In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the Japanese retail giant’s subsidiary said the proposed disposal to Foremost Wealth Management Sdn Bhd would give it an estimated gain of RM17mil for this financial year ended Dec 31.

The property has a net book value of RM67.4mil for the financial year ended Dec 31, 2016. The two-storey shopping centre building is seven years old.
