"On behalf of the Board, we wish to emphasize that the pro forma effects for the Proposed Private Placement in this section are based on the above assumption which are strictly for illustrative purposes only and should not be regarded as an indication to the fixed issue price for the Placement Shares," it said.

Proceeds from the proposed placement exercise has been earmarked for the purchase of machineries worth RM96mil for the setting up of 11 new production lines and a surgical packaging machine.

"The shortfall of approximately RM19.5mil million is expected to be funded via internally generated funds of the Group as well as funding contribution from Ansell Services (Asia) Sdn Bhd, being the joint venture partner of the Group," it said.
