KUALA LUMPUR: S P Setia Bhd subsidiary Setia (Hangzhou) Development Company Limited and its joint venture (JV) partner, Hangzhou Ju Shen Construction Engineering Limited have agreed to extend the precedent conditions fulfillment period set out in the JV contract between the two parties, by six months.

The extension period will expire on Oct 27, 2010, the property developer announced in a Bursa Malaysia listing on Monday, May 3.

The JV contract is conditional upon the approval from the People’s Republic of China Ministry of Commerce (or the relevant approving authority) for the JV contract to be obtained within six months from the date of the said contract.
