Envictus International Holdings

Envictus International Holdings said Wednesday it entered three separate agreements to sell thee lots of vacant industrial land located in the Selangor Halal Hub in Pulau Indah in Selangor to Malaysian logistics service provider Syarikat Logistik Petikemas for a total of 35.83 million ringgit.

“The proposed disposal is a monetization of non-core asset and represents a good opportunity to dispose of and realise the capital appreciation of the land which is currently vacant and is not being used by the group. The offer made by the purchaser was also the only available offer for the land and was close to the most recent transacted prices for vacant land in Pulau Indah,” Envictus said in a filing to SGX.

Part of the proceeds will be used to repay term loans and for working capital requirements, the company said.

Envictus International is a food and beverage company, offering trading and frozen food, including the Pok Brothers brand, food processing and dairies. The food services segment operates the Texas Chicken and San Francisco Coffee brands.
