KUALA LUMPUR, April 9 (Bernama) -- Meridian Bhd has been classified as a Practice Note 17 (PN17) company as it has triggered the PN17 criteria of the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia.

"The PN17 criteria is triggered as the auditors have expressed a disclaimer of opinion in the company’s audited financial statements for the financial period ended Nov 30, 2023, which was announced on April 5, 2024," the property developer said in a filing with Bursa Malaysia on Monday.

In a separate exchange filing on Monday, Meridian’s external auditors, Jamal, Amin & Partners had expressed a disclaimer of opinion in the company’s annual audited financial statements for the financial period from July 1, 2022, to Nov 30, 2023.

"Because of the significance of the matters described in the basis for disclaimer of opinion section of our report, we have not been able to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence to provide a basis for an audit opinion on these financial statements,” said the auditors.

Following the admission into PN17 territory, Meridian said it is looking into formulating a regularisation plan to address its PN17 status.

Meanwhile, Bursa Malaysia said in a separate statement today that it will continue to monitor the progress of Meridian in respect of its compliance with the Main Market listing requirements.

According to Bursa Malaysia’s website, Meridian is the latest admission into the list of 25 PN17 companies.
