Khazanah Nasional Berhad announced today that it had agreed to acquire a 16.41% stake in Parkway Holdings Limited, a regional leading fully-integrated healthcare organization for a cash consideration of SGD531.51
million (RM1.23 billion).

The acquisition was made via Khazanah’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Mount Kinabalu Investments Ltd. (“MKI”), which on 29 April 2008 had entered into a Share Purchase Agreement with subsidiaries of private equity funds advised by Symphony Capital Partners Ltd, namely Microchip Holdings LDC, Cobalt Limited and Windjammer Ltd, to acquire on completion, in aggregate 126,550,438 Parkway shares (“Acquisition”).

As at the date of this announcement, MKI holds a 2.46% interest in Parkway and has agreed to acquire, through on-market purchases, a further 1.92% interest in Parkway. Upon completion of the Acquisition and settlement of the on-market purchases, MKI will become a significant shareholder of Parkway with a stake of 160,334,740 ordinary shares representing approximately 20.79% in Parkway.

“Khazanah has worked closely with Parkway and its major shareholder TPG over the last 2½ years to develop and grow the Pantai Group in Malaysia. With the acquisition of this strategic stake, we are looking forward to work more closely with Parkway as we believe that our investment in one of Asia’s leading private healthcare providers will present a strong platform for us to participate in the high growth opportunities of the broader regional healthcare sector,” added Dato’ Azman.
