As the date of the group's annual general meeting (AGM) remains uncertain, Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) has decided to reclassify its final cash dividend of 39 sen per share to a second interim cash dividend of the same amount, to be paid on May 6, 2020.
Initially, the final cash dividend was proposed in the group’s fourth quarter 2019 results, for the approval of shareholders at the forthcoming AGM.
Xin Hwa Holdings Bhd announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Xin Hwa Trading & Transport Sdn Bhd (XHTT) has been appointed by Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd as a subcontractor of logistics services.
While the contract has no firm value as it does not constitute a commitment for volume of orders, the company expects to generate revenue of about RM2 million per annum from the three-year contract.
