KUALA LUMPUR (July 17): Green Packet Bhd today announced the proposed acquisition of a 100% stake in Mobiduu Solutions Sdn Bhd for RM4 million.
The sellers of the mobile payments solution provider are two individuals, Rashad Khaleel Mousa Bdeiri and Suhaima Abd Hamid.
In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, Green Packat said the acquisition will be undertaken by its wholly-owned subsidiary Packet Interactive Sdn Bhd.

The company said Mobiduu has developed a proven and ready e-services and loyalty platform to launch Green Packet’s mobile payment services.
