The Middle Eastern investor will be part of more than 10 cornerstones that IHH hopes to finalise by next week who will take up over 40 percent of the $2 billion offering, sources with direct knowledge of the deal told Reuters on Wednesday. This is the second major IPO in Malaysia this year after palm oil giant Felda Global's $3.4 billion deal, which is set to become Asia's largest initial public offering so far in 2012.
