Today, NST printed that NasionCom was oversubscribed 69.99 times, the Star printed it as 89.99 times.

I wonder who did the proof-reading. :rolleyes:

Yesterday NST wrongly captioned a picture of Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong as the Chairman of Genting Group, while Star correctly captioned him as the founder.

nst is correct as per http://announcements.bursamalaysia.com/linkwebmainpage.nsf/lca.htm

A total of 26,159 applications for 354,993,500 shares were received from the public for a total of 5,000,000 shares available for public subscription, which represents an oversubscription rate of 69.99 times.
