1MDB to sell 60% stake in Bandar Malaysia for RM7.41bil


KUALA LUMPUR: 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) will sign a share sale and purchase agreement to sell 60% of its equity in Bandar Malaysia Sdn Bhd to a consortium for RM7.41bil, the final milestone in its rationalisation plan.

The buyer, a consortium known as IWH-CREC Sdn Bhd, is a 60:40 joint venture between Iskandar Waterfront Holding Sdn Bhd (IWH) and China Railway Engineering Corporation.

A press release issued by 1MDB before the start of the ceremony this morning said that the agreement marked the final milestone in the 1MDB rationalisation plan as presented to the Cabinet on May 29.

The agreement follows from the execution of the Binding Term Sheet with IPIC in June 2015 and the Share Sale and Purchase Agreement with CGN Group last month.

The statement said that the IWH-CREC Consortium has valued the Bandar Malaysia land situated in Sungai Besi at RM12.35bil.

"Accordingly, its 60% share will cost RM7.41bil. 1MDB will receive a 10% deposit of RM741mil upon execution of the Share Sale and Purchase Agreement, with completion of the transaction expected by end June 2016."
