We are delighted to welcome the listing of SLB Development Ltd on Catalist, a homegrown property developer with an established track record in developing quality and well-designed properties, and look forward to supporting the company as it expands internationally. SLB Development and Lian Beng recognise the distinct advantages Catalist and Mainboard bring, and we hope they will continue to tap on their respective listing platforms to grow their businesses.
