Tan Sri Vincent Denied Sale Talks For U Mobile

Tan Sri Vincent Tan shareholder of Berjaya Corporation Berhad has denied market talks to sell U Mobile Sdn Bhd. Tan Sri holds 6.2% stake in U Mobile. Responding to market talk about a possible sale, Tan said he and other shareholders planned to keep the company for the long term. "If you buy something for MYR 300, and after three to five years it is worth MYR 600, MYR 700 or MYR 900, you have to think carefully and seriously consider to sell. If you make money why not? That is business," said Tan. We are not profitable currently but we are going to do well. We are still investing in the business. With more spectrum we can cover a bigger area and be more competitive, he added.
