KUALA LUMPUR: Glomac Bhd 's unit  Glomac Alliance Sdn Bhd (GASB) has received an amended writ and amendement statement of claim from  Score Option Sdn Bhd totalling RM154.80mil.

The property company said on Thursday the suit was based on the joint venture agreement dated 17 January 2003 between Score Option Sdn Bhd and GASB. 

“Score Option Sdn Bhd is claiming for a compensation sum of RM107.80mil for the loss of land; an unspecified amount of loss of expenses of the project; and 2% of GDV of the project or a minimum of RM47mil whichever the higher,”  it said.
