Premier says deal to take over majority shares in a bank to be formalised on July 19
BY JUDE TOYAT ON JULY 5, 2024, FRIDAY AT 6:00 PM

KUCHING (July 5): Sarawak Premier Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg has hinted at an official signing ceremony to acquire a majority stake in a bank, most likely to be the long-speculated Affin Bank, this July 19.
While he did not specifically name the bank, Abang Johari said that Sarawak is set to take over a major financial block, positioning itself as a dominant player in Malaysia’s banking industry.

“There is no more secrecy. By then, we will officially sign to take over this major block, which includes substantial shares, soon, July 19,” he said in a press conference during the Amanah Saham Sarawak (Assar) dividend announcement at Hikmah Exchange Event Centre here today.

Abang Johari noted that this acquisition symbolises Sarawak reclaiming its former assets.
“We once lost what we had, and now we are taking it back. Previously, we had six banks taken from us, and now we are reclaiming them. Now we even have our own bank.

“The bank we are acquiring is bigger than those six banks, and we aim to become a dominant player in Malaysia’s banking business.

“Sarawak will play a crucial role, God willing, and this is reflected in our investment portfolio, which aims to boost Sarawak’s economy significantly,” he said.

Defense Minister is asking for a higher price from Sarawak of RM2.60 per share or else there's no approval. Those LTAT people who negotiated a price of RM2.40 have since resigned.

RULE 9 ANNOUNCEMENT AND NOTICES

9.05 Announcements to be made by the offeror or potential offeror

(1) Before the board of the offeree is approached, the responsibility for making an announcement will normally rest with the offeror or potential offeror.

(2) The offeror or potential offeror should keep a close watch on the offeree share price and volume for signs of undue movement and must make an announcement–

(a) when, before the board of the offeree is approached, the offeree is the subject of rumour or speculation about a possible offer, or there is undue movement in its share price or a significant increase in the volume of share turnover, and there are reasonable grounds for concluding that it is the offeror or potential offeror’s actions which have directly contributed to the situation;

(b) where negotiations or discussions are about to be extended to include more than a very restricted number of people (outside those who need to know or are involved at that stage of the discussion and their immediate advisers) ;

(c) upon the signing of the sale and purchase agreement for the voting shares or voting rights of the offeree which will lead to the acquirer being obliged to extend a mandatory offer obligation.


9.07 Possible offer announcement (1) When an announcement is required to be made pursuant to subparagraphs 9.05(2) and 9.06(2)(b) to (d), but the intention to make an offer is premature or have not been firmed up, the offeror, potential offeror or offeree is required to make a brief announcement that negotiations are taking place

RULE 3 ADVISERS

3.01 An adviser must comply with all requirements under the Code and the Rules, and ensure that it explains to its client and its directors, their respective responsibilities under these Rules and the Code and use all reasonable effort to ensure that the client and its directors comply with these Rules and the Code. In cases of doubt, the SC must be consulted.

Affin Bank was a drag and a laggard in the banking scene despite with LTAT {Boustead} helming the ship. With a change in the ownership structure maybe Affin can now reinvent and grow it's business presence. Affin started off as Perwira Affin Bank in 2000 and later merge it's operation with BSN commercial. For better or worse time to see a new structural in their business direction

Why goreng so kuat? Hahaha. Sarawak government is dealing directly with LTAT, right? Let's say the selling price to Sarawak government is RM 2.60 per share, outside people buying above RM 2.60 and above. What's the point? I can't get it. Sarawak government is not buying from the public. Anyone care to enlighten me? Thanks.

Congrats Affinians!


However,

Since January, 9 Investment Banks have researched Affin Bank. All 9 banks have given a SELL target price, yet Affin continues to climb due to the Sarawak intention to buy. In my opinion this is an unhealthy hype that will drop sharply after the purchase is finalised.

Contrary to certain views. Most anaylst{s} believed and expect banking stocks to drive the KLCI I 2024. Banking stocks constitute 20% of the KLCi index. In addition foreign funds looking to invest in the market are most likely to make a go in this sector. Banks have displayed resilience and achieved solid earnings in the recent qtr earning result. Not a buy call but repost a review by Kenny Yee of Rakutrade. Another senior equity analyst concurred with his views and cited renewed optimism on the market. Please do your own research before you buy or invest

KUALA LUMPUR: The deal to increase the Sarawak Government's shareholding from the Armed Forces Fund Board (LTAT), which is the largest shareholder of Affin Bank, is expected to be fully finalised within a month.

The Premier of Sarawak, Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri (Dr) Abang Abdul Rahman Zohari Tun Datuk Abang Openg said that the process of increasing the block of shares in the bank to about 30 from the current 4.8 percent is currently awaiting final approval from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM).

According to him, BNM had previously given approval involving the acquisition of additional shares in Affin Bank by the Sarawak Government from LTAT on 12 June.

"However, at this time there are three 'minor' matters that need to be finalised in order to proceed with this share purchase agreement after obtaining the necessary regulatory approval," he said.

He said this in a joint press conference with UKAS and TVS after witnessing the signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Sarawak Government and LTAT at the Menara Affin Auditorium here on Friday.

In the event, the Premier of Sarawak witnessed the signing of the MoU between the Sarawak Financial Secretary, Dato Sri Dr. Wan Lizozman Wan Omar and Chief Executive of LTAT, Mohammad Ashraf Md Radzi.

Speaking at the same press conference, the Premier of Sarawak said, the Sarawak Government will not interfere in any control over the operation of Affin Bank after the matter is fully finalized later.

He insisted that the state government has no interest or any form of involvement in the management or administration of Affin Bank.

"When we have a shareholding, of course we have a representative on the Board of Directors of Affin Bank and our representative will make recommendations, we (the Sarawak Government) will not interfere.

"Any business decision made by Affin Bank is entirely the responsibility of the Board of Directors and the bank's management," he said.

Affin banking group has a total of 115 bank offices operating in Malaysia. Out of the 115 only 4 branch office`s in Sabah plus another 4 in Sarawak. Tremendous scope for Affin to expand is reach in the 2 Borneo states. Sarawak and Sabah once was dominant in their own turf having household names like Hock Hua Bank, Bank Utama, Wah Tat Bank, Miri commercial bank, Bian Chiang bank, Kwong Lee Bank and Kong Min Bank. Even UOB {Founder Wee} started his initial banking group in Sarawak. Sarawak is a rich state but through the bank consolidation and merger. The land of the hornbills has lost all the above regional banks
