Amongst our various business divisions, our Concession Division will be the most excited in 2022. The division as well as the Group as a whole is eagerly anticipating for the completion and opening of our maiden highway concession, the East Klang Valley Expressway (“the EKVE”). Scheduled to complete in early calendar year 2022, the EKVE will take its place as the Group’s primary strategic asset. With toll operations targeted to start soon after completion, the EKVE will be an additional source of revenue for the Group. The Board and I have been waiting eagerly for this moment for many years. We believe that the EKVE, being part of the Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road, will be a significant and important addition to the Klang Valley highway network and prove to be a boon to many drivers. In turn, we expect that the EKVE will be a major income contributor to the Group.
2021 saw the Plantation Division picking itself up from the lows of the previous period as reported in the 2020 annual report. 2021 saw the division surge to be the second largest revenue contributor for the Group with recorded revenue of RM124.3 million which totally surpassed the revenue of RM46.8 million recorded for the entire 18-month financial period ended 30 June 2020. The significant increase was due to a number of factors, higher utilisation of the estate’s mill, increase in internal production and higher crude palm oil (“CPO”) prices overall.
