Chairman’s Statement 15 SIAH BROTHERS CORPORATION BERHAD O n behalf of the Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to present the Annual Report and Financial Statements of Siah Brothers Corporation Berhad for the financial year ended 31 March 2001. Financial Review The Group recorded a profit before taxation and provision for doubtful debts of RM8.74 million for the financial year ended 31 March 2001. The provisions of RM7.32 million were made on account of outstanding debts owed primarily from the turnkey construction of Plaza Phoenix, Empire Tower and Princess Hotel. Housing development, a core business of the Group, remained an important contributor to the Group’s earnings. The construction division witnessed a reduction in turnover on account of the completion of the campus and academic facilities for the International Institute of Islamic Thought and Civilization at Taman Duta, Kuala Lumpur and the luxury residential tower at The Peak, Signal Hill, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. For the year under review, cost cutting and rationalization measures continued to be implemented in order to reduce the effects of the current economic conditions. In the spirit of corporate governance and transparency, the Board had also implemented a policy to continuously review the recoverability of debts and the carrying value of investment. Operational Review Housing Development and Construction Division Considering the competitive operating and business environment in which the division is operating, financial year 2001 was a fulfilling year for the division as it recorded satisfactory performance. During the year under review, the construction division was awarded with the construction of upgrading the Jalan Batu Caves-Simpang Tiga from Jabatan Kerja Raya Selangor. Currently, we are actively negotiating for several Government projects which we hope will give the Group good returns over the next few years. Aerial View Of Taman Mastiara, Kuala Lumpur

In addition, the division had also entered into a joint venture project development agreement with TA Properties Sdn Bhd. Under the joint venture development, the division undertakes to develop 400 units of low cost apartment and 294 units of medium cost terrace house at Persiaran Selat Selatan, Pandamaran, Pelabuhan Kelang, Selangor, which is expected to commence in September 2001. Manufacturing Division Despite a very competitive business environment, the manufacturing division achieved significantly higher revenue of RM38.5 million, a 40% increase over 2000’s revenue of RM27.6 million. However, in spite of the increase achieved in the turnover, the division recorded a slightly higher loss of RM261,000 in the year in comparison to RM61,000 in the previous year. This was mainly due to a trademark of RM436,000 which is used for a 51% owned manufacturing subsidiary’s product, was written off as it is no longer expected to generate income in the foreseeable future. On 31 March 2001, the deal on the 60% equity participation in Paling Industries Sdn Bhd ("Paling") by Etex S.

Boardroom Change I would like to welcome on Board Encik Abdul Rahman bin A. Shukor who was appointed as alternate Director to Datuk Sim Peng Choon (a nominee Director for Permodalan Nasional Berhad) in the year 2001. I would also like to thank Encik Ibrahim bin Awang and Mr Yeoh Hock Thong who have both retired as Directors for their invaluable v Taman Mastiara, Kuala Lumpur contribution to the development of the Group Double Storey Shop during their terms in office. Prospect The Malaysian economy is expected to register a moderation in GDP growth of about 5% in 2001. The growth momentum built over the last two years, strength of economic fundamentals and the implementation of new pre-emptive measures by the Government to cushion the economic against a global slowdown are expected to generate sufficient impetus to sustain a respectable rate of growth of economic activities.
  19. 19. Chairman’s Statement ANNUAL REPORT 2001 18 The regulations to purchase and own property by foreigners have also been relaxed by the Government in order to encourage foreign direct investments and enhance the property market sector. The Group will continue to consolidate its position and restructure its operations to be leaner and more efficient. It will continue to focus on value-added activities such as strategic joint ventures with landowners ; while still sustaining its own housing development activities on its land bank. The construction sector in the Group’s principal markets are expected to be competitive in the forthcoming year. However, in view of the country’s continued economic recovery and with the Group’s diversification into East Malaysia’s projects, the Group expects to remain competitive in its existing businesses. The Group will also continue to seek and explore new avenues and opportunities both in Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia. v Bandar Utama Batang Kali Double Storey Terrace Under this macro economy backdrop, the Group is confident of achieving another satisfactory performance for the coming financial year in the Group’s housing development as well as construction divisions, both in Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia. Dividend The Board of Directors has recommended a first and final dividend of 1.5% less 28% tax in respect of the financial year ended 31 March 2001. Appreciation On behalf of the Board, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to my fellow members on the Board, management and staff for their continuing support, confident, commitment and contribution to the performance of the Group. Our satisfactory performance in this financial year would also not have been possible without the support from our shareholders, clients, sub-contractors, suppliers and business associates of the Group. Here, I wish to express my appreciation to the above parties. I would also like to thank the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange, the Registrar of Companies, the Securities Commission, our bankers, lawyers, auditors and agencies for their constant assistance throughout the year.

