The Singapore investment giant Temasek could move to divest its shareholdings in Shin Corp amid growing business and regulatory risk in the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Shinawatra family’s assets case.

Temasek, the major shareholder of Shin, may sell if the right buyer emerged, said Somprasong Boonyachai, Shin’s executive chairman and acting president.

“If a buyer emerged today, they would probably sell. [Temasek] has never indicated that it wanted to hold its investment forever,”

he told the Bangkok Post.

Mr Somprasong said he had spoken with Temasek executives earlier this week about the implications of last week’s ruling in the Thaksin assets seizure case and its potential impact on Shin and its associated companies.

But share prices for Shin and other telecom firms have plummeted in recent days amid fears that the government may seek damages from local operators.
