KUALA LUMPUR — August 26, 2015: 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) has refuted an article by the Singapore Business Times that suggested its binding agreement with Abu Dhabi’s International Petroleum Investment Co (IPIC) is as good as off.

1MDB said it was focused on the successful implementation of its rationalisation plan, proven through the various official announcements, made to
It cited as examples, the binding term sheet executed with IPIC, the shortlisting of selected bidders for the monetisation of Edra Global Energy Berhad and the ongoing sale process for Bandar Malaysia.
“We reaffirm our commitment to the success of the rationalisation plan and will continue to issue official progress updates on a regular basis.” it added. — Bernama
