INDONESIAN magnate Anthoni Salim on Tuesday (Sep 6) raised his deemed interest in mainboard-listed Gallant Venture : 5IG 0% to 73.1 per cent, after an entity linked to him purchased 397 million shares in the company.

The disclosure came after Gallant Venture soared 9.3 per cent in Tuesday’s early trade, on the back of 2 married deals – where shares were purchased at volumes of 157,000 and 240,000.

In a filing after trading hours, it was revealed that an entity called River Point Ventures had purchased 397 million shares of Gallant for S$50.02 million via off-market transactions. This translates to an average purchase price of S$0.126 per share.
