Giken Sakata proposed to acquire a 51% stake of the total issued share capital in Cepu Sakti Energy for an aggregate amount of $48m.

K-Green Trust’s revenue for the quarter ended 31 March fell 1.3% to $16.8m, due to lower finance income. However, a reduction in electricity costs and trust expenses lifted net profit up 9.4% to $3.5m.

M1 registered a 1.2% decline in operating revenue to $240.2m for the quarter ended 31 Mar, due to lower handset sales, partially offset by improved service revenue.

Singapore Shipping Corporation proposed to dispose Nanyang Maritime (Singapore) to ISK Singapore for a sale consideration of $1.3m. The disposal is in view of the purchasers’ move to reform its inorganic business portfolio, given that Nanyang was primarily formed to undertake physical distribution services of the purchaser.
