Mobile telecommunication network provider Axiata Group said in a Bursa Malaysia filing today notification of the successful application for the merger was received from the NBC and the MOC yesterday when the legal existence of SmartLuy ceased with the continuance of SmartLuy and Pi Pay as one entity.
“The cessation of SmartLuy will not have any material effect on the earnings or net assets of the Axiata Group for the financial year ending Dec 31, 2020.
“The cost of investment of SmartLuy is $2 million. None of the directors or major shareholders of Axiata or persons connected with them have any interest, direct or indirect, in the said cessation,” Axiata Group said.
