Hibiscus, Ho Hup take the LIMELIGHT


Oldie but goldie.

Dateline 2013-10-14, Malaysia Chronicle:

Hibiscus Petroleum Bhd and Ho Hup Construction Co Bhd seem to be getting more than their fair share of interest from the stock-buying public.

Hibiscus, which counts billionaires Tan Sri Quek Leng Chan and Tan Sri A.P. Arumugam as its shareholders, is seen to be slowly moving away from operating as a special purpose acquisition
company (SPAC).

Hibiscus was the country’s first SPAC to be listed on the stock exchange, but ironically some of its recent moves seem to suggest the company plans to aquire quantifiable assets to back up its resume.

This can be seen from its move to acquire Newfield Exploration Co’s oil and gas assets in Malaysia and China.
