Quick Take: Benalec rises 5.5% on assets disposal move

KUALA LUMPUR: Shares of Benalec Holdings Bhd rose 5.5% this morning, after the group said it planned to dispose of two of its sand carrier vessels for RM15.8mil.

The marine construction services group gained 5.56%, or one sen to 19 sen with 1.78 million shares traded. 

Benalec said it planned to dispose of two of its sand carrier vessels for US$3.82mil (RM15.82mil) to improve its cash flow amid the softening of the domestic and regional

maritime industry.
