SINGAPORE -- Embattled Singaporean water treatment company Hyflux will go into liquidation after it failed to conclude restructuring negotiations with potential investors, putting an end to the three decade-old company that was once seen a success story for the city-state.

The judicial manager of the company on Friday filed a court application to wind up the company, according to an exchange filing, facilitating the sale of its assets.
