”
“We can confirm that we are in contact with the authorities and will extend whatever cooperation or assistance is needed for the matter to be resolved,” Lim said.
The management is at this juncture still assessing the impact from the order to freeze the bank accounts.
