KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 4 (Reuters) - AirAsia Bhd, Asia’s largest budget carrier, said on Wednesday that its major shareholders are evaluating “all strategic options” with regard to investment and their stakes in the airline, but no decision has been reached yet.
In a statement on the bourse, the airline also said its board has not received any offers to take the company private.
The comments come after Reuters reported last month that AirAsia co-founder Tony Fernandes is sounding out investors to take the company private in a management-led buyout, after a critical research report knocked its shares to a seven-year low.
