(i) Bonus issue of up to 957,311,738 new B-Land Shares, credited as fully paid-up, on the basis of one (1) new B-Land Share for every one (1) B-Land Share (“B-Land 1st Bonus Issue”);

Accordingly, the last day of trading of B-Land Shares prior to suspension shall be on 6 December 2005.

To facilitate the B-Land Corporate Scheme, the B-Land Securities will be recalled on 13 December 2005, being the books closure date for the B-Land Corporate Scheme.

The BCB ICULS to be distributed pursuant to the Special Dividend-in-Specie will be distributed together with the entitlements of the Capital Repayment and Consolidation. The distribution is expected to complete before the listing of the BCB ICULS on Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (“Bursa Securities”). The BCB ICULS are expected to be listed and quoted on Bursa Securities upon completion of the rights issue of BCB ICULS to be implemented by BCB. The said rights issue is expected to complete by the end of December 2005.
