MSM Malaysia Holdings Berhad Annual Report 2021

Acknowledgements & Appreciation There have been several new appointments to the Board in 2021 and we bid farewell to Dato’ Haris Fadzilah Hassan, an FGV representative who resigned on 7 April 2021. In his place we welcome Nik Fazila Nik Mohamed Shihabuddin and Azman Ahmad as FGV representatives and Dato’ Amir Hamdan Hj Yusof from KPF. They bring with them fresh perspectives that have enhanced the diversity of skills and experience at the helm. I take this opportunity to welcome them on board and to thank all members of the Board for their valuable service through a challenging year. On behalf of the Board, I would like to record my appreciation for the continued support extended by theMinistry of Domestic Commerce and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP), sugar industry authorities, customers, suppliers and business partners. These are vital relationships that has sustained our performance and growth in FY2021. My sincere gratitude and appreciation also goes out to our shareholders from FGV, KPF, PNB, EPF and others for their continued confidence and loyalty in supporting our aspirations and business plans. I take this opportunity to applaud the drivers of MSM’s turnaround performance - the management and all MSM employees, led capably by Group CEO Tuan Syed Feizal. Their positive mindset and commitment to progress has been exemplary. I would also like to acknowledge the strong bond of “Keluarga MSM” that has been forged through the challenges that tested us not just as a business, but as individuals. We have faced the loss of colleagues and loved ones due to the pandemic, and some have suffered loss of property in the floods that beset our country in December 2021. Rest assured the MSM way is to look after one another and place the welfare of our people first in all we do. As they say, “Kita Jaga Kita” and together we will overcome. Thank you.
