Permodalan Nasional Berhad Key Developments

Sime Darby's Property Arm Reported Mooted To Takeover S P Setia

A high level initiative has began for a proposal for the property arm of Sime Darby Berhad (KLSE:SIME) to take over S P Setia Berhad (KLSE:SPSETIA). About two months ago by a few senior management of S P Setia mooted the proposal and conveyed to the top brass of Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and Sime Darby. A source stated: “So far, there has been no resistance to the proposal. It is not something out of the blue as this was talked about by the dominant shareholder. This time it is coming from the key people in S P Setia. They see a need for a strong leadership in S P Setia for the greater benefit of shareholders.” PNB plans to merge all its property companies under its stable and list it. However the plan had not taken off yet although there were consultants who had worked on it quite substantially, a source said. A banker stated: “But S P setia is not part of the plan. Any corporate exercise between the two companies would need shareholders approval.” Another source said: “If PNB does decide to amalgamate all its property assets, it must find a vehicle. This should not be an issue at all. S P Setia seems to have “a better branding” than the other property companies in PNB’s stable. The most pressing problem in S P Setia is not land or sales. It is management execution and PNB’s perceived inertia.”
