IOUpay has requested the trading halt in relation to the completion of the acquisition of a 42% interest in I.Destinasi Sdn Bhd (IDSB).

Trading halts are typically enacted in anticipation of a news announcement, to correct an order imbalance, as a result of a technical glitch or due to regulatory concerns.
