The real estate group rose 2.8%, or six sen to RM2.20, making it one of the top gainers on Bursa Malaysia. In the past one year, the counter has gained over 5.7%.

Mulpha has announced a plan to sell its 4-star hotel in Cairns, Australia for A$65mil (RM187.9mil).

The company said its units in Australia have entered into a property and business asset sale agreement with JY Cairns Esplanade Hotel Pty Ltd on July 16 for the disposal of Rydges Esplanade Resort.

Rydges Esplanade Resort is a 242-room hotel.
