KUALA LUMPUR: The Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) has bought 22 million shares of FGV Holdings Bhd from the open market on Wednesday as it moves closer to take over the plantation company.
A filing with Bursa Malaysia showed the shares were purchased at RM1.29 each.
Yesterday, FGV closed one sen to RM1.30.
Felda had on Tuesday issued an offer document in relation to its unconditional mandatory takeover offer for all of FGV shares which it does not own, except treasury shares.
The cash offer of RM1.30 per share would be opened for acceptances until 5pm on Feb 2, unless extended or revised with an announcement to be made by Maybank Investment Bank Bhd (Maybank IB) two days prior to the closing date.
Maybank IB is the principal adviser to Felda.
According to Felda, an independent advice circular would be issued latest by Jan 22.
