|Subject||Article entitled: DIGI surges to 21-month high on takeover talk|
The Company, after due enquiry with its Directors and major shareholders, wishes to inform that it is not aware that Maxis may acquire DiGi at a price ranging from RM5 to RM6 per share. Therefore, the Company is also not aware that Maxis will acquire Telenor’s 61 percent stake in DiGi.
We refer to the above article appearing in New Straits Time, front page, on
Thursday, 18 March 2004, a copy of which is enclosed for your reference.
In particular, we would like to draw your attention to the underlined sentence,
which is reproduced as follows:-
"Maxis may acquire DiGi at a price ranging from RM5 to RM6 per share, which is
a 15 to 38 per cent premium over its closing price."
"Maxis will acquire Telenor's 61 percent stake in DiGi and will undertake a
general offer on the remaining shares by issuing new Maxis shares."
"Australia's Telstra will subsequently acquire these new Maxis shares from DiGi
shareholders, and emerge as a key shareholder of Maxis."
