SINGAPORE
– Media
OutReach
 – 24 December 2020 – Urban Commons (UC), the Los Angeles-based real estate investment and development firm and
Sponsor of Eagle
Hospitality Trust (EHT), will be seeking EHT to reconsider its decision to deny
the request to hold a further extraordinary general
meeting (EGM) to vote on a rights issue and a proposal to retain or reappoint
the current manager of Eagle Hospitality REIT (EH-REIT).

UC
hopes that EHT will respect the democratic process that supports unitholders’ rights.
Unitholders of a publicly listed company in Singapore are well within their
rights to requisition the Board of Directors to convene a further EGM as they
see fit.

“The whole point of an EGM is to allow unitholders
to vote on key issues that require their approval. It is the unitholders who
own shares in EHT, and they are the most appropriate persons to decide what is in
their best interests. Operational uncertainties are not grounds for rejecting a
request to call for a further EGM,” said Mr Howard Wu, Founder and Principal at
UC.


“UC’s proposal includes the elements of a
cash injection, refinancing plan, and several amicable resolutions which many
major unitholders supported. SC Capital’s proposal, on the other hand, was
chosen without considering the potential risks and implications which will not
benefit the unitholders. We strongly urge all interested parties to give us a
chance to work together to resolve the outstanding issues for the good of all unitholders,”
added
Mr Wu.

UC’s blueprint to rescue the REIT focuses
on the following steps:

1.    Refinance the defaulted debt quickly, as we already have a term sheet in
place.

2.    Raise the minimum amount to sustain the REIT and to minimise dilutions
to unitholders which we believe is lesser dilution than SC Capital’s proposal.

3.    Come up with an amicable solution to restart and sustain the operations
of the REIT.
