- Malaysia's Khazanah is apparently looking to raise $3 billion by listing its big healthcare subsidiary, Integrated Healthcare.
- Kazakh's Samruk-Kazyna will sell "non-specialized assets". Im not quite sure what that means or whether its part of the 'People's IPO'. But when theres a new boss, there are generally new priorities. And so it goes at SK.
