KUALA LUMPUR -- Shares of Top Glove finished 3.7% higher at 6.63 ringgit on Monday, following the Malaysian company's announcement on Friday of its 46.25 million ringgit ($10.92 million) purchase of a packaging materials company. 

Top Glove sealed a sales and purchase agreement with locally incorporated Eastern Press, in a move that the world's largest manufacturer of natural rubber gloves said would improve its "supply chain coordination and cost control." The deal is also in line with the group's business plan to produce "high quality gloves at low cost."
