Malaysia: Shares close higher on Wednesday, Stocks - THE BUSINESS TIMES

INVESTORS fled from Axiata Group Bhd and DiGi.Com Bhd yesterday after their proposed merger to create the country’s largest telecommunications company (telco) fell through last week, erasing RM9.2 billion in combined market capitalisation. Shares of Axiata dropped as much as 18% to as low as RM4.01 before recovering at 4.11 and about RM7.03 billion in market value vanished as investors took flight after the company and Telenor ASA called off talks for a merger of their Asian operations. Axiata closed 15.8% lower yesterday, the biggest move since the telco’s initial public offering (IPO) in 2008 and almost 30 times the benchmark FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI (FBM KLCI), according to Bloomberg data. Digi, which is 49%-controlled by Telenor, fell 5.9% to close yesterday’s trading at RM4.60, the most in about nine years and 11 times the FBM KLCI.
