CHALLENGES :-

Datuk Haji Ibrahim always looking for a profitable alternative for his company. However,
Brahims fowl move to boost earnings. Shareholders reject Brahim's RM95 millions proposed takeover
of Burger King. Recently, after failing to buy Burger King, Brahims is rumoured to be in talks to buy
The Chicken Rice Shop. Shareholders voted against the proposed takeover of Burger King franchise by
Brahims Holdings Bhd from Ekuiti Nasional Bhd at an extraordinary general meeting.
"At the end of the voting, 90% voted against the resolution," said Brahim's executive chairman
Datuk Seri Ibrahim Ahmad Badawi, who chaired the meeting.
After news of a possible acquisition of The Chicken Rice Shop, Brahims share price has
plummeted approximately 63%. Recent payment cuts and billing discounts by its main client MAS
(which will be undertaking deep cost cutting as part of its restructuring plan) will not be good news to
shareholders and investors.
Although it is trying to expand its earnings base beyond the national carrier through mergers and
acquisitions of other F&B businesses, it is still to early to say how this will affect Brahims future
growth. Brahims shareholders rejection of the Burger King acquisition was a major setback to its
diversification plans.
