E.LAND Co., Ltd. Key Developments

E-Land To Delay Listing Of Retail Unit

E.LAND Co., Ltd. has decided to push back its plan to take a retail unit public, as the local bourse operator remains reluctant to let the financially strapped company raise money on the capital market. 'We had initially planned to list E-Land Retail on the local bourse in the first half of this year. But given unfavorable market conditions, we decided to delay the IPO plan by one year,' an E-Land Group official said. E-Land Park, an affiliate of E-Land Retail, has become a liability ever since it came under criticism for not paying part-time workers. So we opted to first separate E-Land Park from E-Land Retail and start the IPO process over again.'

E-Land Not To List Chinese Arm

E.LAND Co., Ltd. plans for pre-IPO placement for E- Land Fashion China Holdings Limited has fallen apart over its plans to sell off the brand Teenie Weenie. Although E-Land hopes to raise about KRW 2 trillion from the sale of Teenie Weenie, general partners who had been working on the pre-IPO have called off negotiations.

E-Land Co. Ltd. Seeking To Sell Kim's Club.

E-land Group, a South Korean fashion giant will sell Kim's Club Mart, its supermarket chain operator, through open bidding. A US private equity giant Kohlberg Kravis Roberts is the successful bidder for South Korean hypermarket chain Kim’s Club. E-Land and KKR plan to conduct due diligence and set the selling price before signing a final contract in early May. Some speculated the group might try to sell only part of Kim's Club to the buyout firm and repurchase it later.
