Update on Measures Taken by IMC to Contain COVID-19 (As of June 09, 2020)

As a responsible corporate organization, IMC is committed to support and comply with Government mandates, and to continue to do our part to confront this public health crisis and ensure the safety of our employees and community. The Company would like to wish all those who have been affected by COVID-19 a speedy recovery and good health, and we express our heartfelt condolences to those who have lost loved ones during this difficult time.

The safety and security of our employees and our stakeholders is paramount to IMC. With that in mind, and with the guidance and support of relevant government authorities, IMC has taken a number of measures to help prevent further spread of the virus. These include:

  • Implementing remote working and having minimum staff for manufacturing and other operations at our premises in order to maintain social distancing.
  • Enforcing avoidance of large gatherings at our premises.
  • Enforcing daily sanitization, daily body temperature screening and use of face masks for all employees.
  • Daily disinfection of the entire facility and transport vehicles.
  • Educating employees on the risks of coronavirus and proper personal hygiene measures.
  • Promoting the development and adherence to SOPs throughout the 3S Dealership network

As part of these proactive efforts, IMC conducted COVID-19 tests for a number of its employees and some of the employees tested positive. We are pleased to update that none of them are in a serious condition and all are currently isolated and quarantined. The Company remains in regular contact with the employees to support them during this difficult time.

In line with our ‘Safety First’ philosophy and in compliance with government regulations, IMC immediately suspended its manufacturing operations and temporarily closed the Company’s facilities for thorough disinfection of its premises. The Company has further decided to y test all employees at its facility. Operations are targeted to resume from 12th June 2020 after the sanitization is complete.

We will continue to work with the relevant local authorities and take preventive measures to deal with the pandemic.
