BCIC’s ultimate shareholder, J Trust Co Ltd, Japan, and its business group, J Trust Asia Pte Ltd, Singapore, and JTrust Investments Indonesia, have declared their commitments in exercising 2.97 billion rights. If any original investors refuse to partake in the rights issue, their portions will be diluted by up to 21.90%.
