The FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI Index rose 6.36 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,400.05, the highest close since Sept. 21. The gauge climbed 0.9 percent this week, its second weekly gain.

CIMB Group Holdings Bhd. (CIMB MK), a Malaysian banking group, advanced 0.7 percent to 7.11 ringgit. The bank said it’s in talks with San Miguel Corp.

KNM Group Bhd. (KNMG MK), an oil and gas services provider, slid 2.4 percent to 1.23 ringgit. The share-price estimate was reduced to 1.72 ringgit from 2.25 at ECM Libra Capital Sdn. to reflect a change in its valuation methodology.
