Quick take: Overseas Enterprise shares hit all-time high

KUALA LUMPUR: Shares in Oversea Enterprise Bhd rose over 21% in early trade following an unconditional mandatory takeover offer (MTO) by Anzo Holdings Bhd managing director Datuk Chai Woon Chet.

The restaurateur added 21.95%, or 13.5 sen to 75 sen, its record high with 6.3 million shares done.

The takeover offer follows Chai’s acquisition of 151.25 million shares for RM45.37mil or 30 sen apiece from four parties, resulting in 62.37% equity ownership in Oversea.

The remaining stakes were acquired from Simple Angel Capital Sdn Bhd (0.25%) and Khong Yik Kam (2.58%).

“The offeror (Chai) intends to maintain the listing status of Oversea on the Ace Market and does not intend to compulsorily acquire the remaining shares.
