• BlackWall and UEM Sunrise will form a joint venture company to roll out the WOTSO co-working brand in Malaysia and Singapore. 

• The partnership complements UEM Sunrise’s long-standing core competencies in macro township development; high-rise residential, commercial, retail and integrated developments; as well as property management and project & construction services. 

KUALA LUMPUR, 28 February 2018 – UEM Sunrise Berhad (“UEM Sunrise”), one of Malaysia’s leading property developers has signed a Joint Venture Agreement with Australia’s largest collaborative workspace provider WOTSO, a subsidiary of BlackWall Limited (“BlackWall”) today to jointly create and operate sustainable co-working spaces in Malaysia and Singapore. 

The signing ceremony was carried out by UEM Sunrise’s Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib and was witnessed by its Chief Operating Officer, Commercial, Raymond Cheah; while BlackWall was represented by its Chief Executive Officer, Stuart Brown and witnessed by WOTSO Senior Manager, Thomas Aitchison. 

A 50:50 joint venture company will be formed to facilitate the implementation of co-working spaces in UEM Sunrise’s current and future projects, starting with Mercu Summer Suites, Kuala Lumpur in 2Q 2018. The 13,000 sq ft hub will hold approximately 240 members. For BlackWall, it is the first time that the WOTSO brand is entering the Malaysian market. The second foray for WOTSO in Malaysia will be in Imperia, Puteri Harbour with approximately 30,000 sq ft of spaces which will be launched in two phases. Phase 1 is targeted to be launched in 4Q 2018 whilst Phase 2 launch will be announced at a later part. Some of the other earmarked locations also includes Shah Alam, Singapore and Melbourne. 

Commenting on the signing, Anwar said, “This symbiotic partnership is aligned with UEM Sunrise’s vision, ‘Building communities of the future with you and for you’. We pride ourselves in being a lifestyle developer and a creative placemaker, going beyond the mere construction of brick and mortar. We strive for new ideas in managing spaces and bringing our developments to life. With UEM Sunrise’s long standing core competencies in macro township and integrated developments as well as property and facilities management, paired with WOTSO’s reputation as Australia’s largest provider of collaborative workspace hubs, we hope to leverage on each other’s resources and expertise. Through WOTSO, we aim to become a driving force in the co-working industry by integrating modern physical workspaces with intelligent digital systems.” 

WOTSO is flexible work environments made easy. We attract members from various scales and industries; ranging from freelancers, start-ups, small and medium-sized enterprises (“SMEs”) and large multinational companies. WOTSO is beyond just any shared office space with a WiFi connection and a bunch of desks. Together, we intend to create more jobs, build holistic communities and encourage the growth of local businesses and talents. We invite the global community of impact makers and change specialists to collaborate here, where we provide an environment filled with a warm sense of community and camaraderie. By providing the tools and services to grow their businesses with us, WOTSO will cultivate the perfect workspace to encourage creativity and innovation so that Malaysia’s SME scene, as well as digital and knowledge economy, will continue to grow at a spectacular rate,” added Stuart

“Ultimately, we are positive that collaborative workspace is the future of workplace. With the right design and management, businesses will thrive and be able to attract key talents into their organisations. For example, by embodying swanky creative minds, we have carefully nurtured an infusion of lifestyle and retail that has made Publika in Solaris Dutamas synonymous with retailing creativity, where art, style and taste converge in the most exciting and vibrant ways. Through WOTSO, we will continue to carry this DNA into our edgy, cool and hip co-working spaces, bringing people from different industries together, combining their dynamism and sparking new ideas. The flexibility that WOTSO offers is perfect for up-sizing and down-sizing businesses with not only yearly, monthly but also daily rates. When the two hubs reach stabilisation, the combined annual revenue for Year 3 should pass the RM3.5 million mark with Year 5 breaking RM4 million,” concluded Raymond

Unlike traditional office spaces, what makes WOTSO workspace hubs unique is their flexible adaptability. The first WOTSO location in Mercu Summer Suites, Kuala Lumpur will offer minimum start-up costs and turn-key solutions to their members. This means that as a business grows, WOTSO workspace hubs are just as adaptable, allowing the user to expand their number of workstations on demand by providing everything that is needed to get a business off the ground immediately. 

WOTSO’s vision is to create quality yet sustainable co-working spaces that consider the flow and interaction of its members. All WOTSO hubs’ design will be inspired by change makers and disruptors who desire for creative and social environments. Like all WOTSO members, WOTSO members in Malaysia will be entitled to free access in all 14 WOTSO workspace hubs currently operating in Singapore and Australia. 

