UOA REIT will be financing RM278mil of the purchase consideration via private placement and RM352mil of the building’s price tag via its RM422mil five-year revolving credit facility.

Yinson’s net profit for the second quarter ended July 31, 2020 jumped 144% to RM100.36 million, from RM41.14mil a year ago.

The higher earnings were due to a greater contribution from the group’s engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commission (EPCIC) segment. The group declared an interim dividend of four sen per share.

Key Alliance's subsidiary, Agrocloud Sdn Bhd, has entered into a joint-venture with Rimbun Daun Ventures (RDV) and Fortifoods Sdn Bhd to develop Rice Information Management System (RIMS), an integrated rice production management platform.

Solution Group's subsidiary Solution Biologics Sdn Bhd (SOLBIO) has forged a partnership with China-based CanSino Biologics Inc (CanSinoBIO) to market and distribute a coronavirus vaccine in Malaysia.

The vaccine, Adenovirus Type 5 Vector, will be registered after completing a Phase 3 clinical trial with Malaysia’s National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA).

Nationwide Express’ independent auditors have flagged its ability to continue as a going concern.

Meanwhile, US markets advanced overnight ahead of the first presidential debate while the Democrats are proposing a US$2.2 trillion stimulus package.

Earlier, European stocks climbed following optimism in China's economic recovery and positive export data.

“Following the positive performances in the US and Europe, the FBM KLCI could extend its rebound towards the resistance of 1,550 points,” JF Apex said.
