SINGAPORE - Shareholders of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) should understand what is at stake before deciding on a new offer by Keppel Corporation to take the company private, said Mr David Gerald, president of Securities Investors Association Singapore (Sias).

He said in a press statement on Thursday (Nov 11): "Keppel's significantly improved and attractive final offer for SPH this week is a game changer, although the Cuscaden Peak cash offer will remain attractive to those who cannot wait for long-term gains and only want all in cash."
