The is worrying me because if IGB is going to take off all the cash reserve to paid the loan of RM 1,256,267,000 next year and there still lack RM 175,384,000 (base on the cash reserve in 30-6-2015). However they can have another loan or issue share place which will dilute the IGB shares.

  • RM 1,256,267,000 (78.9% of the total loan during in 5 year time) is going to be due in 2016.
  • IGB cash reserve is insufficient to pay the RM 1,256,267,000 loan in 2016.
