MEI: No tender offer on Bank Artos' shares after rights issue
JAKARTA. The majority shareholder of PT Bank Artos Indonesia Tbk (ARTO) asserted there was no tender offer action on Bank Artos' shares after its rights issue, because there was no change in control.
This was revealed by the Director of PT PT Metamorfosisi Ekosistem Indonesia (MEI) Anika Faisal as quoted by Kontan.co.id on Thursday (16/4). She made sure there was no mandatory tender offer because there were no changes in control.
