From Coke To EV Solutions

Datuk Jared Lim, Executive Director of Techna-X, unveils his ambitious plans to pivot from the loss-making metallurgical coke business to energy storage and capitalise on rising demand for electric vehicles (EV). The company's end game is to provide EV solutions but what would it mean for its other businesses in mobile app development and F&B (TGI Fridays and Teh Tarik)? Would they be sold? And is Jared expected to succeed the current Managing Director?
