SP Setia looking forward to PNB’s offer

KUALA LUMPUR: SP Setia Bhd Group is awaiting offer documents from Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) for its shareholders to decide whether to sell their shares to the country's biggest fund manager.

President and chief executive officer Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin said sentiments aside, his company was still positive on the bid to increase PNB's stake in SP Setia.

“On the positive side, the company was very proud that a national and the largest fund manager is prepared to increase its interests in SP Setia and also boost the company's value.

“If SP Setia is not good, an entity such as PNB will not come forward to invest more.“Whatever it is, we must still wait for the official offer documents to come out,” he told reporters after the launching of KL Eco City project by Federal Territories and Urban Well-Being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin yesterday.

Liew said the acquisition process was long and complicated, but the official offer documents should come soon, maybe by year-end, subject to PNB's convenience.

Asked whether he would helm the management after PNB held majority shares in SP Setia, Liew said he would if asked to.

“However, until this moment, our (SP Setia and PNB) relationship is very good,” he said.

Liew also ruled out SP Setia would convene an extraordinary general meeting to discuss the PNB takeover bid as reported in a newspaper.

“There will be no such meeting. It's all lies. It's in the shareholders' hands whether to sell or not to sell (their shares),” he added.