  • Revenue up by 58% compared to 2016 supported by strong local and international property development activities
  • Profit after tax and non controlling Interest almost doubled compared to previous year

KUALA LUMPUR, 27 February 2018 – UEM Sunrise Berhad (“UEM Sunrise” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the financial year ended 31 December 2017 (“FY2017”) where total revenue recorded for the year increased to RM2,903.4 million compared to RM1,841.5 million reported for the financial year ended 31 December 2016 (“FY2016”), an increase of approximately 58%. Profit after tax and non-controlling interests for the year increased to RM280.1 million, an increase of approximately 90% compared to RM147.3 million for FY2016 on the back of strong revenue growth.

Property development activities contributed a total of RM2,249.4 million representing 77% of total revenue for the year, an improvement of approximately 40% compared to the property development revenue in FY2016 of RM1,611.5 million. The three largest contributors for the year were Aurora Melbourne Central followed by Residensi22 Mont’Kiara and Conservatory. International projects contributed the highest; constituting 43% of property development revenue followed by 35% from the central region and 22% from the south.

Revenue from land disposal contributed about 19% from the total revenue mainly from the land disposal in Richmond, Canada to South Street Development Group, a Canadian-based real estate developer in addition to the disposal of several pocket lands in Iskandar Puteri. Unbilled sales as at 31 December 2017 stood at RM4.8 billion.

Property development sales for the year was RM1,491.7 million, higher by 24% than its sales target of RM1.2 billion for 2017, contributed mainly from its inventory monetisation initatives, the newly launched Solaris Parq Residences in Dutamas, followed by the Company’s latest overseas venture, Mayfair in Melbourne. Sales from the central region represented 44% of the total property development sales followed by the Company’s international projects at 29% whist the remaining 27% was from the southern region.

The Company exceeded its 2017’s Gross Development Value (“GDV”) target of RM1.7 billion having launched a total GDV of approximately RM2.0 billion for the year. UEM Sunrise is proposing a first and final single tier dividend of 1.0 sen per ordinary share of RM0.50 each for the financial year ended 31 December 2017.

Commenting on the financial results, Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Sunrise said, “We are very pleased with our performance as the revenue for FY2017 sets a new record high since the Company was listed in 2008. Property development revenue contributed significantly to the Group revenue, charting its highest contribution driven by strong construction progress locally and internationally. 

The Group continue to embark aggressively in its asset monetisation and divestment strategy to generate funds required to increase presence in the central region. In executing our strategy to rebalance our land portfolio, we have acquired Equine Park land in Seri Kembangan, Selangor measuring 19.2 acres last year. We are currently exploring other opportunities to increase our landbank in the Central region.” 

Observing its project deliverables, he explained, “We completed 3,153 units of high-rise residential and mixed integrated products in both the central and southern regions in 2017. Arcoris Mont’Kiara, the Company’s integrated mixed development was handed over in stages starting in July whilst high-rise Residensi22 Mont’Kiara commenced handover in December. Teega, the Company’s high-rise residential development in Puteri Harbour was handed over in stages starting from March while the affordable high-rise Bayu Angkasa in Nusa Bayu was handed over in September.”

Anwar added, “The recent launch of Solaris Parq Residences has been remarkable, with high take up rate, amidst the soft market sentiment where buyers’ preference is skewed towards the mid-market and affordable products. Selling from RM870,000 per unit, we launched 576 units totalling a GDV of RM760 million in October last year and as at to-date, take up including bookings is 73%. Contribution from our luxurious Mayfair in Melbourne has been encouraging with take-up of about 32% to-date. Targeting 50% local Australians, at present close to 40% of our existing buyers are locals.”

Touching on the Company’s delivery for 2018, he said, “We expect to complete Estuari Gardens and Denai Nusantara both in Iskandar Puteri in the second quarter of 2018. Renovations and fitting works for the 4-star Hyatt House hotel in Arcoris Mont’Kiara is progressing well with anticipation to commence operation towards the end of the second quarter of 2018. In Melbourne, the first deck of our maiden project, Aurora Melbourne Central comprising 210 units in levels 10 to 32, with a GDV of AUD133 million, is expected to be completed in the second half of 2018 while Conservatory, with a GDV of AUD320 million, is also on track to complete this year. We hope to deliver all 446 units of Conservatory to our buyers before year end.”

“We will also continue to drive the overall vibrancy of our projects in Iskandar Puteri. Besides rejuvenating waterfront development Puteri Harbour, in January this year we appointed Atkins, a world-class master planner for the development of an International Land Use Master Planning for Gerbang Nusajaya’s Transit Oriented Development (“TOD”) for the lands surrounding the Iskandar Puteri High-Speed Rail station in Gerbang Nusajaya. This will be the next growth catalyst for Iskandar Puteri. The potential spill over benefits is immense, and we hope it will enhance the economic and social potential of Iskandar Puteri and Iskandar Malaysia as a whole.” 

Commenting on the current property market sentiment, “We take full cognisance of the challenges that lie ahead but we remain positive and will continue to leverage on the Company’s strategic imperatives for the next 12 to 18 months. We will always be on a lookout for opportunities to landbank a sizeable area for a mixed integrated township development in the Klang Valley. Our mission is to develop the next Mont’Kiara but at more affordable prices.”

