Malaysia Airlines shares suspended pending announcement
KUALA LUMPUR Aug 29 (Reuters) - Shares in Malaysia Airlines (MAS) will be suspended on Friday ahead of a material announcement.
MAS said its shares will be suspended from 9 a.m. local time (0100 GMT), confirming an earlier report by Reuters.
The share suspension comes ahead of the announcement of the airline's planned restructuring, which could include job cuts and a change in top management.
Khazanah Nasional, the airline's majority shareholder, will be holding a press conference on MAS at 3 p.m. local time(0700 GMT) on Friday.
MAS reported a net loss of 307.04 million ringgit ($97.27 million) in its second quarter and said its earnings in the second half will be hit by lower passenger bookings after the two jet disasters this year.
