Qatar Investment Authority Key Developments
Aljomaih And Qatar Investment Reportedly In Talks To Acquire Stake In Edra
Jun 17 15
Aljomaih Holding Company and Qatar Investment Authority are known to be in discussions to acquire about 49% stake in Edra Global Energy Bhd, a wholly owned unit of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), sources said. The stake sale is known to be part of a prelude to a possible flotation exercise on Bursa Malaysia. “Earlier indications were that the listing (of Edra) was off, but there seems to have been a revival of the plan to float Edra's shares on the local bourse. The logic is that if 1MDB were to sell the power generation assets now, it (1MDB) would get a fire-sale price as everyone knows the pressure it is under. On the other hand, if some cash was obtained — like from selling just 49% — merely to settle some of the more pressing loans, after which 1MDB would then renegotiate the remaining debt commitments, 1MDB may be able to still hold on to control of Edra while solving its problems," the source explains. At present, several parties such as IJM Corporation Berhad (KLSE:IJM), Tenaga Nasional Berhad (KLSE:TENAGA), Sembcorp Industries Ltd (SGX:U96), ACWA Power International and San Miguel Corporation (PSE:SMC) are known to have expressed interest in Edra. "These assets under Edra are national assets. 1MDB is a GLC (government-linked company) so there is a need to be prudent and not just sell the assets quickly, sweep all the problems under the carpet - there is a need to get the best value from the sale," the source adds. The enterprise value of Edra is in the region of MYR 16 billion to MYR 18 billion. News reports have the value of Edra based on the sale to the interested parties pegged at around MYR 15 billion.

Qatar Investment Authority has officially denied that it planned to spend $800 million acquiring a Hanoi skyscraper that is the tallest in Vietnam. The Qatar Investment Authority “has not attempted to buy the [Keangnam] Landmark 72 Tower,” a spokesperson of Qatar Investment said. The South Korean newspaper cited “investment bankers and news reports” for its report. But the Qatar Investment Authority spokesperson said such a report is false and Qatar Investment denies all of other similar ones.

May 15 15
Qatar Investment Authority is in talks to acquire Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower in Viet Nam for $800 million. The building was put on the market earlier this year. The company has gained exclusive rights for the ensuing negotiations. The company notified Colliers International, who is managing the skyscraper sale, that it will accept the $800 million appraisal price granted by a South Korean court. The company initially offered $600 million but eventually decided to raise the price in accordance with the ruling.
