(Reuters) - Malaysian conglomerate Hong Leong Group and alternative asset firm TPG have agreed to buy Columbia Asia’s 17 hospitals and one clinic in South East Asia for about $1.2 billion.
The hospitals and the clinic are located in Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam, TPG said in a statement on Friday.
The 11 Columbia Asia hospitals in India are not a part of the deal, which is expected to close at the end of 2019.