  20. 20. Penyata Pengerusi 19 SIAH BROTHERS CORPORATION BERHAD Pengenalan D engan sukacitanya saya bagi pihak Lembaga Pengarah membentangkan Laporan Tahunan Siah Brothers Corporation Berhad untuk tahun kewangan berakhir 31 Mac 2001. Kajian Kewangan Kumpulan telah mencatat keuntungan sebelum cukai dan peruntukan hutang ragu sebanyak RM8.74 juta bagi tahun kewangan yang berakhir pada 31 Mac 2001. Jumlah hutang ragu sebanyak RM7.32 juta diperuntukkan setelah mengambilkira hutang-hutang yang belum dibayar bagi pembinaan secara pukal Plaza Phoenix, Empire Tower dan Hotel Princess. Pembangunan hartanah & perumahan, yang kekal sebagai aktiviti utama Kumpulan adalah penyumbang utama kepada perolehan Kumpulan. Walaubagaimanapun, bahagian pembinaan telah mengalami penurunan dalam perolehannya setelah kampus dan kemudahan akademi untuk Institut Antarabangsa Pemikiran dan Tamadun Islam di Taman Duta, Kuala Lumpur dan juga pangsapuri mewah The Peak, Signal Hill, di Kota Kinabalu, Sabah siap dibina. Bagi tahun yang dibentangkan, Kumpulan meneruskan langkah-langkah rasional dan pengurangan kos bagi mengurangkan kesan-kesan daripada situasi ekonomi masa kini. Dengan semangat budaya korporat dan ketelusan, Lembaga Pengarah telahpun melaksanakan satu polisi untuk sentiasa menjalankan kajian menyeluruh untuk mendapatkan kembali hutang-hutang dan mangetahui nilai pelaburan semasa. Kajian Operasi Bahagian Pembanguan Hartanah & Perumahan dan Pembinaan Bahagian ini telah memperolehi pencapaian yang memuaskan dalam tahun kewangan 2001 walaupun beroperasi dalam suasana operasi dan urusniaga yang mencabar dan bersaing. Bagi tahun kewangan yang dibentangkan, bahagian pembinaan telah diberi tender oleh Jabatan Kerja Raya, Selangor untuk menaik-tarafkan Jalan Batu Caves – Simpang Tiga. Kami juga sedang dalam rundingan dengan pihak-pihak yang tertentu untuk mendapatkan beberapa projek kerajaan yang diharap akan dapat menyumbangkan pulangan yang menguntungkan kepada Kumpulan buat beberapa tahun akan datang. Di antara projek-projek utama yang dimajukan dan juga sedang dijalankan oleh bahagian pembangunan hartanah & perumahan bagi tahun yang dibentangkan adalah:- q Apatmen-apatmen bandar dan kedai-kedai pejabat di Taman Mastiara, Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur. Institut Antarabangsa Pemikiran dan Tamadun Islam
  21. 21. Penyata Pengerusi ANNUAL REPORT 2001 20 q Rumah-rumah teres di Perkampungan Sri Mahkota Aman, Kuantan, Pahang dan di Bandar Utama, Batang Kali, Selangor. Selain dari itu, bahagian ini juga telah menandatangani satu perjanjian pembangunan usahasama dengan TA Properties Sdn Bhd. Di bawah pembangunan usahasama ini, bahagian ini akan membangunkan 400 unit apatmen kos rendah dan 294 unit rumah teres kos sederhana di Persiaran Selat Selatan, Pandamaran, Pelabuhan Kelang, Selangor. Pembangunan ini dijangka akan bermula pada bulan September 2001. Bahagian Pengilangan Walaupun berada dalam suasana urusniaga yang bersaing, bahagian pengilangan masih mencapai perolehan sebanyak RM38.5 juta iaitu kenaikan sebanyak 40% berbanding perolehan sebanyak RM27.6 juta pada tahun 2000. Namun demikian, bahagian ini mengalami kerugian sebanyak RM261,000 berbanding dengan RM61,000 pada tahun sebelumnya. Ini disebabkan kos tanda perniagaan berjumlah RM436,000 yang digunakan untuk produk pengilangan anak syarikat yang dimiliki 51% telah dilupuskan kerana dijangka tidak akan mendatangkan pendapatan di masa akan datang. Perjanjian telah dimeterai pada 31 Mac 2001 dengan persetujuan perkongsian ekuiti sebanyak 60% dalam Paling Industries Sdn Bhd ("Paling") oleh Etex S.A, salah sebuah pengilang bahan-bahan binaan plastik yang terkemuka di Eropah. Di antara kelebihan-kelebihan yang akan dinikmati oleh Paling dari perkongsian ekuiti oleh Etex S. A. adalah :- q Paling akan dijadikan saluran utama bagi produk-produk Etex yang dibawa masuk ke Malaysia secara langsung yang akan meningkatkan perolehan perniagaannya. q Paling akan berpeluang untuk berurusniaga dalaman