Axiata’s 63%-owned subsidiary edotco Malaysia Sdn Bhd is acquiring the entire stake of Touch Group Holdings Bhd’s subsidiary Touch Mindscape Sdn Bhd for RM1.7bil on a debt-free and cash-free basis.

Tenaga Nasional has divested its 100% stake in TNB Power Daharki Ltd, which owns a gas turbine power plant in Pakistan, for US$54.5 million (RM229.58mil).

It said the divestment, right after the divestment of TNB’s compulsorily convertible debentures in India last August, marks another significant step in the utility group's strategy to streamline its international portfolio by prioritising growth of renewable energy in its focus markets such as the UK, the rest of Europe, and Southeast Asia.

Berjaya Land has formed a joint venture with Menteri Besar Inc Selangor’s subsidiary Landasan Lumayan Sdn Bhd (LLSB) to undertake river cleaning, river rehabilitation and river developments in the Klang Valley.

Among the river initiatives which LLB will undertake is the Selangor Maritime Gateway, a high economic impact project which will see approximately 600 acres of land along about 56 km of the Klang River to be developed over the next eight years.

RHB Bank, FGV, JAKS Resources, Mah Sing, Wellcall, Kelington chalked up better y-o-y quarterly earnings while CIMB, Ekovest, OSK Holdings, Tropicana, SCIB recorded weaker y-o-y quarterly results.
