Shareholders approved a private placement of up to 65,659,400 placement shares, representing 20.0% of the Company's total number of issued shares, to raise gross proceeds of up to RM36.8 million for the diversification into the manufacturing of electric bicycles (e-bikes), general working capital and estimated expenses for the proposal.
