A Bhd Question
« on: November 24, 2006, 04:39:47 PM »
Guys...
I just learnt this from a fren...

"All listed companies are Berhad, but not all Berhad are listed companies"

Never knew this... Any examples of Bhd companies that are not listed??

There are a lot of Berhad companies not listed..
Example.. Kuok Foundation Berhad... It actually a company belongs to Robert Kuok.
Some of them is child company of  a bigger companies..
Another example is whenever a listed company is delisted... They still remain as Berhad.. Samporna Berhad (not sure the spelling).. If I'm not mistaken Southern Bank Berhad is still a berhad, and not a sendirian berhad..

So there's no difference between a private Berhad and a Sdn. Bhd.?  ???

Well... If I'm not mistaken, a Berhad still can sell their shares to the public... while Sdn. Bhd, can't sell their share to public.. Why many Berhad wants to get listed is because they offer liquidity and a way to market their shares (IPOs) to increase capital.. The stock market is like a centralized market where people can sell and buy their shares with ease.. If the company don't list themselves, they won't able to sell the share owner won't able to sell their shares with ease..

Btw, another two vey popular Berhad companies which is not listed... Permodalan Nasional Berhad and Khazanah Nasional Berhad...
