PENANG, Friday, 31.1.2020 – The criminal case involving a shareholder of PBA Holdings Bhd (PBAHB) has no effect on the standing and operations of the company.
Although this shareholder is listed as the fifth “largest shareholder” in PBA Holdings Bhd, he is not a “substantial shareholder”. As at 31.12.2019, this individual holds only 1.85% of the total shareholdings of PBAHB (6,127,600 ordinary shares).

- This shareholder is NOT a director of PBAHB or any of its subsidiaries, including Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang Sdn Bhd (PBAPP).
- He is NOT represented in the Boards of PBAHB and PBAPP.
