Jalil Rasheed, CEO of BCorp told Bernama that the divestments of its interests in Razer Fintech is part of its transformation strategy to streamline operations and focus on higher growth opportunities across its core businesses.

“In the case of Razer, it was especially appealing as we had a significant return on our investment in a relatively short time.”

This is in line with BCorp’s plans to cut down its debts by half RM2.5 billion from RM5 billion over three years that was revealed in June this year.

As a part of this plan, the conglomerate had unveiled a three-year strategic roadmap to divest non-core businesses.

This news follows the shutdown of Razer’s e-wallet service, Razer Pay.
