Singapore, 15 December 2015 – Nexia TS is pleased to announce the successful initial public offering of Axcelasia Inc. (Axcelasia), a Malaysian-based integrated professional services firm, on SGX’s Catalist board on 27 November 2015. The offering launched at 47.52 million placement shares at S$0.25 each, comprising of 35.52 million new shares and 12 million vendor shares.
Nexia TS was appointed as the reporting accountant supporting the IPO listing.
Axcelasia is an integrated professional services firm providing tax advisory, business consulting, enterprise management system (“EMS”) applications, and business support services to government-linked entities, public listed companies and multinational corporations, mainly in Malaysia.

This short period of preparation was only made possible with the strong support from our sponsor and advisors including our Reporting Accountant Nexia TS. I would say that the strong support of Mr. Loh Ji Kin and his audit team was, without doubt, a key factor that contributed to the success of the listing. Nexia TS was very professional in its work approach and effective in executing the work plan. They worked hard and worked well with our accounting team.”
