Is this for real?  But there is a saying due to geopolitics in the middle east, Qatar might lose their bid....

I believe that Qatar are trying to diversify their assets. With the current political situation, it may be wise because an airline like QR can suffer due to measures taken against Qatari businesses. Having some foreign assets will help reduce the risk of Qatar getting into economic difficulties.

Surely QR don't need MH, considering they have IAG in their hands, which is far more profitable.

From other sources I read:

 

Datuk Pahamin's group - The original AirAsia partner who was instrumental in Tony obtaining Tun M's blessing to start (his version of) AirAsia

 

Jentayu Danaraksa - Firm that tried to buy out MAS in 2014 from Khazanah, if you all may recall. One of their members include Shukor Yusof, former Standard & Poor's aviation analyst

 

Weststar Aviation - Mainly General Aviation and Helicopter charter service company. Partly owned by mega private equity firm KKR

 

Group backed by Qatari Investors - Most interesting out of the lot, but the most mysterious thus far. Rumored to already been active in the Malaysian aviation scene with shareholdings in major entities, but very discreetly.

 


Need to correct this a bit. The rumored four is excluding the Qatar group, who are instead BEHIND some of the groups.

 

The fourth group is led by ex-CEO of MAS Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman.

 

Meanwhile, Weststar was sort of nominated by Khazanah, and will likely partner with Datuk Pahamin's group.

Maybe IAG will the be ultimate entity owning it? Jeng jeng jeng.... ;)

Well they were rumored to be one of the 4 as pointed out by Jani.

 

Imagined if Temasek group is one of them.... though very controversial and highly unlikely... :P

Little-known fact:

GIC (Singapore's other Sovereign Wealth Fund), owns a bit more than 1% of Malaysia Airports ;)

That stake is worth about RM200m today
