KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 4): Lembaga Tabung Haji has ceased to be a substantial shareholder in aquaculture company Borneo Aqua Harvest Bhd.

After the disposal, Tabung Haji now holds some 19.59 million Borneo Aqua shares, or a 4.6% stake, in the company.

In November last year, Borneo Aqua had announced plans to diversify into the exploration for minerals and mining business, with the proposed acquisition of the entire equity stake in Wullersdorf Resources Sdn Bhd for RM131 million.

Borneo Aqua shares closed down two sen or 1.74 % at RM1.13 today, with a market capitalisation of RM484.78 million.
