SINGAPORE — Catalist-listed MoneyMax Financial Services is teaming up with Tokyo-listed Aucnet to jointly develop Singapore’s first online real-time business-to-business (B2B) auction platform.
Announcing the joint venture on Friday (Sept 22) at a press conference, MoneyMax said SG e-Auction will operate and manage the platform which allows regional business buyers and sellers to make electronic bids for luxury branded merchandise, and gold and diamond goods.
“SG e-Auction will develop a new B2B auction market in Singapore, and seek to transform Singapore into a hub for used luxury branded goods in Asean,” said Mr Fujisaki Kiyotaka, representative director and president of Aucnet.
MoneyMax will own 51 per cent equity stake in SG e-Auction, while Aucnet holds the remaining 49 per cent.
Based in Singapore, the platform will bring together MoneyMax’s established network in the local market and Aucnet’s operational know-how in the B2B online auction industry.
