Sunway Construction Group Berhad made its debut as Malaysia’s largest pure-play construction company by revenue last year on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad on July 28 2015. The listing was aimed at enhancing Sunway Construction Group’s visibility and to increase its market share within the local construction industry by harnessing its three main strengths; its integrated construction capabilities, proven track record both locally and internationally alongside the strong backing of its parent company, Sunway Berhad. Its listing was well-received with the institutional offering oversubscribed by 4.6 times and retail portion oversubscribed by 2.7 times.

“The wins are a testament to the Sunway Construction Group’s management and board’s commitment to building a strong relationship with our investing community right from the start. We are humbled by the community’s recognition and would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their support in Sunway Construction,” said Chung Soo Kiong, Managing Director of Sunway Construction Group Berhad.

The awards recognise individuals and companies that have successfully embraced best investor relations practices. The winners were chosen based on surveys undertaken by NASDAQ in partnership with MIRA, and were extended to over 2,200 buy-side and sell-side professionals globally.
