The year 2016 marked the continuation

of our expansion at UEM Edgenta

Berhad (“UEM Edgenta” or “the

Company”) as we strengthened our

operations in Malaysia and regionally

through strategic acquisitions as well

as organic growth. We completed two

acquisitions – that of KFM Holdings

Sdn Bhd (“KFM”) and Asia Integrated

Facility Solutions Pte Ltd which owns

UEMS Pte Ltd (“UEMS”) – which add to

our Integrated Facilities Management

(“IFM”) offerings in the healthcare and

sustainable green facilities sectors. We

established a township management

business; set up a new subsidiary to

undertake infrastructure management

and consultancy in Indonesia; and

established ourselves as a forerunner

in technological innovation by setting

up a cutting-edge Command and

Contact Centre (“CnC”) which puts us

at the forefront of harnessing the

Internet of Things (“IoT”) for the

delivery of our services.

MANAGEMENT

DISCUSSION

AND ANALYSIS

With UEMS, we extend our healthcare services regionally

with operations in Singapore, Taiwan and Malaysia; providing

support services to over 170 public and private sector

hospitals with more than 45,500 beds. It intensifies our

presence in the private healthcare sector, expanding the

services we have been providing to public hospitals in

Malaysia under Hospital Support Services (“HSS”) concessions.

Our acquisition of an 80% equity stake in KFM further builds

our capabilities in retrofitting and green building solutions,

while presenting an opportunity into the Middle East via its

operations in the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”).

The incorporation of Edgenta TMS Sdn Bhd (“ETMS”) allows

us to collaborate with developers, asset owners and town

councils to enhance the quality of life of residents and

occupants of townships, communities, mixed use

developments and buildings. Despite being established

during a particularly challenging time in the property market,

ETMS is already making a name for itself, having managed

to secure contracts in the southern region.

In Indonesia, we have set up a base to grow our infrastructure

consultancy and services through PT Edgenta PROPEL

Indonesia, a subsidiary of Edgenta PROPEL Bhd (“Edgenta

PROPEL”).

Internally, we continued to nurture a strong sense of identity

within UEM Edgenta by building the capabilities of our

employees via the EDGE20 programme. Launched in January

2016, EDGE20 aims to

E

ngage and

D

evelop our people to

G

row their capabilities and competencies to achieve

E

xcellence as we move towards year 2020. An internal

communication event called ‘Edgenta Star Huddle’ was

created as a platform for the management to engage and

share corporate developments periodically with employees

from all services and sectors.
