KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 8): CAB Cakaran Corp Bhd has entered into a heads of agreement (HoA) with several parties to acquire a 51% stake in Singapore-based Tong Huat Poultry Processing Factory Pte Ltd to tap into the Singapore poultry industry.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia this afternoon, CAB said the acquisition in Singapore, “where it does not have a significant footprint”,  is “to expand its business geographically and improve its presence regionally”.

"We wish to highlight that the purchase consideration for the proposed acquisition is indicative at this juncture and may be subject to adjustments depending on the outcome of the due diligence to be conducted on the target company," it said.

The transaction would be satisfied via the issuance of 9.2 million CAB shares to the vendors at 90 sen each, and a cash payment of S$4.3 million (RM10.9 million).

CAB, via its subsidiaries, breeds and trades broiler chickens, poultry feeds and other farm consumables, processing, exporting, wholesaling and distributing and marketing of frozen marine, meat and food products.
