Malaysia’s Khazanah plans US$400 mln IPO of theme parks
Posted on June 14, 2013, Friday
KHAZANAH Nasional Bhd, Malaysia’s state investment company, is planning to raise as much as US$400 million in an initial public offering (IPO) of its theme park business, said two people with knowledge of the matter.
Khazanah is working with Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) and Bank of America Corp on the share sale of Themed Attractions and Resorts Bhd, the people said, asking not to be named as the process is private. The Kuala Lumpur IPO may raise US$300 million to US$400 million as early as this year, they said.
Themed Attractions and Resorts, led by managing director Tunku Datuk Ahmad Burhanuddin, owns resorts including KidZania, Legoland Malaysia and Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park, which houses the first Sanrio Hello Kitty Town outside Japan.
Khazanah, wholly owned by the Malaysian government, plans to sell more domestic assets while expanding overseas, managing director Tan Sri Datuk Azman Mokhtar said in March. — Bloomberg
