The latter relates to vibrant, self-contained and scalable ecosystems or communities, especially in the gaming industry. 

Mr Vesmond Wong, Chairman and Group CEO of DeClout, said: “The overwhelming response to the right issue exercise is a reflection and affirmation  of shareholders’ confidence in our business model and growth strategy. With a  strong mandate received from our shareholders, we will deliver growth by scaling up our IT Infrastructure Services segment while looking out for more opportunities in our VDCs segment.”

DeClout operates out of Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, United States and the PRC, and plans to extend its reach globally.
