KUALA LUMPUR: Icon Offshore Bhd's share price jumped as high as 17 per cent after it announced a new major shareholder in the form of Yinson Holdings Bhd chairman Lim Han Weng, and the launch of a mandatory general offer (MGO).

As at 10.24am, its share price was trading 7.5 per cent higher at 78.5 sen a share.

Yesterday the company announced that Ekuiti Nasional Bhd's special purpose vehicle Hallmark Odyssey Sdn Bhd sold a 50.2 per cent controlling stake to Liannex Maritime Sdn Bhd of Singapore for RM172.7 million.
