EPF must say no to Petronas
QUESTION TIME As a long-term investor, the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) should reject Petroliam Nasional Bhd’s (Petronas) offer to buy the shares it does not own in listed shipper MISC Bhd for RM5.30 per share because it considerably undervalues MISC.
Otherwise, EPF, which is the retirement savings repository for over 12 million Malaysian workers and which manages close to RM500 billion of funds, could well lose a golden opportunity to stay invested in what may be one of the most undervalued blue chips on the Malaysian market.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
