The Buzz Continues On Astro-Maxis Merger

We talk to Kamarul on his latest corporate stories in The Edge weekly - one of them on why a merger between Astro and Maxis is still being talked about.

Kamarul shares that his source who has direct knowledge of the exercise says the merger will be announced next year and that work towards realising the merger at the shareholder level has started.

But does a merger between Astro and Maxis make good business sense?

Kamarul shares with us what he is hearing on the ground on this.

We also discuss his newsbreak on Putrajaya Monorail RFP that is to be called next January.

Kamarul also talks about his story on the uncertainty ahead over IHH's Fortis investment.

Listen in.
