Cash Companies


A Bhd has disposed of its core business resulting in it triggering the Cash Criterion. Before it is classified as a Cash Company, A Bhd has existing investments in short-dated securities with institutions other than financial institutions licensed by Bank Negara Malaysia ("BNM"). How does A Bhd comply with paragraph 8.03(4) of the Main LR?

​Upon triggering the Cash Criterion, these short-dated securities must be placed with a custodian. When these short-dated securities mature or are converted into cash, A Bhd must immediately place the funds with an account opened with financial institutions licensed by BNM, and operated by the custodian.
