New Year Message by Dato’ Rozabil Abdul Rahman – Group Managing Director of Destini Berhad

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am pleased that the group has managed to show continued growth in 2015 with the completion of several key transactions, despite a globally challenging year. I believe these transactions are instrumental in transforming Destini into a global player in the aviation, marine and oil and gas businesses we operate in.

We have had our sights set on expanding our aviation and marine businesses into the commercial sector. With this we made strategic acquisitions and entered into partnerships with global players that we deem as a strategic fit to the Group.

During the year, we partnered UK-based Survitec Group International Ltd, a global manufacturer of personal survival equipment and Avia Technique Ltd, which specializes in component MRO for the commercial aviation sector.

In terms of acquisitions, we acquired Safe Air Technical Sdn Bhd which specializes in line maintenance of commercial aviation players. Our shipbuilding facility under Vanguard almost ran out of space, which in turn made us acquire another shipbuilder that has the capacity to supply paramilitary vessels and larger-type vessels.

To better serve our customers, we have also established a dedicated facility in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam to undertake MRO aviation services.

Combined altogether, these initiatives bring synergistic benefits to the Destini Group and huge cross-selling opportunities across our business units.

We now have access to a wider product and service offerings, larger production capacity, a broader and more specialized skill set and a reliable global network of technical support from which our customers can leverage on.

These initiatives set a strong foundation on which the group would be able to grow from in the coming years.

Furthermore, our efforts have come to fruition as we have secured new customers in 2015 from the public sector as well as the private sector. This is a testament to our credibility and strong track record built over the years. We are truly humbled and honored by the confidence placed in us and will continually strive to deliver our best.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate everyone in the Destini family for working together in transforming the group into what it is today. I certainly look forward to another year with all of you with hopes that we’d be able to repeat or accelerate the same growth trajectory that we have accomplished this year.

As we conclude this year and begin the new on a positive note, I wish you and your family a wonderful and prosperous 2016!
