Group Managing Director's Statement

Dear Valued Shareholder,

The past 12 months have witnessed global instability at a level that is unprecedented in recent times. Coming off the back of the COVId-19 pandemic and its resulting supply chain disruptions, the Russia-Ukraine conflict has further destabilised the global economy, leading to spikes in energy and raw material prices.

During this time of geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty, our business divisions have displayed commendable resilience, while at Group level we have steadfastly stayed the course on our long-term business transformation plan, executing on operational efficiency measures and investing in our core assets.

This Group-wide focus on building capabilities and enhancing competitiveness within our core business divisions is reflected in our report theme for Financial Year (‘FY’) FY2022: “Strengthening Competencies”. It describes the efforts we continue to make in building capabilities and expanding capacities across our business divisions. Furthermore, it recognises the need to develop greater competitive advantages to successfully compete in fast- evolving operating environments.

On that note, please take the time to read the analysis below to understand how the committed actions we have taken in FY2022 will enable us to weather challenges yet to come and build towards a future of consistent and sustainable growth.

– Ahmed Fairuz bin Abdul Aziz
