  • Remembering Tan Sri Dato' Seri (Dr) Yeoh Tiong Lay, 1929 - 2017, 18 October 2017
    It is with deep sadness that we inform that the late Tan Sri Dato' Seri (Dr) Yeoh Tiong Lay, Executive Chairman of YTL Corporation Berhad and YTL Power International Berhad, passed away peacefully on 18 October 2017.

  • YTL Power Registers Full-Year Revenue of RM9.8 Billion (US$2.3 Billion) & Profit of RM755 Million (US$176 Million)
    Interim Dividend of 5.0 Sen per Share & 1-for-50 Share Dividend Declared, 29 August 2017

    Tan Sri Dato' (Dr) Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, CBE, FICE, said, “YTL Power’s operating performance remained relatively stable for the 12 months ended 30 June 2017. Although the merchant multi-utilities business in Singapore recorded lower revenue due to a decrease in electricity units sold, this was offset by lower operating and interest expenses, resulting in higher profit before taxation for the segment. Meanwhile, the decrease in revenue and profit before taxation for the water and sewerage segment in the UK resulted from the strengthening of the Malaysian Ringgit against the British Pound, whilst the mobile broadband network segment registered improved performance arising from the launch of nationwide 4G LTE services.

    “In our contracted power generation division, the extension for the supply of 585 megawatts of capacity from our existing power station in Paka, Terengganu, for a revised term of 3 years 10 months (from 2 years and 10 months previously), has now been finalised and is scheduled to commence on 1 September 2017.

    “In our new projects, earlier in the year, we increased our stake in Attarat Power Company (APCO) to 45%, from 30% previously, upon the project achieving financial close in March 2017. APCO is developing a 554 megawatt oil shale fired power generation project in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The project has a 30-year power purchase agreement for the plant’s entire electrical capacity with Jordan’s state-owned power utility, with an option for the utility to extend the operating period to 40 years, and is scheduled to come on-line in mid-2020. The Group is also working towards financial close of our 80%-owned Tanjung Jati A project, a 2 x 660 megawatt coal-fired power project in Java, Indonesia, which has a 30-year power purchase agreement with the state-owned electricity utility.”

With that in mind, we have emerged to build the largest all-4G LTE footprint in Malaysia with over 85% population coverage. And with our LTE launch in June 2016, we are pleased to offer Malaysia the most advanced ubiquitous VoLTE service. In fact, the first nationwide VoLTE service in an emerging country globally.

Our all-IP, high capacity 4G LTE Internet service supports multi-activities such as downloading or streaming movies, making calls etc. all at the same time,” Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh said.

    Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh added, “Over the past year, we have been working with the best of best in the industry such as Samsung, Qualcomm, China Mobile, Google and Elitecore Technologies to develop innovative, high quality and affordable LTE solutions and products, focusing on broadband coverage, speed and affordability. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our business partners for making this day a reality.”

    “I am pleased to note that YTL has invested RM4 billion to bring new communications solutions and technologies to Malaysia by building not only one, but two 4G networks, namely the WiMax and LTE networks,” Datuk Seri Panglima (Dr) Salleh Said Keruak said when officiating the launch.
