Affin Bank Berhad

UHY Malaysia's Distressed Asset, Advisory & Management division was appointed by Affin Bank Berhad as the Receiver and Manager to dispose of Asian Neuro & Cardiac Center (ANCC) and sale of a 5 star hotel with Boustead Group.

Asian Neuro & Cardiac Center (ANCC)

Alvin Tee of UHY in Malaysia was appointed by Affin Bank Berhad as the Receiver and Manager of the property of Bio Science Capital Sdn Bhd (BSC). BSC owns the Asian Neuro & Cardiac Centre (ANCC) which is a six-storey purpose built medical centre located near the Subang Skypark. The indicative market value of the ANCC was more than RM100 million. The ANCC was later sold by Receiver and Manager to Sime Darby Berhad's (Sime Darby) Healthcare Division.

Sime Darby is listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia. Sime Darby is also Malaysia's oldest and largest conglomerate with operations in more than twenty countries throughout Asia Pacific and Europe with a workforce of more than 100,000 employees. 

Not related to Affin. However, I would rather say that we have the strength in completing these deals a largest conglomerate company, such as Sime Darby Group & Boustead Group.

Affin Bank Berhad (AFFINBANK) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Affin Holdings Berhad which is listed on Bursa Malaysia. In June 2005, it merged with the former Affin-ACF Finance Berhad. To date, it has a network of 82 branches nationwide. The Bank is constantly reviewing the geographical reach of its branches to better serve its customers.

The Bank serves both retail and corporate customers. The business units of the Bank comprise Enterprise Banking, Consumer Banking, Debt and Capital Markets and Hire Purchase.
