Proposed Rights Issue and Proposed Increase in Authorised Share Capital
On behalf of the Company, Maybank Investment Bank Berhad (formerly known as Aseambankers Malaysia Berhad) is pleased to announce that Pelikan had on 8 December 2009, entered into an underwriting agreement with Maybank IB, RHB Investment Bank Berhad, and MIMB Investment Bank Berhad (collectively referred to as the "Underwriters") whereby the Underwriters would underwrite 58,000,000 Rights Shares or approximately 33.80% of 171,584,420 total Rights Shares.
Notwithstanding the additional 18,000,000 Rights Shares underwritten by the Underwriters, the Minimum Subscription Level for the Proposed Rights Issue of 97,579,074 Rights Shares remains unchanged. The provision of the unconditional undertakings from some shareholders of the Company to subscribe for the Rights Shares totalling 33.56% ("Shareholders' Undertakings") and the conditional undertaking of Lembaga Tabung Haji ("LTH's Conditional Undertaking") to subscribe for the Rights Shares totalling 29.91% do not form part of the abovementioned Rights Shares to be underwritten by the Underwriters. However, the entitlement of H Partners Management LLC to the Rights Shares totalling 6.17% will be underwritten by the Underwriters.
Based on the foregoing, the Proposed Rights Issue of the Company has received approximately 97.26% support based on the unconditional Shareholders' Undertakings, LTH's Conditional Undertaking and the abovesaid underwriting arrangement.

Update on Proposals
On behalf of the Company, Maybank Investment Bank Berhad (formerly known as Aseambankers Malaysia Berhad) is pleased to announce that BaFin had on 16 November 2009 confirmed the final Offer Price for all Herlitz Shares pursuant to the Proposed Takeover Offer to be at €1.90 (RM9.60) per Herlitz Shares.
The purchase consideration for the Proposed Takeover Offer based on the final Offer Price of Euro 1.90 (RM9.60) for the 3,709,237 Herlitz Shares and assuming the 584,705 Herlitz Options are exercised into Herlitz Shares is €7,047,550 (RM35,590,128) and €1,110,940 (RM5,610,247) respectively. Nevertheless, it is reasonably remote for the 584,705 Herlitz Options to be exercised into new Herlitz Shares as the Offer Price is lower than the exercise price of €4.26 (RM21.51) per Herlitz Option.
