PETALING JAYA: MyEG Services Bhd has been granted a six-month extension by the Home Ministry for the voluntary repatriation of illegal foreign workers programme. The group said that it had received a letter dated December 20, 2017 from the Home Ministry in relation to the extension of the programme, which was initially scheduled to expire on December 31. "The extension is from January 1, 2018 to June 30, 2018. The extension has no fixed value as it is dependent on the number of foreign workers successfully repatriated," it noted. The extension is expected to contribute positively to the earnings of the company for the financial year ending June 30, 2018. MyEG's shares gained 0.41% to close at RM2.46 with some 17.02 million shares done.
