KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 6): Here is a brief recap of some corporate announcements that made the news on Friday (Jan 6) involving Berjaya Corp Bhd, Allianz Malaysia Bhd, Comintel Corporation Bhd, Revenue Group Bhd, Pan Malaysia Holdings Bhd, Yong Tai Bhd, Classita Holdings Bhd, Bintai Kinden Corp Bhd, Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd, CSH Alliance Bhd, Star Media Group Bhd and Top Glove Corporation Bhd.

Berjaya Corp Bhd (BCorp) chairman Tan Sri Vincent Tan Chee Yioun has divested 40 million shares or a 0.7% stake in the group to his son-in-law and Naza Group deputy group executive chairman SM Faliq SM Nasimuddin for RM10 million or 25 sen per share. Subsequent to the divestment, Vincent Tan is left with a 25.33% stake in BCorp. The divestment seems to be part of a bid for the billionaire to pare down his shareholding in BCorp and pave the way for the group’s potential acquisition of a financial institution. The Berjaya group founder is aiming to reduce his shareholding to 19.6% to comply with the Financial Services Act 2013, should the acquisition materialise.

Allianz Malaysia Bhd announced an interim dividend of 69 sen per share for the financial year ended Dec 31, 2022, with a Jan 25 ex-date and Feb 17 payment date. The total dividend for FY2022 is 85 sen — its highest dividend payout on record.

Comintel Corporation Bhd’s shareholders have rejected JT Conglomerate Sdn Bhd’s mandatory takeover offer to acquire the remaining 166.44 million Comintel shares (43.51% stake) worth 15 sen per share. JT Conglomerate’s shares remained at 56.49% as of the closing date at 5pm Friday.

Revenue Group Bhd’s suspended executive director Dino Ng Shih Fang has continued to sell down warrants, leaving him with only 1.75% or 2.74 million of the total warrants issued in the company. From Jan 3 to Jan 5, Ng had disposed a total of 20.54 million or 13.12% of total issued warrants at prices between seven sen and 15.84 sen a piece, valued at some RM2.32 million in total.

Yong Tai Bhd’s newly incorporated and wholly-owned subsidiary, YTB Lifestyle Mall Sdn Bhd, has entered into a sale and purchase agreement with Admiral City Sdn Bhd to acquire a piece of leasehold land measuring 57,171 square meters in Melaka for RM41.69 million. Separately, Yong Tai announced it has mutually agreed to terminate the collaboration agreement with Opustique Infinity Ltd, Cheng Ho International Trade Centre, Culture City Centre Sdn Bhd and Oriental Impression City Development Sdn Bhd with immediate effect, due to the parties being unable to complete the terms of the proposed collaboration.

The corporate exercise will involve the issuance of up to 965.4 million rights shares and up to 579.24 million warrants, whose exercise price is fixed at 20 sen each.

Bintai Kinden Corp Bhd has proposed to undertake a private placement of up to 10% of its total issued shares to third-party investors to be identified later, at an issue price to be determined later, with expectations to raise up to RM7.44 million.
