Khazanah Nasional Bhd may be considering taking some government-linked companies private to help with their restructuring process in order to achieve KPIs. Earlier this week, K&N Kenanga had already speculated taking Proton private may be an option to expedite decision making to turn the company around.

If Proton goes private, it will no longer have to deal with issues with minority shareholders when making decisions. Khazanah Nasional has to bid for remaining shares it does not own in Proton Holdings Bhd before it can take it private.
