THE firm is in preliminary discussions with unrelated parties about a potential joint venture and a separate disposal transaction, it said in its reply to the Singapore Exchange (SGX), which issued a trading query on Monday.
The company said that it will make the relevant disclosures at the appropriate time, in compliance with Catalist rules.
THE group has posted a 69.9 per cent year-on-year increase in net profit for the fourth quarter ended Dec 31, 2016, to US$560.8 million, led by stronger performance across all segments, as well as recognition of deferred tax assets for its Indonesian operations.
This was achieved on the back of a 26.7 per cent rise in revenue to US$11.95 billion, mainly driven by stronger commodity prices for the quarter and partly supported by higher sales volume.
