KNM’s shareholders have rejected its proposed private placement of up to 987.52 million new shares or 30% of its issued share capital to raise RM167.9mil.
Sunway has teamed up with Tencent-backed Chinese fintech firm Linklogis Inc and Bangkok Bank PCL to also apply for a digital bank licence from Bank Negara.
Sapura Energy said it posted a net loss of RM97.07mil for its 1QFY22, compared with a net profit of RM14.21mil a year earlier, dragged by the unfavourable effect of the US dollar exchange rate against the ringgit and lower share of profit from associates and joint ventures.
