UEM Sunrise stated in a media release that the disposals of the Lands are in line with its three-phase strategic turnaround plan: Triage, Stabilise and Sustain, particularly under the first phase, Triage, to transform the company into a balanced real estate player with the immediate goal of strengthening financial performance via, among others, monetisation of non-strategic lands.

“Our immediate focus in Johor is to activate more residential development projects. This disposal will allow us to monetise some of our land banks in Johor while still leveraging on the economic activities that will be created from the proposed industrial development by PGB Landmark to boost the demand for our planned residential developments within the vicinity of the Lands,” said UEM Sunrise chief executive officer Sufian Abdullah.

Paragon Globe executive chairman Datuk Sri Edwin Tan Pei Seng said: “The Land acquisitions will grant PGB with opportunities to create greater economic value to Johor Bahru as well as increase our earnings potential over the medium to long term.”
