The Sukuk was over-subscribed by 10 times, reflecting strong demand for quality Malaysian credit The first Sukuk that offers Islamic investors exposure to China s growth story, continuing the innovations in structured Islamic financial products Khazanah s initial investment in Parkson is monetised at over 900% its cost. 2

3 Managing Director of Khazanah, Dato Azman Mokhtar said: The transaction is a wonderful testament of Malaysia s and Khazanah s credit and economic fundamentals at a turbulent time in the markets when many countries and companies are afraid of tapping the international market. Deals are being pulled out there and we have entered instead and the strong terms and 10 times oversubscription could not be a stronger endorsement The deal also further promotes Malaysia s position as a leading developer and innovator in Islamic finance and interestingly, among others, this transaction can be said to recreate a New Silk Road by linking China and the Middle East, via Malaysia, of course, 3

12 Press Coverage on the Offering Strong demand for Khazanah s third exchangeable Sukuk Finance Asia 6 March 2008 Another difference versus the previous two bonds was that the deal was launched and priced on the same night. In fact the books were open for only three hours after the close of the Malaysian market, compared with five days of bookbuilding for the other two transactions. The limited offer period was clearly enough though, since both portions of the deal were covered after just one hour. By choosing an underlying stock that is listed outside Malaysia, Khazanah was also able for the first time to introduce the possibility of hedging the equity option. Khazanah sells stake Parkson Retail Bloomberg 6 March 2008 PAKA Capital Ltd and Khazanah Nasional Bhd are selling a stake worth as much as HK$578.4 million (US$74 million) in Parkson Retail Group Ltd, a Beijing-based department store chain. Parkson.s shares more than doubled in 2007 as the company lured more shoppers to its store in China, the world.s fastestgrowing major economy. The retailer, which has 41 stores in 26 Chinese cities, posted a 47 per cent gain in 2007 annual profit to 676 million yuan. The fact that investors can short-sell the stock is likely to have factored in the decision against an extended marketing period, as that would have increased the pricing risk. The premium was fixed at the top of the 32% to 37% range, while the yield was also set at the most favourable end for the issuer at 0.69%. It was offered in a range up to 1.39%. According to sources, the bonds attracted about $6 billion of demand, or more than 10 times the final size. There was no definitive breakdown of either demand or the final distribution, but one source says the allocation to Middle Eastern accounts was approaching similar levels to the previous Khazanah sukuk exchangeable when they walked away with about 50%. The demand from these accounts was said to have been almost enough to cover the entire deal. Khazanah Nasional To Sell Parkson Stake South China Morning Post 6 March 2008 "Orders for both tranches were well covered three hours after they were launched for Asian investors although the book will stay open for the European market," a source said. "Half of the orders were placed by long funds (those with only long positions on shares) while the remainder came from hedge funds and private investors." 12
