The Proposed Disposals involve, amongst others, the proposed disposal of KPJIC Building by Puteri Nursing College Sdn Bhd ("PNCSB"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kumpulan Perubatan (Johor) Sdn Bhd, which in turn is a wholly-owned subsidiary of KPJ.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of KPJ, AmInvestment Bank Berhad, a member of AmInvestment Bank Group, wishes to announce that PNCSB had on 3 February 2009 issued a supplemental letter to the Trustee to formalise the terms and conditions of the proposed disposal by PNCSB of KPJIC Building to the Trustee ("Agreement"). PNCSB had, in the said letter, informed the Trustee that pursuant to the Existing SPA, PNCSB had notified the beneficial owner of KPJIC Building of its intention to procure the transfer of KPJIC Building directly to the Trustee as its nominee.
