The privatisation quagmire

Wong Muh Rong, who runs boutique corporate advisory firm Astramina Advisory Sdn Bhd says: “They (financial institutions) do not like bullet payments, they need clear sources of repayments. This is why market funding of privatisations is seeing a decline as banks see it as a risk to fund companies to privatise in the current market condition,”

MERGERS and acquisitions (M&As) are an essential and healthy part of a dynamic capital market.

In current times, when the prices of some listed companies are depressed, one would expect more privatisation exercises to take place.
