NAUTICALINK BHD has signed an agreement with Business Sail (M) Sdn Bhd to sell its 600,000 RM1 shares representing 100% interest in Asia Slipway & Engineering Sdn Bhd (ASE) for RM120,000.
Asia Slipway is involved in building, repairing, cleaning, storing and providing slipway for barges, vessel and ships.
It had an audited net tangible asset (NTA) of RM129,028 and NTA per share of RM0.215 as at Dec 31, 2002.
The proposal is due to unhealthy financial condition and the impact of reduction of overdraft facility in Asia Slipway recently as it has recorded unaudited net loss of RM276,000 in the first quarter ended March 31. This proposal is expected at least to lower its gearing.
