Mutiara's unit in RM38 m property disposal

KUALA LUMPUR: MUTIARA GOODYEAR DEVELOPMENT Bhd announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Potensi Naga Sdn Bhd (PNSB), has entered into a sale and purchase agreement (SPA) with Prosper Palm Oil Mill Sdn Bhd (PPOM) to dispose a property for RM38 million cash.

The company said on Friday, July 30 that the property involved a 13-storey office building together with 230 car park bays in Kelana Centre Point, Petaling Jaya.

The group said the property was acquired by PNSB on May 15, 1999 for a consideration of RM31.9 million, adding that it was a leasehold property with the lease expiring on Jan 23, 2094.

"The property is currently leased to a mixed group of tenants for office use and has a tenancy rate of 77%," said Mutiara, adding that the approximate age of the property is 11 years.

It noted the fair book value of the property based on PNSB’s latest audited financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2009 was RM32 million.

Mutiara said the the disposal represented an opportunity for the Mutiara Group to unlock the value of assets that did not contribute towards its core business of property development.

It added that the disposal would also free the group from future holding and maintenance costs of the property.

The proceeds from the disposal would provide future cashflow for the group’s working capital purposes, reduce its borrowings and/or contribute towards expansion of its core business.
