The sale is expected to result in an RM20.26mil net gain to the group and the disposal consideration will be used to pare down borrowings and or working capital.
TH Heavy Engineering won a US$11.4mil (RM47.4mil) contract from Afcons Infrastructure Ltd of India for an offshore process platform project (CPP & LQUP) for the development of KG-DWN-98/2 NEP Block offshore India.
Berjaya Food registered a net profit of RM4.05mil for the three-month period ended April 30, 2019, from RM837,000 last year on the back of higher Starbucks revenue and lower finance costs.
YTL Corp has announced a plan to delist its property development arm, YTL Land, through a conditional share exchange.
The conglomerate said it intends to acquire all remaining shares it did not own in YTL Land at 36 sen each through the issuance of new YTL Corp shares at RM1.14 each.
Meanwhile, US markets rose overnight, led by energy counters following higher oil prices.
Similarly, European stocks advanced with gains from telecommunication counters following Germany's 5G auction and an attack on oil tankers in Oman lifted oil prices.
