Telekom Malaysia - AirAsia DRB-HICOM - RM10
AirAsia Sdn Bhd was established in 1994 and began operations on 18 November 1996. It was originally founded by a government-owned conglomerate, DRB-Hicom.

The service connected Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Jakarta, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu, Taipei and Kaohsiung.

On 2 December 2001, the heavily-indebted airline was bought by former Time Warner executive Tony Fernandes' company Tune Air Sdn Bhd for the token sum of one ringgit (about USD 0.26 at the time) with USD 11 million (MYR 40 million) worth of debts.

On 20 March 2001, DRB-Hicom made a clarification on Bursa Malaysia:

1. “DRB-Hicom Bhd is believed to be actively seeking a buyer for its 85 per cent stake in the second national air carrier Air Asia Sdn Bhd...

2. “Among those whom DRB-HIicom had held preliminary talks with are Lembaga Tabung Haji...

3. “...DRB-Hicom had also approached other potential buyers, including the Sarawak Economic Development Corporation, Angsana Vacation Sdn Bhd, and Lufthansa Air, through a local company.”
 

DRB-HICOM Jual AirAsia

Oleh: FAUZI JAAFAR

KUALA LUMPUR 6 Sept. - DRB-HICOM Bhd. (DRB-HICOM) telah melupuskan semua kepentingannya di dalam AirAsia Sdn Bhd. (AirAsia) kepada Tune Air Sdn Bhd. (Tune Air) sebagai usaha menyelaraskan perniagaannya.

DRB-HICOM di dalam satu kenyataan kepada Bursa Saham Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) berkata, pihaknya telah menandatangani perjanjian menjual 51.68 juta saham biasa bernilai RM1 sesaham pada harga RM1.00 dalam AirAsia kepada Tune Air yang akan juga menanggung 50 peratus liabiliti bersih syarikat penerbangan tempatan itu.

DRB-HICOM menguasai 99.25 peratus ekuiti di dalam AirAsia manakala bakinya pula dipegang oleh Mofaz Air.

Menurut sumber, penjualan yang tidak diketahui nilai liabiliti bersih AirAsia, dilakukan demi menyelaraskan perniagaan DRB-HICOM kepada automotif, hartanah dan perkhidmatan menggunakan kepakaran yang sedia ada di dalam kumpulan.

Selain itu, kata beliau, kurangnya kepakaran di dalam industri penerbangan memaksa DRB-HICOM menjual pegangannya di syarikat penerbangan itu yang mengalami kerugian.

"Tindakan ini sekurang-kurangnya mampu meringankan beban hutang DRB-HICOM pada masa akan datang,'' kata sumber itu lagi.

Pengerusi DRB-HICOM Tan Sri Saleh Sulong sebelum ini, pernah menyuarakan hasratnya untuk menjual AirAsia kepada pihak-pihak yang berminat.

Penjualan itu yang dijangka akan dapat diselesaikan dalam tempoh dua bulan lagi kini sedang dalam proses penilaian berhemat.

AirAsia ditubuhkan pada 16 November 1996 dan beroperasi di Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Labuan dan Langkawi.