“Meeting the market expectations on supplying affordable and mid-range products is also among our pursuits. Serimbun, a 215 units of double storey link houses with built-ups ranging from 1,993 to 2,117 square feet starting from RM630,000 per unit near the matured area of Bukit Indah in Iskandar Puteri was successfully launched on 10 February. 

We plan to launch a new high-rise residential apartment called Kondominium Kiara Kasih in Kuala Lumpur towards end of March this year. New phases of Serene Heights Bangi will continue to be unveiled, with the next one most likely in the third quarter of this year. Overall, we are targeting to launch a GDV of RM1.0 billion for 2018 mainly comprising these mid-market products. We are however ready to activate further launches depending on market condition.”

The Company plans to remain prudent in its targets for 2018 despite exceeding its 2017’s sales target. For 2018, UEM Sunrise’s sales target remains at RM1.2 billion.

– UEM Edgenta Berhad (“UEM Edgenta” or “Company”) today announced its unaudited consolidated results for the year ended 31 December 2017 (“FY17”), as well as dividend declaration for FY17. 

Revenue for Q4 FY17 increased by 28.5% or RM149.2 million, as compared to Q3 FY17 of RM523.1 million to RM672.3 million. This was mainly on the back of the Infra Services Division’s increased revenue of RM86.9 million from expressway works, and Consultancy Division’s higher contribution from design and project management support work of RM45.7 million. On a year-on-year basis, revenue for Q4 FY17 was 31.1% higher than the preceding year’s corresponding quarter of RM512.9 million. Profit Before Tax (“PBT”) was also higher year-on-year by 32.8% at RM75.4 million. 

Full-year performance 

Revenue for FY17 stood at RM2.1 billion, which is 34.3% higher than FY16’s revenue of RM1.6 billion. Healthcare Services and Infra Services Divisions continue to be the largest revenue drivers for the Company, contributing 43.0% and 40.7% of full-year revenue, respectively. 

PBT for FY17 was RM172.9 million, which was marginally lower compared to the previous year’s PBT of RM181.5 million, due to non-operational items such as an increase in interest expense of RM25.6 million from the Murabahah Term Facility (arising from the acquisition of Asia Integrated Facility Solutions Pte Ltd (the holding company of UEMS Pte Ltd)) and issuance of Sukuk, as well as an increase in amortisation of intangible assets of RM19.3 million. 

Taking into account a one-off gain on the disposal of the Company’s entire 61.2% equity in OIC of RM274.9 million which was completed on 4 December 2017, the Company recorded a full-year PAT of RM434.8 million. This represents a 9.3x increase against FY16’s PAT of RM46.6 million. PAT from continuing operations following the disposal of OIC stood at RM125.1 million for FY17. 

As at end-2017, UEM Edgenta’s gross gearing reduced to 0.35x and the Company is in a net cash positive position of RM143.7 million as a result of the disposal of OIC and repayment of debt via proceeds received from the aforesaid disposal of RM463.0 million, which has put the Company’s balance sheet on solid footing. 

Special dividend and 2nd interim dividend 

On the back of the aforesaid disposal and profits generated during the year coupled with improvements in working capital management, UEM Edgenta has declared a special dividend of 18 sen and a 2nd interim dividend of 5 sen which when aggregated with the earlier interim dividend declared in August 2017, would bring the amount of dividend payout to 31 sen for FY17. This amount represents UEM Edgenta’s highest dividend payout, following the disposal of OIC. The special dividend of 18 sen and 2nd interim dividend of 5 sen will be paid in April 2018 and May 2018 respectively. 

“The declaration of this special dividend and 2nd interim dividend is in line with our commitment to return excess cash from the disposal of OIC, and we will continue this commitment of rewarding our shareholders”, commented Dato’ Azmir Merican, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Edgenta. 

Outlook 2018 

Moving forward, in FY18, UEM Edgenta expects to continue to deliver strong dividend payout and return to shareholders. This will be backed by its strong and stable earnings as well as growth in all of its business divisions. 

Specifically, the Company expects organic revenue growth across all Divisions on top of the delivery of existing projects, such as the provision of hospital support services in the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia; housekeeping for the KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital in Singapore; maintenance of the North South Expressway and East Coast Expressway 2; design and project management support for Pan Borneo Highway; and township management services for mixed developments in Iskandar Puteri Region, Johor as well as high performance green building project and integrated facilities management services for various clients. This will be complemented by improved cross-selling between the respective Divisions and the harnessing of technology to deploy innovative and holistic product offerings that meet market demands. 

Operational excellence initiatives and thereon margin expansion will also be key for UEM Edgenta in FY18, so as to result in a stronger quality revenue base and profitability post-OIC disposal. The Company will continue to realise synergies from its acquisitions, and deploy technology-based enablers to its customers, as well as rolling out performance-based contracting.
