TMI may sell additional stake to Khazanah

3 Nov 2008

Reuters is reporting that TM International (TMI), recently spun-off from Telekom Malaysia, is considering a stake sale to state investment vehicle Khazanah to finance an acquisition in India, citing local press reports. It is understood that the company is considering the sale in place of a loan to finance the USD1.8 billion loan it took to acquire a 19% holding in Indian cellco Idea Cellular. Khazanah already holds a 44.51% stake in TMI. Additionally, the report suggests that TMI has looked at selling a 10% stake in its Indonesian unit Excelcomindo, although it is believed that current weak market conditions have forced the sale to be reconsidered.
