UNITED Global is buying 95 per cent of related lubricant maker PT Pacific Lubritama Indonesia for S$18.24 million in cash and stock.

The sellers of Pacific Lubritama are family members of United Global's controlling Wiranto family.

The new United Global shares are valued at 30 Singapore cents apiece, which is a 1.6 per cent discount to the stock's 30.5 Singapore cent volume-weighted average price on May 5, which was the last full day of trading before the deal was signed.