sesama Kumpulan Etex untuk memperolehi produk campuran dengan kos yang lebih efektif. v Barangan Keluaran Paling q Paling akan dipermajukankan oleh Etex sebagai pusat pembuatan dan pemasaran di sekitar ASEAN. q Paling akan diberi pendedahan kepada teknologi tercipta dan teknik pengeluaran yang canggih untuk mencapai mutu keluaran yang diiktiraf seluruh dunia. q Paling akan memilih produk-produk Etex yang berpotensi di pasaran ASEAN yang akan dikeluarkan daripada kilang Paling. v Barangan Keluaran Pali q Paling akan menggunakan sepenuhnya kelebihan Etex untuk mendapatkan kadar-kadar yang terbaik ke atas kelengkapan mesin dan bahan-bahan mentah. Perkembangan Korporat Pada bulan Februari 2001, Kumpulan telah menerima kelulusan daripada Suruhanjaya Sekuriti bagi :- (i) Cadangan Terbitan Hak Boleh Diisytihar Semula sebanyak 52,277,289 saham-saham biasa baru yang bernilai RM1.00 setiap satu dalam Syarikat dikreditkan sebagai dibayar sepenuhnya dengan harga terbitan RM1.00 setiap satu atas dasar satu saham biasa untuk setiap dua saham yang dimiliki ; dan (ii) Cadangan Terbitan Istimewa sebanyak 80,920,000 saham baru dalam Syarikat dengan mempertimbangkan tawaran Syarikat untuk menggantikan daripada pemegang-pemegang 1997/

Dokumen-dokumen yang berkenaan telahpun didaftarkan di pejabat Pendaftar Syarikat pada 19 Mei 2000. Pada 14 Julai 2000, Kumpulan telah menawarkan ESOS kepada pekerja-pekerja Kumpulan yang berkelayakan untuk membeli saham-saham biasa baru dengan nilainya RM1.40 setiap satu. v Perkampungan Sri Mahkota, Kuantan Rumah Teres Satu Tingkat Perubahan Lembaga Pengarah Bagi pihak Lembaga Pengarah, saya ingin mengalu-alukan Encik Abdul Rahman bin A. Shukor yang telah menyertai Lembaga Pengarah sebagai pengarah alternatif kepada Datuk Sim Peng Choon ( Pengarah nomini bagi Permodalan Nasional Berhad) pada tahun 2001. Saya juga ingin merakamkan penghargaan terhadap sumbangan berharga yang telah diberikan oleh Encik Ibrahim bin Awang dan Encik Yeoh Hock Thong sepanjang penggal mereka sebagai Pengarah Syarikat, bagi pembangunan dan pertumbuhan Kumpulan. Prospek Ekonomi Malaysia dijangka akan mencatat kesederhanaan dalam pertumbuhan Pendapatan Kasar Negara iaitu sebanyak 5% dalam tahun 2001. Dengan momentum pertumbuhan yang dibina dalam masa dua tahun yang lepas, kekuatan asas ekonomi dan pelaksanaan langkah-langkah baru oleh kerajaan untuk mempertahankan ekonomi daripada kemelesetan global dijangka akan merangsangkan kadar pertumbuhan aktiviti-aktiviti ekonomi. Kerajaan juga telah melonggarkan syarat-syarat pembelian dan pemilikan hartanah oleh orang-orang asing bagi menggalakkan pelaburan asing secara langsung serta meningkatkan sektor pasaran hartanah. Kumpulan akan terus mengukuhkan kedudukannya dan menyusun semula operasinya agar lebih efisyen dan berkesan. Tumpuan akan terus diberikan kepada aktiviti-aktiviti yang mempunyai nilai tambahan seperti usahasama yang strategik dengan tuan-tuan tanah sementara masih meneruskan pembangunan hartanah & perumahan di atas tanah yang dimiliki.
  23. 23. Penyata Pengerusi ANNUAL REPORT 2001 22 Sektor pembinaan Kumpulan dijangka akan terus bersaing dalam pasaran utama pada tahun yang akan datang. Walaubagaimanapun, memandangkan situasi ekonomi yang memberangsangkan dan kepelbagaian aktiviti Kumpulan yang melibatkan projek-projek di Malaysia Timur, Kumpulan dijangka akan terus bersaing dalam urusniaga sediaada. Kumpulan akan terus berusaha untuk mencari dan memperkembangkan peluang-peluang baru yang ada di Semenanjung Malaysia dan juga Malaysia Timur. Dalam situasi ekonomi makro, Kumpulan yakin akan meraih pencapaian yang memuaskan bagi tahun kewangan akan datang dalam bahagian hartanah & perumahan dan pembinaan Kumpulan di Semenanjung Malaysia dan Malaysia Timur. v Bandar Utama Batang Kali Rumah Kedai Dua Tingkat v Bandar Utama Batang Kali Rumah Teres Satu Tingkat Dividen Lembaga Pengarah mencadangkan dividen pertama dan terakhir sebangyak 1.5% selepas cukai 28% bagi tahun kewangan berakhir 31 Mac 2001..
