Description of other type of transaction Please refer to column "Circumstances by reason of which changed has occured"
Circumstances by reason of which change has occurred Change in particulars of TAK's deemed interest in the 4,875,000,000 Maxis Shares following the disposal of the 4,875,000,000 Maxis Shares by MCB (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Binariang GSM Sdn Bhd (“BGSM”)) to BGSM Equity Holdings Sdn Bhd (“BGSM Equity”) (an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of MCB and BGSM) pursuant to a Share Purchase Agreement dated 20 December 2013 entered into between MCB and BGSM Equity (“SPA”). The SPA was entered into pursuant to an internal corporate restructuring exercise undertaken by BGSM group of companies, as part of an overall debt refinancing exercise.

This internal corporate restructuring involves an intra-group transfer to BGSM Equity of the entire 4,875,000,000 Maxis Shares owned by MCB. Consequently, there is no change in the effective shareholding of BGSM and MCB respectively, after this internal corporate restructuring.

On completion of the SPA, the 4,875,000,000 Maxis Shares will be registered in the name of BGSM Equity.

BGSM holds 100% equity interest in MCB, which in turn holds 100% equity interest in BGSM Management Sdn Bhd (“BGSM Management”). BGSM Management holds 100% equity interest in BGSM Equity, which will be the registered holder of 4,875,000,000 Maxis Shares representing approximately 64.97% of the total issued and paid-up share capital of Maxis.

TAK's deemed interest in the Maxis Shares arises by virtue of PanOcean Management Limited’s (“PanOcean”) deemed interest in the Maxis Shares. PanOcean is the trustee of a discretionary trust, the beneficiaries of which are members of the family of TAK and foundations including those for charitable purposes.

PanOcean holds 100% equity interest in Excorp Holdings N.V. which in turn holds 100% equity interest in Pacific States Investment Limited (“PSIL”).

PSIL holds 99.999% equity interest in Usaha Tegas Sdn Bhd (“UTSB”).

UTSB holds 100% equity interest in Usaha Tegas Equity Sdn Bhd (“UTE”), while UTE in turn holds 100% equity interest in each of Wilayah Bintang Sdn. Bhd., Tegas Mahsuri Sdn. Bhd., Besitang (M) Sdn. Bhd. and Besitang Utara Sdn. Bhd., which in turn holds 100% equity interest in Wilayah Resources Sdn. Bhd., Tegas Puri Sdn. Bhd., Besitang Barat Sdn. Bhd. and Besitang Selatan Sdn. Bhd. (collectively, “UT Subsidiaries”) respectively.

The UT Subsidiaries hold in aggregate 37% equity interest in BGSM.

Although TAK is deemed to have an interest in the Maxis Shares, TAK does not have any economic or beneficial interest over the Maxis Shares, as such interest is held subject to the terms of the discretionary trust referred to above.
