|World's second largest IPO to go through - New York Times|
|The other "F"|
At home, a handful of people will still try and dampen the mood. That's expected, too. The Felda IPO and the benefits it will bring are big political points for Najib Razak. Politically, therefore, his enemies would want to scuttle the affair. Economically, some settlers are still not convinced and/or are suspicious. The Felda management and the MPs and Aduns in the Felda zones should work extra hard to convince these settlers and put their wayward masters at bay.
For example, the 800 units of shares allotted for each settler. We know that is not true, that the 800 units are just the chocolate covering the mountain of vanilla (think McD's Choco-Top). The settlers together own 20 per cent of the Felda shares after 28 June that will be placed and managed by an ASB-like fund. An analyst says that amounts to 7-8 lots per settler. All FOC.
