Currently, TCDC has two warehouses for rent with total space of 108,800 square metres. The main customer is Unilever . “TCDC has a good performance and run the low-risk business. Apart from a gain from TCDC’s sustained income, I believe AQUA wants to control the management in order to get TCDC listed on Thai bourse in the future and gain more from additional stock value,” a stock analyst who asked not to be named said.
