KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 6): Iskandar Waterfront City Bhd (IWCity)’s external auditor Messrs Ernst & Young PLT (EY) resigned as the group adhered to “good corporate governance” by revisiting the appointment of auditor from time to time.

Note that EY was only re-appointed as the group’s auditor at an annual general meeting (AGM) held on June 30, and to hold office until the conclusion of the next AGM.

IWCity, which is 35%-controlled by its executive vice chairman Tan Sri Lim Kang Hoo, said it will identify and appoint a new auditor to fill the vacancy.

Shares of IWCity closed one sen or 3.3% lower at 29.5 sen per share on Tuesday, giving it a market capitalisation of RM271.73 million.
