It received an offer from UOA Holdings, a substantial unitholder in UOA REIT, for the sale of Parcel B Menara UOA Bangsar and Wisma UOA Damansara II, priced at RM289 million and RM211 million respectively.

"The board of directors of the manager (UOA Asset Management Sdn Bhd) and OSK Trustees Bhd (trustee) will deliberate on the terms and conditions contained in the offer letters and a further announcement will be made upon completion of the deliberation," UOA REIT said in a statement to Bursa Malaysia Bhd.
