Mudajaya Corp bags RM489m contract for Rapid

KUALA LUMPUR: Mudajaya Group Bhd ( Valuation: 0.90, Fundamental: 0.35) has secured a RM489 million contract to build a workers village and temporary construction facilities for the utilities, interconnecting and offsites (UIO) facilities for Petroliam Nasional Bhd’s (Petronas) Rapid project in Pengerang, Johor.

The 15-month long contract could be an income booster for Mudajaya Group, which has been in the red for three consecutive quarters. In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, Mudajaya Group said its wholly-owned subsidiary Mudajaya Corp Bhd had been awarded the contract by PRPC Utilities and Facilities Sdn Bhd.
