PETALING JAYA: Matrix Concepts Holdings Bhd is looking to raise up to RM147 million via a proposed placement to fund its share of equity participation in a proposed joint venture (JV) in Indonesia.
In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the group said it plans to undertake a proposed placement of up to 75 million new shares representing 10% of the total number of issued shares of the company.
Based on the illustrative issue price of RM1.96 per placement share, the company will raise up to RM147 million, which will be used to fund the equity participation in a proposed JV between Matrix Concepts, PT Bangun Kosambi Sukses (BKS) and PT Nikko Sekuritas Indonesia (NSI).
