KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 23): Greenyield Bhd today entered into a sale and purchase agreement (SPA) with Serba Sentosa Sdn Bhd to acquire a six-storey shop office in Kajang for a total cash consideration of RM5.7 million through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Gim Triple Seven Sdn Bhd.

In addition, the company said the board believes the property has potential for value appreciation given its strategic location and accessibility.
The company said that barring any unforeseen circumstances, the proposed acquisition is expected to be completed within four months from the date of the SPA.
“The proposed acquisition will not have any material effect on the earnings per share, net assets per share and gearing of Greenyield for the financial year ending July 31, 2017,” the company said.
The group said that the Board of Directors of Greenyield, after having considered the proposed acquisition, opined that it is in the company’s best interest.
