IOI Corp, Dutaland rescind RM830m oil palm estate deal

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 9): IOI Corp Bhd and DUTALAND BHD [] have agreed to mutually rescind the sale and purchase agreement over the disputed RM830 million oil palm PLANTATION [] deal.

IOI Corp said on Wednesday that its unit Sri Mayvin Plantation Sdn Bhd and Dutaland's Pertama Land & Development Sdn Bhd had entered into a deed of rescission in a move to resolve all issues and disputes relating to the SPA that involved 11,977.91 ha (29,597.42 acres).

'With immediate effect whereupon the parties are released from all obligations and liabilities in connection with the SPA and neither party shall have any further claim against the other in respect thereto,' it said.

IOI Corp said following from the execution of the deed of rescission, OSK Trustees Bhd, being the stakeholder jointly appointed by the parties, will proceed to refund the deposit earlier paid by Sri Mayvin pursuant to the terms of the SPA together with all interest accrued thereon to Sri Mayvin.

To recap, on Oct 25, IOI Corp terminated its proposed acquisition of the land from Dutaland, citing the cancellation was 'due to non-compliance of certain terms and conditions'.

However, in a separate statement, Dutaland said it did not accept the reasons for termination of the sales and purchase agreement and directed the stakeholder, OSK Trustees Bhd not to remit the deposit of RM83 million, which was the 10% deposit paid.
