KUALA LUMPUR, 17 May 2019 – HPMT Holdings Berhad (“HPMT”), in conjunction with its listing on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (“Bursa Malaysia”), launched its prospectus today at the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel. The launch is in conjunction with HPMT’s initial public offering (“IPO”) of 116.6 million HPMT shares with an issue/offer price of RM0.56 per share. Upon listing on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia, HPMT’s market capitalisation is estimated to be RM184.0 million.
The 116.6 million HPMT shares will be apportioned in the following manner:

• 8.3 million shares to HPMT eligible directors and employees
• 59.0 million shares to institutional and selected investors
