PETALING JAYA: Conglomerate Boustead Holdings Bhd has proposed to acquire two plots of land held by the Armed Forces Fund Board (LTAT) in Bukit Jalil for a total cash consideration of RM172.78mil.
Boustead said in a filing with Bursa Malaysia that the company had entered into a sale and purchase agreement with LTAT to acquire land measuring 10.74 acres out of 53.39 acres held under PN31560, Lot No 37825 in Mukim Petaling, Kuala Lumpur.
LTAT controls Boustead and has a 60.92% stake in the company.
The 10.74 acres consist of a parcel of vacant commercial land measuring 5.75 acres, a parcel of vacant carpark land measuring 0.96 acres and 70 parcels of vacant terraced commercial shops measuring 4.03 acres.
