Singapore, 18 June 2011 - ShareInvestor, the financial internet media and technology company and a subsidiary of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH), today held the Malaysia Gems 2011 at the DBS Auditorium.
This was the second Malaysia GEMS following the success of the inaugural event last year. The event was a collaboration with Bursa Malaysia and SPH's business daily, The Business Times.
Malaysia GEMS 2011 is a cross-border investor relations roadshow that showcases the investment merits of Malaysia public-listed companies. Senior management and executives from eight companies in industries ranging from oil and gas, construction and property development to healthcare made presentations on their business prospects and future plans.
Industry experts and market analysts from Maybank Investment Bank and CIMB Investment Bank, as well as selected senior executives, also discussed the prospects of Malaysia’s economy, stock counters to look out for and the industries that are linked to Malaysia’s economic transformation programmes.
The list of participating Malaysia public-listed companies is given in the Appendix.
Mr Christopher Lee, Chief Executive Officer of ShareInvestor, said: “ShareInvestor is pleased to welcome back Malaysia GEMS. We leverage on the Internet and events to promote dialogues between investors and public listed companies. Malaysia GEMS 2011 presented Singapore investors with more options to tap on the growing opportunities and potential of Malaysian companies.”
Dato’ Tajuddin Atan, Chief Executive Officer of Bursa Malaysia Berhad, who attended the event, said, "The past year and a half has been an exciting one for Malaysia with the introduction of the Government Transformation Programme and the Economic Transformation Programme. The development from the New Economic Model and the Economic Transformation Programme will see a multiplier effect in several key sectors such as construction, property, commodity, and financial services, among others. Through Malaysia GEMS 2011, investors in Singapore were provided with first-hand information from companies about their vision and long-term growth plans. These are some of the companies that are linked to Malaysia’s transformation programme."
Mr Alvin Tay, Editor of The Business Times, said: “The Business Times’ editorial strength lies in our reach to investors and business decision makers. Our stories and commentaries on companies’ financial results and government policies have helped investors to see investment opportunities beyond their national boundaries. Participants at Malaysia GEMS 2011 would find our editorial coverage an essential guide in helping them make informed investment decisions".
