The SC Approval is subject to the following conditions:

(i) DiGi to comply fully with all relevant requirements pertaining to the implementation of the Proposed Transfer as stipulated in the SC’s Guidelines on the Offering of Equity and Equity-Linked Securities;

(ii) DiGi to comply with the 30% Bumiputera equity condition imposed by the FIC vide its letter dated 12 July 2001 (“Bumiputera Equity Condition”), unless a waiver from having to comply with the said condition is obtained from the FIC; and

(iii) CIMB Investment Bank Berhad or DiGi to inform the SC upon the completion of the Proposals.

    Additionally, on behalf of DiGi, we wish to announce that the FIC has exempted DiGi from the need to comply with the Bumiputera Equity Condition in consideration of DiGi completing the Proposed Transfer by 30 June 2008. Further, the FIC has also granted an extension of time of up to 30 June 2008 for DiGi to reduce its foreign equity interest to 49%.
